Day 161: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: Luke 9:3-4; 10:2-4
Ask God for His understanding of Luke 9-10. Read Luke 9-10. Let’s journey!
Commentary: Jesus sends out His 12 disciples, with instructions to rely upon the Lord for their needs and to be content with what He provides. During their journey, the disciples experienced a great amount of success, which they quickly forgot when Jesus asked them to feed the 5,000. Peter, James, and John were witnesses to Jesus’ meeting with Moses and Elijah, although they failed to understand the significance of the event, just as all the disciples failed to understand the true purpose of the Messiah and His forthcoming death. Through their debate over who was the greatest disciple, they also showed a lack of understanding of Jesus’ message of servitude. The beginning of chapter 10 echoes the beginning of chapter 9, with the sending out of even more disciples – 72 this time – with the same instructions to rely upon the Lord.
Focus Verses: Luke 9:3-4; 10:2-4 – Twice we see Jesus instructing His disciples to rely upon the Lord to provide. Are we not all disciples of Christ? This advice also applies to us! Re-read the passages, this time addressing it to yourself. How can you follow Jesus’ words?
