Discussion for Luke 12

  • John madden for verse 31
    Seek his kingdom put it first..he is preparing us for his kingdom.and he has prepared it for us
  • Yes this is indeed the truth the disciples forsook all, Jesus forsook all, Paul forsook all, this is a direct command and is re affrimed in some passages luke 14 any one who does not forsake all thst he has cannot be my disciple, which is scary since we are all called to be disciples but who actually will become one few to disobey this is to disobey Jesus many are called few are chosen. Not all who say unto me Lord Lord shall enter the Kingdom but those who do the will of the Father this is part of the will. There will be a separation of sheep and goats, and there should great wondrous power in the heavens above and the earth below anything less i just don't see the point, The greatest time on earth becomes the weakest time on earth, anyone who believes in Jesus the word of GOD shall do the same works of the Son of God and greater works because Jesus has gone to the Father, This is the will of God to rely on him totally to pick up your cross be prepared to die and follow Jesus to Calvary anything less is to me boring. He who endures to the end shall be SAVED.
  • Malok deng for verse 8
    God want us to be a witness to Him every day. Everywhere every time by His grace I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is a power of God unto salvation.
  • Lorraine Zwahlen for verse 20
    All of this tells us something basic about the interdependence of men and nation.Whether we realize it or not,each of us is eternally "in the red".We are everlasting debtors to known and unknown men and women.
  • Apostle Frances Tates for verse 48
    We are all sent to this earth with purpose no escaping, no excuse for not surrendering. We were bought with the price of purified blood, pure righteousness. Disobedience is a sin
  • I too am assured of his love and care he has been a strong tower in my troubled, insufficient life, and has brought me through.
