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
My copy and paste feature doesn't keep the words that are supposed to be italicized, so instead of me doing it manually, refer to a Bible to see which words are italicized.
38Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying, 39Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.
Legion literally wanted to leave everything behind and follow Jesus by becoming homeless and going town to town in order to witness, preach, teach, and perform miracles. Although, God hasn’t called every Christian to do those things. Luke 8:38-39 proves this.
God had planned for Legion to witness to the people who saw him in the horrible condition he used to be in, so God would be glorified and people would come to Christ. Therefore, this proves that God hasn’t planned for everyone to go town to town in order to preach and teach like Jesus did. Ephesians 4:11 also proves this, and it says, “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;” Clearly, God has called many people to be pastors and have families (for example) in our day and time, and they aren’t able to become homeless and go town to town and witness, preach, teach, and perform miracles like Jesus did. Many pastors today do follow (imitate and obey) Jesus and prove to be Christians, even though they don’t go town to town and teach and perform miracles. Therefore, discipleship and following Jesus shouldn’t be defined as, “becoming homeless and going town to town in order to witness, preach, teach, and perform miracles.” A more practical example of what it means to follow Jesus is explained in chapter 39 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com
