The Rev. Vaughan Roberts: two more audio sermons on the Gospel of Luke

November 24, 2009

Continuing with the series on Luke’s Gospel, titled “Jesus, Saviour of the World”, preached by the Rev. Vaughan Roberts of St. Ebbe’s Church, Oxford in the United Kingdom, here are two more audio sermons:

J.C. Ryle admonishes us concerning temptation, the subject of Luke 4:1-13, where Jesus faced His temptation by the devil:

Let it never surprise us, if we are tempted by the devil. Let us rather expect it, as a matter of course, if we are living members of Christ. The Master’s lot will be the lot of His disciples. That mighty spirit who did not fear to attack Jesus himself, is still going about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. That murderer and liar who vexed Job, and overthrew David and Peter, still lives, and is not yet bound. If he cannot rob us of heaven, he will at any rate make our journey there painful. If he cannot destroy our souls, he will at least bruise our heels. (Gen. 3:15.) Let us beware of despising him, or thinking lightly of his power. Let us rather put on the whole armor of God, and cry to the strong for strength. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7.)

This is much needed advice for any time in history – particularly the present!
