In Luke’s Gospel people play a big part in the story.
In fact, Luke is interested in all sorts of people.
The reason Luke is interested in all sorts of people is because he has good news for them.
This good news is announced right at the start of his book as he records a message an angel spoke to a group of shepherds the night of Jesus’ birth.
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you, he is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11)
That’s the big message the whole of Luke’s gospel is about – that Jesus is the Saviour of the World.
Jesus has come to rescue people of all ages, of all backgrounds, of all nationalities who are lost because of their sins and He does this by dying in the place of sinners.
Luke sums all this up later in his book when he records some words that Jesus said: “For the Son of Man came to seek and save what was lost.”
Jesus came to rescue lost people and He will rescue you if you ask Him to.
