Luke 10: 11 & 20
Imagine seeing great things done in Jesus name – miracles, healing the sick which is and continues to be evidence for God’s Kingdom on earth!
In to verses here; v11 & v20 I want to consider an aspect of pride in the believer and unbeliever!
Firstly, the believer:
It is so easy to get caught up in the moment and the danger is we go out again and do it in the same way. It is like our Pride or ego gives us a formula for seeing God’s kingdom come. Pride for the believer leads to formulas and set stratergies for how to do things – becoming less about Jesus and more about our fine programmes! The answer, is in v.20 to always come back to the source! Its not about me its all about Jesus!
Today, stop rushing to the latest Christian fad for your fix – instead spend time with Jesus – read scripture and think on what he would like to say to you – Let him surprise you!
Secondly, the unbeliever;
Just because you dont believe, even though you have perhaps seen the miraculous doesn’t mean its not true! v11 puts it quite harshly – you have heard, ignored yet God’s Kingdom has and will still come! Ultimately again it is pride that gets in the way saying “I don’t need God can do this on my own!”
Today, do not harden your hear as you did in times of being anti God, instead drop your pride and see what God does!
