Scripture: Luke 10

Action is important. The 72 were sent out on mission…going and working. The good Samaritan is a parable that praises the one who shows love through service. The Lord praises acts of mercy and kindness.

But when action is accompanied by anxiety and worry about temporal things it may be time to slow down and take a seat at the feet of Jesus.

Remember who you’re working for and remember the end goal. Let love and mercy flow from a pure, undistracted, heart.

Journal: Write a prayer asking for Jesus to help you keep first things first.

Move: Rest, recover, or repeat.

Scripture: Luke 9

There’s a lot in this chapter, but what I want to focus on is the different reactions to Jesus:

  • The disciples: following and obeying Jesus.
  • Herod: perplexed by Him.
  • Crowds: following Him, accepting healing and food from Him, but unsure of Him:

“Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.”

  • Peter: sure of Him:

“But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”

How do you respond to Jesus? How should you respond?

There’s a right answer:

It’s a matter of life and death:

(No response is still a response.)

Journal: Write a prayer confessing Jesus as the Son of God and committing to follow Him.

Scripture: Luke 8

Jesus was in the boat with His disciples. This was His inner circle.

His inner circle wasn’t necessarily His family or neighbors. His inner circle was this chosen twelve, and beyond this was His “family”:

21 But he answered them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.”

If you’re a hearer and a doer of the word of God today you are in the family of God. If you’re a follower of Jesus today you are in His inner circle.

So where is your faith?

When you feel fear and doubt creep in imagine Jesus asking you this. If you see the people in your inner circle slipping into fear and doubt ask them, “Where is your faith?” If you don’t have anyone in your life who will ask you this, take the initiative and form meaningful relationships. Form your own inner circle of faith and accountability.

Let’s challenge each other to stay strong in faith.

Journal: Write a prayer for the faith of your inner circle. If you don’t have a faith family ask the Lord to lead you to these relationships.
