The Gospel of Luke represents one of the finest accounts of the life of Christ. Written by a gentile to a gentile, the physician Luke provides a well-researched and orderly account of the life and events of Jesus. Luke’s exacting detail has been corroborated by archeological discovery time and time again. He is considered a fine historian by many scholars and has provided the assurance of faith based on the facts of history.
One of the key elements of Luke’s Gospel is the that salvation is for all people: Jews and gentiles, rich and poor, men and women, the religious and the pagan. But he doesn’t stop there. Luke is a very practical Gospel with a focus on how Christians should live in light of their salvation that was a part of God’s great plan from the beginning.
I love the Gospel of Luke. I always have. It has been my favorite of the four Gospels because of its straightforward and hard-hitting depiction of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. I appreciate that Luke, the physician turned historian, was enlisted by God to pen this thorough and forthright portrait of the long awaited Messiah. If you desire to better understand the heart, concerns, and priorities of our Lord, then give yourself to a detailed study of Luke’s Gospel.

The Impact of Repentance
Dig into the key verse for Book of Luke. We should rejoice in our salvation and pursue our sanctification knowing that when God works repentance in our lives his forgiving grace entirely covers our sins and permanently redirects our lives.
