April 13, 2022: Day 79 – Luke 7-12April 13, 2022
This was a super long reading and there are a lot of events in Jesus’ life that we could point to which catch our attention. Let’s try to underline the highlights. Jesus goes on a tear and heals a whole bunch of people from the centurion’s servant to the widow’s son and there are more in the other chapters that read including the demon possessed man and the raising of the dead girl and the sick woman with the flow of blood.
But he also shows he has power over nature by calming the storm. We see the story of the transfiguration and Jesus sending out the 72 and of course our favorite, the parable of the good Samaritan. Chapter 12 contains many different warnings about the end times, but the final point is: Jesus is coming, but we just don’t know when. It will be like a thief in the night and when we least expect it. That’s a good thing to remember.
