Summary: Friend, a person with a real experience with God and who has a revelation of God brings it out in his preaching, teaching and in whatever he does, even a drawing sketch can reveal the beauty of the Lord.
Luke 1:3” ….it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account….”
Doctor Luke, the writer of the Gospel of Luke in New Testament is certainly blessed with an anointing to pen; the twenty four chapters take you through many healings performed by Jesus and then the writer comes to a beautiful finale of Jesus being taken up to heaven. Stay with me, to hear more….
Friend, a person with a real experience with God and who has a revelation of God brings it out in his preaching, teaching and in whatever he does, even a drawing sketch can reveal the beauty of the Lord. Luke starts with the bang claiming in the opening lines of the first chapter of Luke: 1:3”..it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account..” There you are! Luke had a ‘perfect understanding’ of everything from the beginning and thus he was able to write a beautiful account of the earthly ministry of Jesus. Was Luke with Jesus during His ministry on earth? No. Was Luke one of the disciples of Jesus? No. Then, how was he able to elaborately and accurately explain everything? It was revelation from the Holy Spirit!
We also learn that Luke was the traveling companion of Apostle Paul and Luke also wrote the book of Acts which is nothing but ‘pure fire.’ When you are with ‘fire’, you get engulfed in the heat as well. Are you listening? Who you spend your time with is very important! Are you there? Paul mentions about Luke as ‘the beloved physician’ (Colossians 4:14) Most of the people who spent time with me during the time I worked in the bank got saved and we were ‘sealed’ as crazy and weird because we were seen praying and reading the Bible in the midst of people who were smoking, gossiping and guffawing away to glory. You should be different! While the other doctors were making money and building hospitals, Luke was busy traveling with Apostle Paul and building the Kingdom of God. How about you friend? What is your contribution towards the Kingdom of God? The book of Acts oozes with anointing because the author was saturated with God. If the book of Acts has really, really touched you, then you would be sharing Jesus in some way with this lost world - we would never be placid spectators.
One particular evening there was a tremendous urge…no..no…I would say fire on the inside of me to go for outreach ministry; but where? I did not have an immediate answer. But I just wrapped up few Bibles, gospel handbills, took my scooter and went into the market place; mind you it was evening time. I got near the parking space to park my scooter where I found a middle aged woman security with uniform grumpily giving instructions to the people since it was busy time. I hurriedly went close to her and asked her, ‘do you know Jesus?’ She was stunned. The tension on her face was replaced with joy. She said: ”I have written to many ministries and I have been trying to get a Bible for myself for the last 10 years.” I said, ‘here, you can have one and gave it to her.’ Next, I went to a small textile shop which was owned by a muslim man, I stood in the center of the shop and in a loud voice shared the miracle that I received from Jesus and also His love and left that place, this was a busy bazaar in the peak of sales time in the evening. I knew why Jesus stirred my heart that day!
