Practice following Jesus. His work will flourish
2Samuel 1-3 / Luke 13-14

Tutorial for first-timers


OT

3:1 That was the beginning of a long war between those who had been loyal to Saul and those who were loyal to David. As time passed David became stronger and stronger, while Saul’s dynasty became weaker and weaker.

NT

14:25-27 Great crowds were following Jesus. He turned around and said to them, “If you want to be my follower you must love me more than your own father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters–yes, more than your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. And you cannot be my disciple if you do not carry your own cross and follow me.

Perspective

Recognize God’s provision – this is perspective
Self-interest obliterates our view of anything beyond our own deficiencies, which then become our boundaries of capacity
So obey, then ask God, with His capacities in mind
