Luke 5:12-26 Two significant acts when Jesus healed • He touched the leper. • He forgave the sins of the paralytic. What we learn from these acts. • Jesus didn’t just heal for healing to be a sign. • Jesus
The Call of Jesus Luke 5:1-11; 27-32 Two temptations to ignore the call • You don’t feel good enough. • Other’s don’t feel you are good enough. The Truth • Jesus doesn’t base his call on what you or others

The Gospel According to Luke Expectations of Evangelism – A Lesson from the Life of Jesus Luke 4:14-30 Expectations of Evangelism • People notice Spirit-filled lives. – v. 15 • Simply point people to Jesus and be honest about what
Reason for the narrative
• Last piece of intentional evidence
• Jesus is clearly portrayed as divine
– Satan tempting him to do only something God can do.
– Resisting the “grand scale” temptations of Satan.
The “Spirit-filled” life
• Being “filled” ≠ “having within”
• “Within” – having access through the Spirit within us to God’s empowerment and wisdom.
• “Filled” – to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live by the wisdom and will of God.
How we live the Spirit-filled life
• Follow Jesus’ example.
• Jesus submitted himself to the Father (Phillipians 2:5-8).
• We must humble ourselves and submit to God.
Why live the Spirit-filled life
• A life lived without the influence and empowerment of the Spirit is a life lived for nothing.
• The Spirit-filled life is living free from the consequence of sin, reconciled to God for eternity. (Ephesians 4:17-24)
• True contentment, joy, peace, hope and love are experienced (Ephesians 4:25-5:2).
Jesus’s example of dealing with temptation
• Jesus resisted temptation because he submitted to the Father and was filled with the Spirit.
• In the wilderness, Jesus resisted the temptations of Satan to act independently of the combined will of the triune godhead.
• Essentially the Enemy tempts the Christian to act outside the wisdom and will of God.
• Intentionally submitting to God develops the same attitude as Jesus.
The big question today
• Are you the Christian who has the Holy Spirit within, or are you the Christian who is actually Spirit-filled?
• It is a daily choice for Satan is constantly looking for opportunity to tempt.
• The most opportune moments are when we are not choosing to submit to God.
