Luke 14

Read Luke 14 – Are you Christian-lite or Christian-LIGHT? 

Jesus challenges a leader of the Pharisees, and some experts in religious law, by asking about healing on the Sabbath.  He was at a dinner party in the Pharisees house at the time and continued to teach from that setting. 

He taught on humility (:7-14), as he watched the dinner guests competing for seats of honor, like Nascar drivers for the checkered flag (Nascar isn’t specifically mentioned in Scripture, I just wanted to give a shout out to my hubby and a few other fans). 

He taught on those who accept and those who reject the invitation to the banquet in the Kingdom of God.  Here’s where lite/light comes into play – are you too busy for God to use you?  Do you rest on your laurels and not think much about your faith in the day to day?  Or are you humble, hungry and eager to serve the Lord with all that you are? 

Jesus wants to know if you’ve counted the cost and are all in (:15-33)? 

“Salt is good for seasoning.  But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again?” :34.   Salt is amazing, it seasons food; it can preserve meat; it can add nutrients to soil, but flavorless salt is useless – even for the manure pile (:35).  

Beloved, live as the salt of the earth, making people thirsty for Jesus.  Live as the light of the world, shining for Jesus.🧂💡🍽💗🍽💡🧂
