16“No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. 18Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”  (Luke 8:16-18, NIV)

 

LUKE 7-8

DAY 155 JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verse For Today: Luke 8:16-18

Our journey through Luke 7-8 today, includes more than the miracles and parables; it is the revelation of a loving God, Jesus.

 

Ask God for His understanding of Luke 7-8. Read Luke 7-8. Let’s journey!

 

Luke 7 begins with a Centurion sending Pharisees to Jesus asking Jesus to heal a sick servant. The Centurion, a Gentile, believed Jesus is God but felt unworthy to be in His presence. Jesus restores life to a widow’s only son. John the Baptist, imprisoned, sent his followers to ask Jesus is He is the Messiah. The story of Jesus being anointed by a sinful person (prostitute). (Luke 7:1-50)

 

Luke 8 begins with the Parable of the Sower and is followed by the parable of a Lamp on a Stand, the source of our focus verse for today, which is followed by Jesus’ definition of who our mothers and brothers are. Jesus calms a storm on the lake. Jesus heals a demon possessed man. Jesus heals a sick woman and restores life to a dead girl. (Luke 8:1-56)

 

Our focus verses for today:

 

16“No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. 18Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”  (Luke 8:16-18, NIV)

 

This parable is about Jesus’ teachings. Like the Ten Commandments, Jesus’ teachings illuminate the ways of God and exposes sin as the eternal killer of those who chose to follow sin rather than repent of sinful living and follow Christ. Jesus’ teachings, His word, delivered to us through the Bible, is the lamp, our roadmap, to salvation. Open it’s covers to allow the Light of the World, to shine His redemption and salvation on you.
