Discussion for Luke 4

  • Irene123
    I love Lk. 4:16-21; They are the beginning of Jesus' ministry after He had fasted AND prayed. He went into the synagogue, asked for God's Word, turned to Isa. and STOOD UP to read (our example to follow) and then sat down and gave a summary of His ministry for the next 3 1/2 yrs. These scriptures, to me, are so 'holy' and full of such graciousness, wonder. Nor do I know why I feel this way - ?
  • A disciple
    The Lord Jesus confessed that He always did those things that pleased the Father; and so for our example to follow, He set everything He did and taught, in the way we should learn how to lay our foundation in God, and build upon. If we are to realize the blessedness, and be able to teach others of the way; we must first and fundamentally be proven by the searching fire of the Word, against Satan.
  • A disciple
    Before Jesus began His public service to the people, He subjected Himself to self-denial and trial of His soul under the devil's temptations. We should learn from Him in all things, and seek the same Spirit of wisdom, and a character that responds and behaves with honor, steadfastness and virtue. When we have set ourselves to seek God and humble ourselves, we must endure faithful and true.
    Genesis 3:14
    And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

    King James Version (KJV)
  • Irene123
    To Bruce - something I forgot - No, satan has no power over GOD'S people, i.e. Job, Paul etc.; He has been given power in this earthly life over sinners - before they are saved. Yes, he is the god of this world.
