Read it : Luke 1-3
Live it :
The first four verses of Luke’s gospel are written in sentences in the original Greek. They are written in a refined, academic, historian style, but the rest of Luke’s gospel doesn’t use the language of a scholar, but of the common man–the everyday language of the people. The question that arises is “Why?” This tells us that this account of Jesus has all the proper academic and historical credentials but is written for everyone to understand.
As you begin to read through today’s reading, and the entire Gospel of Luke, have this prayer in mind: “Father, this year I will pursue You and Your Word. I will make Your Word my true source, of all things. As I pursue You, I ask You to expand my understanding of You and how to follow You. Amen.”
Psalm 119:32 NLT: I will pursue Your commands, for You expand my understanding.
