Luke’s Gospel, Luke’s Good news, challenges the concepts of go that were held by the world in his time. God is a God for all people, all nations, everyone.
When Luke, who was a Gentile, looks back at Jesus’ family tree, Luke goes back, not to Abraham, as does Matthew who was a Jew, but to Adam. Luke sees the good news about Jesus as relevant to the needs of the entire human race.
Luke is writing a Gospel that must be taken to the very ends of the earth. The Amazing love of God embraces Everyone. In Jesus’ last words at the end of the Gospel, Jesus instructs his disciples that ‘repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in My name to all nations ‘Everybody’.
Repentance of sins, is falling short of ‘Mark’ we were created for, so none of us can boast, for we all have. But for those of us who have received forgiveness, it should be:
“I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The Life I now live in the flesh. I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”.
With Christ in our vessel, we can smile at any storms, which will keep us proactive, to see everyone, reach with The Gospel Message, just as Jesus commanded us to do.
