Hey everybody, I’m home! It’s good to be back
This Sunday we’ll be exploring Luke 8:16-21.
It is a section that expands on what Jesus was saying in the previous verses as he told the story about soil conditions and crop yields. As he explained the purpose of using parables, he made the statement that he told truth encased in mundane stories so that “seeing they wouldn’t see, and hearing they wouldn’t understand”.
The part we’ll be reading is sort of Jesus’ qualifying of that statement. So that we wouldn’t get the wrong idea and assume Jesus was trying to hide the truth, he makes it clear that his purpose is to make the truth plain…as clear as a lamp on a stand.
But then Jesus exhorts us…to what? What does he caution us about? What key component ties these verses together, resolving in v21? What does it mean to your life, your walk with God? Any thoughts?
See yaz Sunday!
