The Gospel of Luke

August 9, 2020

Luke 10:1-16 NOTES

THE SEVENTY DISCIPLES

  1. The Good News is that the worst sinner can be completely forgiven and set free from sin, Satan, and death; and through faith in Christ, be delivered into God’s “kingdom of His beloved Son” (Col. 1:13).

 God is the “blessed and only Sovereign, the king of kings, and Lord of lords” (1 Tim. 6:15).

 Luke 10:3-6 (NASB)
3  “Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.
4  “Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way.
5  “Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’
6  “If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.

  1. Jesus wanted these disciples to learn to live as He did; totally dependent on God for their provision and protection.

 Luke 1:48 (CEV)
48  He cares for me, his humble servant. From now on, all people will say God has blessed me.

 Psalm 144:1-15 (NASB)
1 Blessed be the LORD, my rock…
2  My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer, My shield and He in whom I take refuge…
7  Stretch forth Your hand from on high; Rescue me and deliver me…
9  I will sing a new song to You, O God;
15  …How blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!

 John 20:21 (NASB)
21  So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

 Luke 10:5-16 (NASB)
5  “Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’
6  “If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.
7  “Stay in that house, eating and drinking what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house.
8  “Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you;
9  and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’
10  “But whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,
11  ‘Even the dust of your city which clings to our feet we wipe off in protest against you; yet be sure of this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’
12  “I say to you, it will be more tolerable in that day for Sodom than for that city.
13  “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had been performed in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14  “But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you.
15  “And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will be brought down to Hades!
16  “The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me.”

 John 3:16-18 (NASB)
16  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17  “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18  “He who believes in Him [Jesus Christ] is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 One of the things I’m often asked is, “Chris, if God is love, then how come He sends people to hell?”  And my response is this “God so loved the world that He sacrificed His only Son to save everyone from their sins and give them (by His grace) eternal life.  But if a person refuses to believe in God’s only way of salvation (which is Jesus) and that person wishes to stay separated from God and rule their own life, then when they leave this earth God simply grants them their wish for eternity.  And to be eternally separated from God and His love is hell.”

 Romans 8:1 (NASB)
1  Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

  1. The messenger can neither take the credit nor the blame for a person’s response to the gospel.

 Luke 10:16 (NASB)
16  “The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me.”

 

Maybe today you accepted Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior.

Or maybe you rededicated your life to walking in faith and not by sight.  Either way, I encourage you to tell someone!

Tell someone you trust about your decision.
