27. Going Against the Grain

Luke 6:1-5

We rejoice in last week's Anniversary Celebration, but today we'll return back to our study in Luke. Looking at Luke 6:1-5. We see Jesus and His disciples walking through a field of grain on the Sabbath. The Pharisees, the religious leaders of that day, question the disciples and want to know what they were doing and why they were picking grain. To the Pharisees the disciples were "breaking the law". 

In this passage, we’ll see those who seek to discredit and challenge Jesus’ ministry. However, Jesus responds to them with the example of David and points out to them that He is the Lord of the Sabbath. Living out the Gospel is not about how many rules and regulations we keep.  It's all about our devotion to Him, worshiping Him, and praising Him. So, we must ask ourselves: Why do we do what we do? Let's look together at our passage in Luke and learn what God has in store for us today.
