Fire: Baptism: Division

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 6

Luke 12:49  (ID: 2199)

Jesus warned the crowd in Luke 12 that faith in Him would create division. Alistair Begg leads us through these difficult words, helping us understand how true unity can be found only in Christ. If we find ourselves separated from God’s Son, we should seek Him “while He may be found.” As the One who can use fire both to raze and to refine, Jesus is the only person from whom we must never be divided.


Not Peace, but Division

49“I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled!
