Luke 10:38-11:13 | Stephen Searles | "The One Thing"

Stephen Searles

Humans are in a constant search for what we need and those needs often equate to what we can do. In today’s passage Jesus tells us there is only one thing we need, and it is nothing that we can do it is all about who He is.

Who is God?

What does God do?
-Responds to persistence and boldness
-Answers prayer
-Forgives sin

Is God Good?
What do we need?
What do we need to do?
How does Jesus meet our needs?


Jeff Hundley

The One Thing We Need 

-A problem we face

-A prayer we’re given

-A promise we need


Mark Smith

The church has much to be thankful for by the disciple who simply asked Jesus how to pray. In Luke 11:1-13, Jesus teaches and calls His disciples to a prayer life that is personal, fervent, thoughtful, and dependent on God.
