The Gospel According To Luke

Discerning The Time

Luke 12:54-59 — “Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?” What time are we living in right now? What should we as Christians be concentrating on? How should we think about world events and Bible prophecy? There…

Gospel Fire

Luke 12:49-53 — “I am come to send fire on the earth…” Many people today have a superficial and comfortable idea of who Jesus was and what He taught.

Servants & Kings

Luke 12:33-34 — “Sell that ye have, and give alms…” Some of the things that Jesus said about giving can make us feel a bit uncomfortable. In this particular verse, was He actually telling His disciples to sell their possessions and give the money to the poor? How do these words apply to us today?…

“Fear Not, Little Flock”

Luke 12:32 — “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Fear is something we all have to deal with at one time or another. For some of us, fear is an ongoing struggle — we wake up with it in the morning, walk around with it…

Distinctly Different

Luke 12:29-31 — “And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after…” In these verses we learn that Jesus’ disciples are to have a different attitude towards the things of this world. What…

Anxiety and its Cures

Luke 12:22-28 — “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on…” As we continue our study through The Gospel of Luke we come to a subject that touches all of us. At one time or another we have all have…

The Insidious Sin of Covetousness

Luke 12:13-21 — “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” These words came in reply to a man who asked Jesus to intervene in a dispute with his brother over an inheritance, and they were followed by the Parable of the Rich…

How Wonderful He Is

Luke 12:10-12 — “Take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: for the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.” In this part of Luke’s Gospel, Jesus warns against blaspheming the Holy Spirit and He talks about the grace that the…
