Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. – Luke 22:28
Luke 22: 28 has grabbed my heart this week. Jesus is speaking to and of His disciples here. I so want to be one that Jesus describes as continuing with Him no matter the road He leads me down. Some days the steps on the road seem very easy and other days they are a little rocky and I feel almost lost. I don’t understand where the path leads but I know it is His path. It is then I have to do as He describes here and “continue with Him.” Just continue with Him.
I shared this verse in Sunday School and then part of our Pastor’s message was along these same lines. I am so thankful for the Word of God. Here is the passage in context.
24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. 28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30 that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. – Luke 22:24-30
