Sermon Notes: Repent or Perish (Luke 12:54 - 13:9)
Interpreting the times (12:54-59)
- Reading the weather signs, but not the signs of the time
- Settling the case on the way to the court
- Remember where Jesus is heading... the way of the cross
- Weather forecast: storm clouds rising
Interpreting the news (13:1-5)
- Sin leading to suffering? Disobedience leading to disaster?
- Not in these cases - just like Job, suffering not directly linked to sin
- The danger of dying suddenly & unrepentant
Interpreting the parable (13:6-9)
- The fruitless fig tree - pointless without fruit
- One last chance for the fig tree - bear fruit or cut down
- The time was short for Jerusalem - within 40 years, destruction. Will we hear and heed Jesus’ warning? Repent, or perish.
