MAY 20 – WHAT?

05/20 Luke 22:49-51
When the other disciples saw what was about to happen, they exclaimed, “Lord, should we fight? We brought the swords!” 50 And one of them slashed at the high priest’s servant and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus said, “Don’t resist anymore.” And he touched the place where the man’s ear had been and healed him.
What are we to do when we face opposition? It all depends on what the Lord has us doing. Sometimes we do not oppose others. Sometimes we do oppose those that are pushing against the cause of Christ. The key to what we do is staying close to Jesus and asking Him what we are to do. He will lead us step by step as we surrender to serving Him. He is worthy of our total service and sacrifice. Serve the Lord with gladness for He is Lord of all things.
