Want to read the Bible with me today? http://www.timhowey.com/2016/01/my-bible-reading-2016.html
First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Luke 14.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — Jesus begins to make a series of tougher and tougher statements to the crowds listening to Him: about their hypocrisy regarding work on the Sabbath, about their selfishness by only helping those who might benefit them, and about the true cost of following Jesus.
- Doctrinal — God rewards people for serving or giving to those who cannot repay you: like the poor, disabled, or those with special needs (see verses 13-14). When is the last time you did this?
- Inspirational — Jesus said there’s no way I can call myself a disciple of Jesus without being willing give up (1) anything I have, (2) any relationship I have, (3) picking up the cross, and (4) being willing to give up my life. God, is this me? God, I affirm now that’s what I am willing to do. #allforyou
