Luke 6: 39– 49 Picture language

The blind leading the blind…

39And He used picture language, saying,

“Can the blind show the way to other blind people? If they tried to, don’t you think that they would both fall over? 

Hypocrites:- Taking the spec out of you brother’s eye…

40The student is not above the teacher, but you will be like your teacher when you are perfect. 41How can you point out the speck of dust in your brother’s eye but do not see the eye disease causing blindness in your own eye? 42How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take a piece of dust out of your eye’, when you cannot even see out of your own eye? Those of you who are not the real thing and are not what they pretend to be, first remove the blindness in your own eye, so that you can see clearly to remove the speck of dust in your brother’s eye.

What we say and do reveals our heart…

43A good tree does not have bad fruit, nor does a bad tree have good fruit. 44You know what a tree is like by the fruit it has. For example, you don’t go to a thorn bush to find figs, or to a bramble bush to pick grapes. 45A good man, out of the goodness that is in him, does good things, and an evil man shows the evil that is in his heart by doing evil. Whatever a man’s heart is filled with, comes out of his mouth when he speaks.

Foundations, foundations, foundations… 

46How can you call me ‘Lord’ when you do not do what I ask you to do? 47The person who comes to me to listen in order to obey, I can tell you now 48is like a house builder, who dug down deep to find the rock first; and then when the floods came and the storm beat against the house, it made no difference to the strength of the building as it was built on a solid rock. 49 However, the man who hears but doesn’t obey is like a man who builds his house just on top of the earth and this time when the water rose up, it washed it away the house and the house simply fell down”.

Prayer, Praise and Worship

“… He went up on a mountainside by himself to pray.” Matthew 14:23. 

Jesus taught His disciples what we call ‘The Lord’s Prayer’; (Luke 11).

Listen here to Albert Malotte’s ‘The Lord’s Prayer’. 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, 

thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. 

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever;- Amen.

Prayer suggestions;-

  1. The world. (ie ‘For those in authority.’)
  2. The ‘suffering church.’
  3. Your own situation. (Suggest ‘needs’ rather than ‘wants’.)

Give God time to work in us… Pray along with this hymn… These are the days of Elijah
