Blessed Rather Are Those

As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.”   He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”

Luke 11:27-28

ASK HIM!

All you have to do is ASK. No pomp and circumstance is needed:

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Luke 11:13

The Word of the LORD

For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.

Tell Me Something Good

Jesus also said we would know a tree by its fruit. It's Friday. Tell me something GOOD:

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. ~Jesus

Attention Hypocrites

Jesus was not a fan of hypocrites:

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

Luke 6:41

Love Your Enemies

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,  bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. ~Jesus

When people hate you because of Jesus

Blessed are you when people hate you,    when they exclude you and insult you    and reject your name as evil,    because of the Son of Man.

Luke 6:22

Notable Quote

“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.  I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” ~Jesus

Jesus Saw Their FAITH

Jesus saw their FAITH and their sins were forgiven. Seems pretty simple but people make this concept difficult:

When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” Luke 5:20

Perfect Love and Fear

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
