5th Sunday after Trinity – Sunday 26th June 2016 –Luke 9:51-end.

At the start of the ‘Trinity’ season, I’m asking about the different persons of the trinity knowing that they are indeed one God. 

From this passage:

what have I learnt about God the Father?

what insights have I about God the Son?

what inspiration may I gain from God the Holy Spirit

1. what have I learnt about God the Father?

  1. The Kingdom of God is forward looking. v62 There is an urgency, a single minded dedication to its cause.
  2. God the Father does not command fire to come and destroy this village.
  3. God can see through our excuses, our ‘but’s.

2. what insights have I about God the Son?

  1. Jesus has a forwarding party to prepare for his coming. This journey to Jerusalem is organised.
  2. He’s ‘on the ball’ to rebuke James and John for their wrong thinking.
  3. Jesus seems to be ‘on a mission’. Ready, urgent, giving snap answers, giving short commands. Woffle has disappeared.

3. what inspiration may I gain from God the Holy Spirit

  1. Is setting his face to go to Jerusalem an act of will or is he being pulled there by the Spirit? Is the Spirit acting like a magnet? v51
  2. How is Jesus coping with the days drawing near to be taken up? How is he sleeping at night? v51
  3. How is Jesus not getting distracted by others’ needs and wants?
