Luke 10:1-12, 17-20

Having earlier sent out His 12 disciples to preach and do miracles, then James and John wanting to call down heaven's fire to blast a village that wouldn't receive them, Jesus now sends out a much larger number of His followers to heal people and bring messages of peace and the availability of God's kingdom. When they report back in, Jesus' responses give us a breathtaking view into God's heart for His beloved creatures and what He is up to -- not only "back then" in His earthly ministry, but also right now, among us.

Luke 10:1-12, 17-20

Luke 9:51-62

Kati describes Luke 9:51-62 as "one of the super-aggressive teachings of Jesus." One individual offer to follow Jesus, to which Jesus replies that though foxes have holes and birds have nests, He has nowhere to lay His head. To another person who wants first to bury his father, Jesus replies that the dead should bury the dead. And to the third who wishes first to say goodbye to his family, Jesus declares that "if your hand is on the plow but your eyes are looking backward, then you're not fit for the Kingdom of God." Luke doesn't describe any kind of response from these three people. and Kati wonders whether those empty spaces in the narrative might be an invitation for us to pause, to examine what we wrap our lives around, to consider the freedom Jesus offers, and not to be fearful of following Him.

Luke 9:51-62

Luke 9:23

Mark Collier speaks from Luke's account of Jesus' asking His disciples that question. Mark explains that, just as for Jesus' first disciples, this question is the turning point for us too. Our answer to that question will require further response on our part. Do we believe He's the Messiah? Will we accept His gift of grace and forgiveness?And then there's His third invitation/requirement, to take on His character and live as He does: "Whoever wants to be My disciples must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow Me." Luke 9:23 This is so countercultural, so counter to our instincts of self-preservation and self-determination. Added to the mix are the spiritual realities that oppose God's Kingdom and want to hold us back from surrender and obedience. The only answer is to relinquish our power and control, by the help of the Holy Spirit, in order to enter more fully into that Abundant Life Jesus died to bring us -- for ourselves and for the whole world. This IS the Good News from our good and beautiful God, who longs to redeem and restore all things. Teaching Speaker: Mark Collier. Guest Speaker | www.thedoor.org
