Application of Luke



        1) Have you been slow of heart to believe all that Moses and the prophets wrote about Jesus Christ? Do you see Jesus as             the Son of Man, the fulfillment of the prophecy, the Christ, the Son of God? Have you bowed to Him as Lord of your life?

        2) Jesus reached out to the hurting, the sinners, and the outcasts. He visited in their homes. He was available and                        accessible. What about you? Do you have compassion on these people? Are you wasting your life on self or are you                investing in others? What did you learn from watching Christ's response to others that you can apply to your life?

        3) If Jesus needed to withdraw often to a lonely place to pray, what about you? Is prayer a high priority in your life? Do you             understand and incorporate the principles of prayer that Jesus taught in the Gospel of Luke?
