Today’s sermon comes from a series on the life of Jesus described in the gospel of Luke. The passage comes from the second half of chapter 10 which helps us answer the question, “What does it mean to be his disciple?” 

The first part of chapter 10 says all disciples are given the gospel as a message which is to be communicated to everyone. In this last part of the chapter, we’re given the other side of being a disciple; instead of just being called messengers, we’re also called to be neighbors. We’re called to meet the needs of all the people around us, whether they believe the message or not. There are four things we learn: 1) it is required, 2) it has magnitude, 3) the motivation for doing it, and 4) how to do it.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 16, 2003. Series: “The Meaning of Jesus Part 2; Following Him.” Scripture: Luke 10:25-37.
