10 Tweets on “Ministry in the Interruptions” (Luke 8:40-56)

Here’s 10 Tweets from my sermon last weekend in our “Journey to Easter” Series:

1/ When the healing happens, it stops him in his tracks. It looks like it catches him off guard.

2/ He embraces the interruption as a divine appointment.

3/ You can’t hurry God.

4/ Jesus isn’t feeling rushed because he knows he can do something bigger & better than a healing.

5/ Jesus has broader concerns: He wants to restore to wholeness and build faith.

6/ If you have put your faith in Jesus, you have already been promised resurrection by Jesus himself. Will you apply faith while you wait?

7/ Right there, in the very thing you most fear, is an opportunity to grow stronger in faith. 

8/ The ministry of Jesus is propelled and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

9/ The Holy Spirit who propelled and empowered Jesus in his ministry is the same Holy Spirit who propels and empowers his followers in ministry. 

10/ Beware of your calculations (who is more strategic, etc.). God’s ways are counterintuitive. He uses the weak. He uses the cross.
