Luke 19:45-48 The Church Loved by the Local Community

Sam Swadling 22 May 2016 Luke

When Jesus upset the local political rulers of his day they were not able to touch him, why? The reason is that Jesus was so popular with the regular person that the authorities were afraid of the crowds. The early church had favour with all the people due to their generosity and love. The challenge this week is that we the church should live lives so evidently filled with the love of Jesus that the local community will defend us even if they don’t acknowledge Jesus as Lord.
