How To Hear Good News
Jesus Returns to Nazareth following his Baptism by John and a preaching tour of Galilee where he spoke in the "power of the Holy Spirit" and everyone glorified him. He then came home where people marveled at his "Gracious Words". This is not simply that he was well spoken, but like earlier he is in the power of the Holy Spirit and the words he speaks carry this power into the hearts and minds of listeners. Some welcome this good news but in Nazareth they do not.
This sermon explores how we can so align ourselves with God that we are receptive to Good News, even unexpected Good News.
