Do you serve people who feel like underdogs?
The story of Jesus' last days on Earth, as recorded in the Gospel of Luke, provide some of the New Testament's most powerful inspiration for the "underdogs" among us.
Richard A. Hasler draws from a deep well of modern-era stories to illustrate Jesus' words of comfort and hope to people who seemed foolish, destined to lose in life.
Learn how Albert Schweitzer "wasted" his gifts to become a missionary to equatorial Africa; how Feodor Dostoevsky depended on the grace of God to create beautiful work out of a broken life; how one young believer ministered to a woman living with a family of Satanists in an unlikely place; and more.
These 12 sermons included in The Last Days reminds us we have the strength to serve, persevere and trust in Jesus Christ, even when doing so looks foolish, because we follow the king of underdogs ... until the last days and forevermore.
