Discussion for Luke 17

  • BSP
    Verse 6~True faith can result in miracles. Having strong faith in Jesus Christ and Jehovah God can help us to overcome any obstacle.
  • BSP
    Verses 20,21~Jesus indicated that it would take discernment to recognize the signs of the last days and perceive where we are in the stream of time.
  • A disciple
    "And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger." The Lord knows when the crowds are thronging and pressing at Him, and when one touches Him in faith that virtue goes out from Him. Jesus also is aware of how many take His healing and salvation and go their way NOT returning to give God glory.
  • A disciple
    "Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I expect not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do." When we have been explicitly told what we are to believe and do, and how to think of ourselves, how then is obedience something special or extra?
  • A disciple
    "Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!" Keeping with the context and continuance of the previous chapters, it was the covetous and hostile disobedient rich who derided the Lord and let Lazarus perish with poverty and hunger right at their own front gate. This kind treat Christians the same way, without any concern.
  • Eutychus
    "And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith." A thing for which we all seek. Unfortunately, the people we ask to help the Lord increase our faith, are usually folks who are PAID to teach us how to have faith...they themselves not having faith enough to live as the Bible says, "Take no thought for the morrow, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, or wherewith shall ye be clothed."
