Scripture reading for March 3rd: Luke 1
Key Scriptures for over-comers: Luke 1:1-4 “Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.”
Luke’s gospel account was carefully investigated in order to be accurate and orderly presentation of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles written in Greek. Luke documented this account from eyewitnesses of Christ, many who were his personal friends. Luke was a Greek who was a medical doctor and close friend of the Apostle Paul, often traveling with him.
Luke, and our Lord Jesus wanted Theophilus, and us, to have this account so that we might be certain of what we were taught. Faith comes by hearing God’s word from God’s servants! Faith is transmitted by sharing God’s word in written form as well as spoken form. We can have confidence in this written record because it ties directly to those who walked with Jesus Christ while He ministered and revealed the Father’s heart to reach all nations with the gospel of the kingdom.
Observations for over-comers: Put your trust in God’s word as transmitted from the eyewitnesses and servants of the word! “Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to His people Israel just as He has promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises He gave through His servant Moses.” (1st Kings 8:56)
