For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has lead me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Luke. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE
39And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; 40And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 43And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. (Christians should believe what the Bible says, and those wanting to become Christians should believe Jesus is the Savior of the world.)
46And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. (One of the ways someone can know if they are really a Christian is if they aren't proud of their mind, body, accomplishments, and/or their possessions, and don't think they are better and more important than others. Like Mary, they feel that they don't even deserve for God to be good to them. If you have prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, but this doesn't describe you, please follow chapter 10 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com)
49For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. (Another character trait of a Christian is that they praise the Lord.)
50And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. (Christians aren't necessarily afraid of God, but they love Him so much that they don't want to disappoint Him by sinning. If you have prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, but this doesn't describe you, please follow chapter 10 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com)
51He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. (See note for verse 48.)
52He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. (See note for verse 48.)
53He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. (This is referring to humble people again and is against the proud. In this case, it is describing those who trust their money to take care of themselves and not God. These people think they don't need God's help. If you have prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, but this describes you, please follow chapter 10 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com)
54He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
55As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
56And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
