Luke Chapter 10

Luke 10

1After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.

2Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

3Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

4Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

5And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

6And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

7And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

8And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:

9And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

10But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,

11Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

12But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

13Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

14But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.

15And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

21In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

22All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

23And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

24For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

25And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

27And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

28And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

29But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

30And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

36Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

37And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

38Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

39And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

40But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

41And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

  1. v 37 And he said,He that shewed on him, Then said,
    Jesus unto him, Go and do thou likewise.

    Another beautiful love story. Obeying the greatest
    commandment . The law of love.
    The Samaritan acts toward the stranger.
    To be a real neighbor and gives help wherever it is needed. Showing the love for GOD, neighbor and himself.
    Jesus said, ” To love our enemies. Those who hurt and use you. To go the second mile and give your cloak also.
    GOD himself will reward your labor of love.

    He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord:
    And that which he hath given will He pay him again.

  3. 17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

    We must remember the power that God has given us. The devil has no choice but to obey the Word of God. So, next time he tries to oppose you, use the power that your father has given you.

  4. 42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    Sitting at the feet of Jesus — oh what a daily privilege we have to learn Him, to know Him. This is where our strength is renewed, our mind is renewed, we are given direction for our lives. Lord, help me to daily sit at your feet.

  5. ONE NEEDFUL THING

    42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    Jesus identified 1 needful thing and it is not the thing that mist of us place a priority on; not to say that other things are not necessary.

    Our checkbooks and calendars (day-planners) reveal what we place importance on. What we invest in the most obviously reveals what we feel is most needful. We are challenged to examine ourselves to see if our needful activities agrees with HIS needful activities; thereby we choose the good part that will NOT be taken away.

    LISTEN to JESUS!

    39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

    Do not waste time in prayer telling God what you need; he already knows. With thanksgiving let your requests be made known to GOD. Then sit at HIS feet and listen for the answers.

    BE Church
    HEAR HIS WORD

  6. 25-37
    Questioned by an expert in old testament law Jesus tells the story of the good samaritan to show the full extent of the laws demands on the believer. For the love for God and neighbor require unlimited commitment to meeting needs.

  7. V.21-24 In that hour Jesus REJOICED in spirit,and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed unto babes: even so,Father; for it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father,and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. And he turned him unto his disciples and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them;and hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. I loved how it said that Jesus rejoiced in spirit, if we come to Jesus as babes we come to him with Faith, it’s his desire that we know him, to have relationship with him. I will never forget the time the Lord revealed the Oneness of God back in the day,I prayed before reading his word, within minutes he had opened my understanding, and I understood the Oneness of God!!! As Scripture says that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. The One, the Saviour, the Messiah, the Christ!! What an honor it is to see, speak, and to know the One true God!!

  8. 38Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
    39And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.40But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.41And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    One thing that we as an active church need to remember is that we need the word. As Martha did we work as hard as we can to prepare for Jesus to speak and when it comes time for Him to speak we are “to busy” to hear. As Mary did we need to listen when Jesus is talking. One of my friends said it this way,” It’s like the radio. It’s always on and Jesus is always talking,and it will depend if you’re tuned to the station HIs talking on.” As long as we are on the same station we can hear Him speaking. Fasting, Reading ,and Prayer helps in this.

    41And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

    42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    The good part shall not be taken away, but we do choose to sit and stay at the feet of Jesus. I choose to worship at his feet.

  10. I have no Internet access and I am trying to post from an iPad. I posted under my husbands name and only intended to copy verses 40-42. I apologize.

  11. Martha felt that she was by herself doing the work while her sister was ministered to. How many times in ministry do we feel that we are doing it by ourselves while others are being ministered to. We ask why do I have to do this, it feels like I’m doing everything, and I never get the time to just relax and be ministered too. The Martha spirit, if we allow it to take hold, makes us bitter to the ministry. But thank god, Martha had the wisdom to talk to Jesus about how she was feeling.

  12. Vs. 17-20 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

    You know – really we are no different than the disciples. When God uses us to pray over someone for healing, diliverance, strength, direction, or whatever they are in need of, and they get that answer. We are excited over the fact that God used us. The WORD tells us that Jesus gave us power to Tread Upon and Over ALL the power of the enemy. Yet, the greatest thing we need to rejoice over isn’t that fact that God used us, but that our names are written in the Lambs Book of Life. Our Names Are Written In Heaven ! HALLELUJAH !!

  13. Luke 10:25-27

    25 And then a certain lawyer arose to try (test, tempt) Him, saying, Teacher, what am I to do to inherit everlasting life [that is, to partake of eternal salvation in the Messiah’s kingdom]?

    26 Jesus said to him, What is written in the Law? How do you read it?

    27 And he replied, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself. [
    AMP

    Here we see the full extent of what the Father desires for his children. When asking about who his neighhbor is, Jesus then tells of the good samaritan.

    However, the focus of this should have not been on how to be a good neighbor, but rather on how can I better love the Lord with all my body, soul, and spirit.

    Making this right will then give birth to loving others. His compassion will flow through us in a way that we have not began to dream of, souls will be won to the kingdom, and our churches will not be able to contain the harvest.

    Strive for relationship and you will experience all you need, and all your desires will be his.

    “But seek ye FIRST, THE KINGDOM of GOD and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all these things SHALL be added unto you. Matthew 6:33”

  14. 40But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
    41And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
    42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

    We must make more time for Jesus. One thing is needful…..the good part.

  15. 27 The man replied, “The Scriptures say, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind.’ They also say, ‘Love your neighbors as much as you love yourself.’ ”

    28 Jesus said, “You have given the right answer. If you do this, you will have eternal life.”

    2Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

    5And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

    6And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

    Just a few scriptures that really stood out to me. 🙂

  16. 29But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

    The lawyer seems to be looking for an easier route. He seems to be Insinuating that not everybody is considered to be your neighbor. I dont want to be looking for the easiest way or just wanting to “get by”. I want to desire to do all that He has for me to do.

  17. V 41 “Martha, Martha, thou are careful and troubled about many things..”
    LB “But the Lord said to her, “Martha, dear friend, you are so upset over all these details”
    How often the world and its cares take us away from our “isolated time” with the Lord. And then we look at others whose relationship with the Lord is so personal and we wonder why we don’t enjoy that closeness. The answer lies within ourselves. I desire the “needful” thing.

  18. The word “perspective” comes to mind when considering this chapter. A point of interest: V19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

    Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

    It’s interesting to see how these two verses go hand in hand yet our minds would try to use the first as a safety net against all pain and loss and wounds, and then turn around to use the second as a comfort when that pain and loss and wounds come. God is not contradicting Himself here, though our human thinking could lead us to believe so.

    Isaiah 55:9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

    We may not understand when “hurt” comes knocking on our door, and sometimes we may never understand why certain circumstances happen, yet we can rest safely in hope and faith that regardless of how it may seem, God is working it for our good.

    To take a simple example from the secular that helps illustrate this, in some combat type video games there will be “bonus” type helps such as armor, etc. that when equipped and activated would temporary make the attacks of an opponent not leave any damage. Sure they may still take their best shot at you and it may knock you back as you still feel the physical impact of the force of the attack… but it doesn’t drain your health and gives you the advantage of taking *your* best shot at them or running right past them if they are guarding/blocking something you need to reach. Why can you run straight into the heat of a normally life-threatening battle without any reservations? Because the enemy can do their very best to take you out but as long as you have that supernatural type of covering, you’ve really got nothing left to truly lose and everything to gain.

    Philippians 3:7-14 “7 I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. 8 Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ 9 and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith. 10 I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, 11 so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!

    12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”

    If God be for us, who can be against us? Cast off the weights and sins that would trip us up, put away the works of the flesh, put on the Lord Jesus Christ and be equipped with the full armor of God. The world is full of sin and death, God is full of righteousness and life; lose the world with it’s sin and death, gain Jesus with His righteousness and life. What do we really have left to lose when we have everything to gain in Christ?

  19. Verse 16 in the Message Version reads….”The one who listens to you, listens to me. The one who rejects you, rejects me. And rejecting me is the same as rejecting God, who sent me.”

    The end of verse 20 reads….”All the same, the great triumph is not in your authority over evil, but in God’s authority over you and presence with you. Not what you do for God but what God does for you—that’s the agenda for rejoicing.”

    Verse 42 reads….”One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it’s the main course, and won’t be taken from her.”

    Its important to “hear” from God and receive his direction. Sometimes we want to direct the path in which we want to take; when we really just need to get out of the way and let God be God. Don’t get side tracked by all the choices…..wait for the main course!

  20. Vs 20 Jesus tells us that more important than works, is salvation. Be church and bring the message of salvation to the world.

  21. 17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

    18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

    We always need to remember to give God all the glory for everything He does!

  22. This chapter teaches many things including how to Be-Church. When Jesus was tempted by the lawyer, he (God) simply gave him (lawyer) a parable, which if we follow we will inherit eternal life. All of us our Christ’s children therefore all are welcome to the beautiful gift of the Holy Ghost, we must simply do our part and Be-Church to all, God is the judge. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  23. Refering back to verses 38-42, too many of us try and be Martha. We are running around doing what we feel is important and needed but if we would just sit and listen to God, as Mary did, we will find what is really important to God and find the better part that no one can take away from us.
