Getting to Know Jesus: Luke 9


As a Christian, getting to know Jesus personally is the goal of our faith. It changes everything. And as we get to know Him more and more, we are transformed into His likeness through the Holy Spirit working within us. What a beautiful thing! Reading the Bible especially helps us to learn more about Christ and the ways in which He lived as a human here on the earth. And as we read the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), we get a glimpse of Jesus’ heart and a deeper understanding of who He is. By looking closer at one chapter of a particular gospel, my hope is that we will become more aware of His person, fall in love with His goodness, and strive to emulate who He is in every area of our lives.

Luke 9: Summary

Jesus summons the disciples to cast out demons, feeds 5000+ people, predicts His death and resurrection, is transfigured on a mountain in front of Peter, James and John, casts out demons, journeys towards Jerusalem, and talks with His disciples about what it means to follow Him.
