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.
29And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. 30For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. (Jonah went to the Ninevites and warned them that they needed to repent of their ways, and if they didn't, God would bring judgement upon them. Jesus warned people that they needed to repent, and if they didn't, God would judge them (send them to hell). 31The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. (It was much harder for the queen of the south to hear Solomon's wisdom than for the people to hear Jesus' wisdom, who is by far greater than Solomon ever was.) 32The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. (Every person in Nineveh repented after Jonah ran through the streets saying, "Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown." (Jonah 3:4). This statement alone was all it took for them to turn to God (Jonah 3:5-10). The people in Jesus' day had a lot more evidence that proved they needed God than the people of Nineveh. Indeed, Jesus was much greater than Jonah (Luke 11:32).)
Like the people in these verses, we need to repent and turn to God (become Christians). If you have never prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, please follow this website - http://chriswaug5.wix.com/howtogotoheaven
If you have prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, but your lifestyle doesn't show that you have repented (living a lifestyle similar to the one explained in chapter 39 of this book - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com), please follow this website - http://chriswaug5.wix.com/makingsure
If you have prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, but you are not sure that you are really a Christian (Hebrews 11:6, Matthew 21:18-22, 1 John 5:14, and Hebrews 11:1), you need to be sure - please follow this website - http://chriswaug5.wix.com/howtogotoheaven
