Re: Verse reading–Luke 16:19-31 (day five)
‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”
The message God has given us through the scriptures is enough for the human heart to hear and believe the saving call of our Heavenly Father. “From childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” Jesus would interact with people preaching/teaching the scriptures. Not all would “hear” or even be interested. But there were some. He would then begin a more personal interaction with them.
Great strategy for us. Speak and share the message of the scriptures (Gospel, Biblical Truths). There will be some who are interested and want to know more. Continue the conversation. Invite them to trust and follow Christ. “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Will you share so people can “hear”?
