Doing life with Jesus

Over the summer weeks our Bible Reading and Sermon series will focus on stories from Luke’s Gospel, and will encourage us to think about what it looks like to do the ordinary things of life with Jesus. We will ask the questions…

Who Jesus himself chooses to spend his time with?

What are the relationships Jesus invests himself in?

In what situations does Jesus show compassion to others?

Who are the people Jesus makes a priority?

What do these stories tell us about what Jesus values and thinks important?

The one thing each of these stories has in common is that at their heart is a personal relationship with Jesus that arises out of an often unexpected encounter with him in the daily things of life.

As we read, think, and pray these stories; may we have our eyes and our hearts open to encounter Jesus in the ordinary things of life, and as a result may God “grow us in faith, and in our relationship with him.”
