This weekend as we gather during the season of Pentecost, we will continue the series called “Living It Up,” which is focusing on what a Spirit-led life looks like. We are reflecting on several passages from the Gospel of Luke. So far, we have thought about “Freshening Up” and “Giving It Up.” The next message will be “Don’t Get Hung Up.”
Dr. Bond looks at two similar short stories from Luke 13 and 14. Again, we find Jesus being hypercritical of hypocrites! Why is he so upset? Why does he hammer them so hard for their efforts to try to follow their religious rules and regulations? And…do we get hung up on rules and laws that keep us (or get us off the hook) from offering help and hope when it is needed?!
