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.
1Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. 4And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. 5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. (A similar section of verses is found in Mark 6:7-11. Mark 6:11 is almost identical to Luke 9:5, but it adds, "Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city." This addition helps us better understand Luke 5:6. Sodom and Gomorrha were wicked cities that God destroyed by raining brimstone and fire out of heaven upon them (Genesis 19:24). Unlike these people, the people in Jesus' day and our day and time have had a lot of proof that Jesus is the Way to heaven and that we must repent of our sins and accept Him as our Savior. People who haven't had as much proof as we have had will go to hell if they aren't under the age of accountability (people who are too young to understand right from wrong and people who are born with mental conditions that disable them from being able to understand (2 Samuel 12:21-23)) or haven't became Christians, but their punishment in hell won't be as severe as people who have had a lot of proof that Jesus is the Way to heaven and that they must repent of their sins and accept Him as their Savior but didn't repent and have faith in Christ. Luke 12:47-48 supports this, "47And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. To who much is given, much will be required." 6And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.
