Passage: Luke 8:1-21 Speaker: Pastor Will Galkin Series: The Gospel of Luke - Past Promises, Present Redemption
Speaker: Will Galkin - At this phase of Jesus Christ's ministry, he begins to separate those who can hear his voice from those who are only following him for selfish motivations. This separation comes about through his clever use of parables. These short, pithy fictional stories seem to frustrate the lost while at the same time encouraging and clarifying for real disciples of Christ. Specifically, in Luke 8:1-21, Jesus identifies the ability to hear God's word and obey it as a mark of a true follower of Jesus.
