Thoughts from Luke 24 (Believe with our heart not just our head)

Even though the disciples had been with Jesus for some years, even though they had heard many times that he would rise from the dead, when it actually happened, they found it hard to believe. We can be like that

Thoughts from Luke 23 (The truth challenges and convicts)

Although totally innocent, Jesus had enemies. His only crime was to speak the truth and, as now, the truth challenges and convicts. And when people are challenged and convicted, they respond. Although some may react in a positive way that

Thoughts from Luke 22 (Don’t become a Judas)

Thoughts from Luke 21 (The end is nigh)

There has always been a fascination regarding the end of the world, it’s something that many people believe will happen one day. And the Bible certainly speaks that way. The Bible doesn’t give a day or a time, but what

Thoughts from Luke 20 (Think before you reply)

The religious people were constantly trying to catch Jesus out. Often they did this by asking ‘loaded’ questions, designed in such a way that whatever answer he gave, he would be ‘wrong’. And people still do the same today, which

Thoughts from Luke 19 (Putting wrongs right)

Zacchaeus offered to pay back what he had stolen, with extra on top. Restitution is an indicator that someone had truly undergone a change of heart. It’s easier to say I’m sorry’ and leave it at that. But true sorrow

Thoughts from Luke 18 (Don’t set yourself up for a fall)

The moment we start to think we’re something special, we begin to walk a path that will end up in our downfall. Taking the moral high ground means we’re often setting ourselves up for a fall. And the higher we

Thoughts from Luke 17 (Don’t be motivated by appreciation)

Jesus healed ten lepers but only one returned to say thank you. Life can be like that sometimes, you can do things for people and they never respond with a word of appreciation. That’s why we have to focus on

Thoughts from Luke 16 (Live wisely, but live godly)

You have to be switched on to survive in today’s world. Scams, frauds and dodgy characters abound. Naivety will be punished, but at the same time becoming like the world around isn’t the answer. We have to become streetwise, but

Thoughts from Luke 15 (Restoring broken relationships)

The story of the prodigal son is well-known. But behind that story is a message of hope, a message of reconciliation. And that’s not just a parable, that’s for real life. If there is a relationship division, make a move
