This weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series, “Crossroads,” which corresponds with our Lenten journey to the Cross. The first message is entitled “Lord of the Sabbath” and looks at three Sabbath stories from Jesus’ ministry in Luke 6:1-11 and 13:10-17. I started with an overview of the significance of the Sabbath followed by an exploration of Jesus’ message and identity as Lord of the Sabbath. I also spent a brief time talking about the Pharisees and hypocrisy.
Also, join in with the daily devotional and reading plan for this series here.
