"Come Unto Me" - Day 6

Welcome to “Come Unto Me” as we journey together through the gospel of Luke. Let us pray: Gracious God we thank you for the Living Word that gives witness to the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. May your Holy Spirit open our souls to this Living Word. Amen

Monday, July 13 / Luke Chapter 6

Who were those teachers of the faith in your growing up? Maybe it was a Sunday School teacher, or your confirmation pastor or a bible camp counselor, or a parent or a grandparent or… Luke chapter 6 shares with us some of the earliest teachings of Jesus Christ. We hear him teaching his disciples and others about:

*Sabbath and how we are to understand the gift of the Sabbath from God.

*Caring for the sick and weather it is appropriate to do so on the Sabbath.

*What it means to be blessed in the kingdom of God if you are poor or hungry or weeping.

*Loving your enemies and doing good to those who hate you.

*Doing to others as you would have them do to you.

*Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

*Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.

*Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you.

*No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit; for each tree is known by its own fruit.

Luke ends this chapter with Jesus’ teaching about two foundations. “Why do you call me “Lord, Lord; and do not do what I tell you? I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. (Luke 6:46-47) So what kind of house are you building? Is the foundation of your faith deeply laid on the solid rock that Jesus talks about? I recall my years at Luther College in Decorah, IA when different professors in the religion department would challenge me to grow in my understanding of Jesus’ teachings. The foundation of faith that was laid by Sunday school teachers & confirmations pastors was fortified as I continued to grow in my understandings of what it meant to follow Jesus in my everyday life.

This coming Sunday – July 19th – we will hear the gospel proclaimed by students who are part of the Lutheran Campus Ministry / Common Ground in La Crosse. Pastor Ben Morris will be our guest preacher. The partnership we have with Common Ground is very important as we walk with young men and women who have so many questions about faith and life.
