Sermon Notes: The Stronger, Something Greater Saviour (Luke 11: 14-36)
The Exorcism: displays his power (14)
- Simple, straightforward driving out of a demon
- Crowd amazed, but also leads to two other reactions:
The Excuse: denying his power (15-26)
- Jesus working for the devil?
- Is Satan’s kingdom divided? No, need another explanation
- ‘By the finger of God’ - link to Exodus 8:19
- Jesus the ‘stronger man’ defeating the devil
- Moral reform/self-effort not enough - need Jesus for victory
The Extraordinary: demanding his power (27-36)
- Wanting a sign (16)
- Sign of Jonah - 3 days in fish, resurrected, proclamation
- Queen of South (1 Kings 10:1) and Jonah will condemn this generation - something greater is here!
- Sight test - are you seeing light or darkness?
- Blessing for those who hear and obey God’s word
Jesus exceeds our expectations - he is the Stronger, Something Greater Saviour - will we see him as he is today?
