Luke Chapter 12 Discussion Page 8



 
  • Bill on Luke 12:45
    The reader is reminded of two important facts. First, parables are intended to be metaphorical in nature. Some Christians react rather violently to the prospect of a child of God being cut asunder or beaten with many stripes, concluding that such harsh treatment could never be the lot of a saved person. Thus, they instantly assume the unfaithful servants in the parable must be referring to those who are unsaved. As we shall see, the entire parable applies to the saved, and one of the keys to interpretation is understanding that parabolic language is figurative. Second, throughout the parable Jesus repeatedly refers to that servant and his lord master see v.42, 43, 45, 46, 47. The Lord is obviously Christ and the servant is a saved person. Unsaved people are never referred to as servants of Christ. Furthermore, the repeated use of the phrase that servant clearly indicates that Jesus is not referring to four different people one saved, three unsaved, or some other combination . Instead, this is one servant, who has four possible lifestyle choices. Cr. James Hollandsworth KingdomPreparation Reward or Loss

  • Gloria on Luke 12
    Nothing else matters,only our dependancy on GOD through Our LORD Jesus is of any value. We should be watchful waiting, for He surely is coming back to fetch us. Oh glorious day!
  • THOMAS.V.JOSE on Luke 12
    verse 4,5.Here JESUS teaches us not to be afraid of anyone who could only harm or kill your body,they can 't touch your soul,but warns that every man will die one day and 'GOD ' is the only one who could judge and punish you permanently.If you live properly you will get eternal life that is what JESUS has taught us humans by his coming to this world.

    This is how I define A BALANCE LIFE STYLE.
  • Nkosinathi Ngulube on Luke 12:36
    We ought to live in such manner resembling a burning light, knowing that we block any whiff that may turn it off.In our spiritual lives we must never relax even to give in to the sinful pleasures of the flesh, for in that moment 's separation , disaster may strike when the Lord returns only to find us embracing and fondling the whore of darkness.
  • Nkosinathi Ngulube on Luke 12:20
    All life is given of God, if you try to save it for your own selfish gain you will lose it
  • Nkosinathi Ngulube on Luke 12:18
    Surplus comes from God.The purpose of His abundant supply however, is NOT for me BUT for us.When it is for me, problems arise in the form of greed, wanton desire, selfishness, self righteousness etc.
  • Tonbra on Luke 12:31

  • MockingBird on Luke 12:24
    Ravins are a nasty bird God feeds them and He looks at us as much better than the fowls.. That is quite a Blessing there. Then God goes on to say oh ye of little faith V.28 inLuke12.God has set us in heavenly places with Him . Quite an adjustment I would say. We I have no reason to lack faith other than I am not in the Word of God as I should be. My mind is renewed daily be reading the Word of God.
  • Toni on Luke 12:24
    God will provide for those who trust and call on Him. He is rich in His mercy toward those who love and serve Him. God knows what we need, and in His time, will provide according to His riches in glory. We must be patient, have faith and never doubt God 's care for those who are serving His Son Jesus.
  • Deborah on Luke 12
    I really liked how Donny Explained scripture Luke12 49.God Bless you!
  • MockingBird on Luke 12:27
    I work at times so hard to attain and all I have to do is Trust God His Word and Rest in Confidence that he is doing what He said He would do and already has done. Much of the time all I have to do is look into His word and find out what God has already done Take it at face value and believe it and stand on it and receive it. God has already done what He said !!!!
  • Kim Mc Donald on Luke 12:31

  • Robert on Luke 12
    He is talking about believers and non believers in this verse. You probaly will never hear a preacher quote:
    51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

    52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

    53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
  • Jimmy Ray Seiber on Luke 12:51
    very good scripture gods word convicts the heart the believer has forgiveness and loves god the word was and is god the holy spirit is our comforter as children of god we want to please god that is what seperates believers from unbelievers farther,son,holyspirit is all one
  • Nomsa on Luke 12:5
    My understanding of this word is to always remember who God is in our lives.The Creatorof Heaven and Earth,the Alpha and Omega,the I am that I am,our Healer,Deliverer and His name is above all names the wise fear Him only fools doesn.t
