 1/18/14 BIBLE PASSAGE (Luke 9:18-36)

From Luke:

Jesus Christ emphasized that his disciples must be disciplined and exercise godly virtues before they can be accepted into his kingdom of God. Jesus said, “…If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of me and my words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:23-26).

 

Lesson:

Anyone who calls himself or herself a true Christian must be disciplined and follow Jesus’ teaching that are highlighted below:

  1. A true Christian must maintain consistent daily relationship with God (If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me – Luke 9:23).
  2. A true Christian must be proud of gospel and consistently preach it to all people (Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it – Luke 9:24).
  3. A true Christian must be factual over all matters (What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? – Luke 9:25).
  4. A true Christian must identify and support bible views – even when his or her culture preaches otherwise (Whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels – Luke 9:26).

Prayer:

Dear Jesus Christ, please help me to be a true Christian who remains focus to you. Let me maintain healthy relationship with you, and let me make you happy at all times. At the end of my earthly journey, let me be accepted into your kingdom to receive imperishable crown of glory. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
