Read Luke 12:49-56


Read Luke 12:49-56

49 “I came to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 I have a baptism to receive, and how distressed I am until it is over! 51 Do you suppose that I came to bring peace to the world? No, not peace, but division. 52 From now on a family of five will be divided, three against two and two against three. 53 Fathers will be against their sons, and sons against their fathers; mothers will be against their daughters, and daughters against their mothers; mothers-in-law will be against their daughters-in-law, and daughters-in-law against their mothers-in-law.”

54 Jesus said also to the people, “When you see a cloud coming up in the west, at once you say that it is going to rain—and it does. 55 And when you feel the south wind blowing, you say that it is going to get hot—and it does. 56 Hypocrites! You can look at the earth and the sky and predict the weather; why, then, don't you know the meaning of this present time?

We have heard Jesus message; we have heard of his deeds - but it takes us so long to respond.  It's like checking the weather to find out that it will rain but not bothering to take an umbrella.


Lord I've heard your teaching but failed to respond to it.  By the power of your Holy Spirit give me the strength and the will to live out my faith.
