Luke 6

Luke 6

After a brief discussion with the religious leaders, setting them straight on exactly who’s the Lord of The Sabbath - Jesus does a little healing.  Then He gets to work instructing His newly called Disciples.

There is so much here for us to apply!  The two greatest commandments which sum up the whole law are: Love God with everything you got, and Love your neighbor as yourself.  (Paraphrased).  When we consider these we can be left wondering… yeah, but what’s that look like?  And… how do we possibly do that?  Jesus lays out much of the “what and how” clearly hear.  What’s more He really sums up the “How is it possible” with His closing teaching.

“As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭6‬:‭47‬-‭48‬ ‭NIV‬‬

We tend to get caught up in trying harder, purposing to “serve” God more.  Without the Holy Spirit working through us, our efforts are exhausting and hopeless!  We can’t skip over the relationship building with Jesus and simply “try harder” to do good things.  It’s not about that!  It’s literally a process of submitting ourselves to Him, and pressing into Him through His Word taught by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us and changes us from the inside out.  As we deepen our relationship with Him, falling more in love with Him as we experience Him each day - the serving and loving comes much more naturally!  Additionally as we repent of our sin, the strength to stand against temptation is much more accessible if we are dialed in with the God who provides it through His Spirit.  James 4:7-8 It’s not a microwave instant result.  It’s a process of daily dialing in!  Growth is a process!  Once we give our lives to Jesus, growth starts with submission, obedience and discipline to Him through The Word!  He does the work, but we have to dive in!  

Are you in?  All in?  Dive in, press in today!  Get into the Word and get to know Him personally!

Love you all!
