November 28, 2021 Speaker: Adam Polk Series: Guest Speakers

Topic: Exposition Scripture: Luke 12:1–12:12

Are you a loyal person?

Main Point: Our loyalty to King Jesus must remain firm despite all the things that will test it.

A Loyalty Check: 3 Evidences of Loyalty

1. Our Loyalty Is Evident in How We Live (Luke 12:1–3)

 

  • The Impact of Hypocrisy (Luke 12:1)
  • The Exposure of Hypocrisy (Luke 12:2–3)

2. Our Loyalty Is Evident through What We Fear (Luke 12:4–7)

  • A Call to Put Off the Fear of Man (Luke 12:4; cf. Proverbs 29:25)
  • A Call to Put On the Fear of God
    • Recognize the Unlimited Authority of God (Luke 12:5)
    • Rejoice in the Meticulous Care of God (Luke 12:6–7)

3. Our Loyalty Is Evident in What We Confess (Luke 12:8–12)

  • Our Confession Highlights Our Status (Luke 12:8–10)
  • Our Confession Is Empowered by the Spirit (Luke 12:11–12)

Our loyalty to Jesus matters! It trumps all other loyalties. It informs all other loyalties. And our loyalty will be tested.
