Luke "Perfect Understanding"
The greetings/introductions to each of the New Testament books reveal who Jesus is, His leaders are, and who the church is individually-collective, and this blog series is to help us understand how that allows God’s people to receive revelation into a deeper relational existence than they had prior to knowing this amazing map of our journey that He has given to us.
The Gospel According to Luke’s greeting is, “Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.”
Luke is telling Theophilus, which means friend of God, his perfect understanding of the things that they “most surely believe.” This is sharing the love of God in truth with another man of God from a person who’s not ever met Jesus in the flesh. This is still early in the “Greetings Lead Into Completion” blog and Luke is already telling and individual about his “perfect understanding.”
God has this incredible map for His people, and He shares it with them as He knows they can receive it. Continue following the series and find out how amazing the journey can be.
Tomorrow’s blog is John’s introduction which states, “the life was the light of men.”
