be quick to believe

Luke 24


And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

That's what we think, isn't it? That Jesus is only a stranger to the things that are going on now-a-days. But we shouldn't be sad in our communications or troubled. We should believe all of the things that are written in the Bible, and believe in Christ. Even suffering ought to happen, for the Lord's purposes.

Then we should be continually worshiping, praising, and blessing Him, and having great joy.


  1. Not trying to question or contradict you here, this is a sincere question I have had on my mind for a few days: where is the line, or the balance, between this joyful, worshipful faith, and sober wisdom? It seems like there are just as many verses that talk about how the wise man is constantly in misery, and also about redeeming the time, because the days are evil, as there are about rejoicing and casting away cares and fears. When do we do which? Or can we do both at once? How?


  2. It was the wrong time to be miserable: They were (quite literally), walking with the Lord. He had just risen from the dead. We should be sober and serious about repenting from our own failures, but when we're walking with him, we need to not be sad thinking that He has failed, because of unpleasant situations.

    Often I get caught up with my sadness about the way situations appear, but the Lord is doing great things that are about to be revealed.

    They didn't have the worship, praise, blessing, and joy, until after it was revealed; and we probably won't either. But we need to be walking with the Lord. When we trust the Lord by believing the things that are written in the Scriptures, it will help us not be carried away with misery about the way our situation looks.

  3. 2 Corinthians 7, especially v10.
