Text: Luke 8: 1-56.
This passage continues with the themes of the Person of Jesus Christ and the response of faith that Jesus is seeking, that is, a faith built on a correct understanding of Jesus Christ in contrast to the response of rejection that has predominated the Gospel story of Luke so far. As you study this text, take note of the reasons Jesus gives His hearers; why people respond to God’s revelation and to His Son, Jesus Christ.
Look at the parable of the sower and Jesus’ explanation of it in vv. 4-8, 11-15.
What is involved in responding correctly to Jesus according to vv. 15 & 21?
What privileges are given to those who respond correctly?
Lord, give me the grace to know You more than before, in Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
