Resource: His Word Abiding

Unbeknownst to me when I wrote last week’s blog, our pastor’s sermon this past Sunday was from Luke 24:25–27 (Emmaus Road story) on the role of Scripture in our knowing Jesus.

It is fascinating that the post-resurrected Jesus’ response to these two Emmaus Road walkers (likely part of the 72 disciples group) as well as later to the Apostles (Luke 24:44-46), is to point them to the Scriptures to understand the events they had just experienced.

In other words, to know Jesus, he points us to the Scriptures. His word is where he meets on a daily basis.

This is an excellent sermon well worth your time.  The speaker is Pastor Ken Robertson at International Anglican Church in Colorado Springs, May 19, 2019.

    This idea of abiding through His word seems to be a running theme for me during this current season. In preparing to preach on the Transfiguration from Luke 9 yesterday, one of the commentaries reminded me of 2 Peter 1, which Peter wrote 30 years after the Transfiguration. Peter obviously recalls the experience in vivid detail, but in verse 19 he goes on to say that we have something more sure, more fully confirmed than his experience on that mountaintop: the Word of God itself. Peter tells us that we would “do well to pay attention” to it.

    As you said, Jesus delights to meet us and speak to us through His word. This is far more valuable than pursuing temporary “mountaintop experiences.”

    As always, Scott, thanks for your writings. Our Lord continues to work through you to encourage and influence me and many others!
