Looking to Jesus: Anointed

January 27, 2019

Luke 4:14-21 | |

If Jesus were you, how would he live your life? Luke wrote two volumes: the Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. In these he shows us the continuity between the ministry of Jesus and the life of the church. In a life of prayer, the Spirit came upon him in the Jordan river as he prayed. Just so, when the disciples were at prayer
at Pentecost, the Spirit came upon them. Jesus devoted himself to synagogue worship and opened the scriptures. The disciples devoted themselves to the apostles’ teachings. The goal of discipleship is not behavior modi cation but conformity to Christ. Jesus wants to live his life in us. All eyes on him.
