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.
33Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
If you get a paycheck, you obviously need to buy food, health insurance, pay taxes every year (based on your income), pay water bills etc., and save money for the future (Proverbs 21:20; 13:22; 13:11). Other than those types of things, God wants you to be free to give to Him.
(If you have prayed or made a decision to trust Jesus’ death on the cross and His shed blood to erase your sins and let you into Heaven, but you spend more of that money that is left over on things for pleasure and entertainment instead of things for helping others and for the Lord's purposes, your heart belongs to pleasure and entertainment. So, please follow this website - http://chriswaug5.wix.com/makingsure If you lose a lot of money and are depressed for a long time, then that isn’t a good sign either.) It is very important to be satisfied and happy with the things you have and not seek to have better and more expensive things, such as a new home, car, TV, cell phone etc. (1 Timothy 6:8). When you can say, “The Lord has blessed me with material things for me to enjoy, and there isn’t anything else I need, except to keep paying my bills. Therefore, I am “able and free” to give money to evangelistic organizations, charities, and other things for the Lord’s purposes! And it makes me very happy to know that when I do this, I won’t only help people who are physically suffering and those who are not Christians receive salvation, I will receive treasures in Heaven that are perfect and will never become damaged or need to be replaced (Matthew 6:19-21)!
