Luke Chapter 8
Women accompany Jesus and the disciples
This is good especially in this day when people still speak about a woman’s place in the church. There were women that were following Jesus learning and eating the word. Mary Magdalene had seven demons that Jesus rebuked from her, she knew she wanted to learn more, she knew that this was a gift that she wanted to learn. We are followers and as we learn we excel and that’s what happened with the women that followed Jesus. There was a married woman Joanna who was the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, that made me think. Jesus traveled all over to speak the word of God. This had to be an assignment for Joanna to leave her husband and her household to travel with Jesus and his disciples. The word says that also a woman by the name of Susanna and many others also traveled.
Jesus tells the parable of the four soils
This is one of my favorite parables, we can learn what we need to do and how we need to behave as believers. Jesus tells us that the word of God can sow by being rooted or fall from us quickly. It all depends on how we apply it with the way we live our lives. If we apply the word of the Lord to our lives then it will become deeply rooted in us and bare fruit. “They shall know them by their fruit”. You don’t want to just hear the word of God and go on about your life. Your going to want to build into greatness, in order to do that your focus should be connecting and retaining the word to take you to the next level.
Jesus describes his true family
It took me a moment because I was like that’s rude. The word says that Jesus mother and brother s were trying to gt in but they couldn’t , the disciple said “Jesus your mother and brothers are out there and they can’t get in.” Jesus answered “My mother and my brothers are those that hear the word and do it.” I was like Jesus (Clutching my pearls) and then I remembered the parable of the four soils and then I realized that when we apply the word and sow the seed we become one tree and the harvest is for the kingdom. no one is above the other, we are all one, no special treatment.
Jesus Calms the Storm
This part tells us that Jesus and the disciples had decided to go over to the other side of the lake. While they were traveling Jesus fell asleep and a storm with heavy wind came on the lake. The disciples had gotten scared and woke Jesus up in fear that they would die. Jesus got up and told the storm to calm, and it did. The word says the disciples started to wonder what kind of man was this that he commands the wind and water. They were amazed, I would have been amazed myself to see the water call after Jesus told it to.
Jesus sends demons into a herd of pigs
In this part Jesus frees a man from several demons inside him that had him living in tombs and walking around naked. He had to live this life for a long time and when Jesus came by he called him by name and fell down in front of Jesus and asked him for help. The word goes on to tell us that Jesus sent the demons into a herd of pigs and the pigs the people that saw this was surprised and went out to witness what they saw. when they returned they found the man with Jesus clothed and in his right mind. The man that was healed wanted to follow Jesus but Jesus told him to go home and show the great things God had done for him.
My spirit is leading me to say, some of us are led to minister and some of us our led to show Gods miracles signs in wonders. I want to say that sometimes it is just a healing in your healing and your testimony that God shows someone his awesomeness.
Jesus Heals a bleeding woman
I know you hear this one a lot, the story of the woman with the issue of blood. The scripture tells us the woman spent all her money with doctors and not a one could tell here what was wrong with her. Now Jesus was coming through her town going to visit a twelve year old girl who was dying. there was a crowd of people going to see him. The place was packed, she squeezed through people. I could imagine it was squeezing on the four train ion MTA during rush hour. she had to be on her knees because the word says she touched the border of his garment . Jesus said who touched me?
Peter asked Him ” Lord how do you know someone touche you all these people are here?” and Jesus responded ” Virtue is gone out of me.” well, well, well this had me sit for a second. Virtue if we are tapped into the spirit realm we can know when a piece leaves us. as Jesus felt the sensation of a piece of his spirit leaving. You know i added this to my spiritual list of knowledge. When no one admitted to it , she finally did saying that she was healed immediately and Jesus said to her. “Be of good comfort, your faith has made you whole.”
Now servants from the house of the twelve year girl came to Jesus and said don’t trouble the master the daughter is dead. Jesus says only believe and she will be made whole . when Jesus gets to the house he tells everyone to leave the house and then tells the girl to arise. Her spirit came again and she got up he told them to feed her meat. Her parents was astonished, Jesus told them not to tell anyone what was done.
Parables are very important to our Christian walk. They are the lessons that we learn in our walk, how we should handle situations. we also see the miracles of God and a base sauce for faith. with out faith God can’t perform many miracles in our lives Matthew 13:58 when we read about miracles that were performed we are reminded that God is omnipotent.
If you want to invited God in to your life or need Jesus to stand in the gap for you. Turn your Bible to Roman 10:9 say this prayer;
Our Father in Heaven, Lord Thank you for the restoration of our relationship. Father I believe that Jesus is Lord and he died for my sins and paid the ransom for my very soul. I believe in my heart that on the third day he rose in power and defeated death for me. Lord Thank you for your sacrifice and your gift of the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the cleansing so that I can go to the father whiter than snow in Jesus name, Amen
