Luke 4:20-32 - “Worthless Sinners Become Worthy Witnesses!”
This coming Sunday, February 3rd, Pastor David Carlovsky’s sermon, at Lord and Savior Ev. Lutheran Church in Crystal Lake, will focus on the thought that Jesus calls us as His messengers. The Old Testament lesson (Isaiah 6:1-8) highlights Isaiah's familiar response to his calling: "Here am I. Send me! (Isaiah 6:8). Pastor Carlovsky will preach on the Gospel lesson (Luke 4:20-32), which has Jesus returning to His hometown to preach the Good News. Sharing God's message and witnessing will be the focus.
The sermon theme will be: "WORTHLESS SINNERS BECOME WORTHY WITNESSES!"
Luke 5:1-11 - “Knowin’ Where You’re Goin’!”
For the following Sunday, February 10th, Pastor Carlovsky’s sermon text will be the Gospel lesson (Luke 5:1-11). Most people focus on the miraculous catch of fish in this story — but the sermon will address what happened next: Peter, James, and John just left their nets and boat to follow Jesus. Why would they do that? ...when they didn't know where they were going! The sermon will look at where these three disciples were “going,” with this title and outline: "KNOWIN' WHERE YOU'RE GOIN'!"
I. Going to listen!
II. Going to fish!
III. Going to go with Jesus!
