Meditation | Luke 18:29-30

Written By Holy Scripture

Scripture Memorization

Take time today to memorize the promise of self-denial from Jesus in Luke 18:29-30. One of the best ways to meditate on God’s word is to chew on it, and one of the best ways to chew on it is to hide it in your heart. Let the concepts, ideas, and images marinate in your soul as you internalize the Word.

 

“And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life.”

– Luke 18:29-30

    Is there a reason we’re stopping halfway through the sentence? Verse 30 continues, “who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.” It’s an easier chunk for memorization to stop in Verse 29, but we lose the context of what Jesus is saying. The rich young ruler couldn’t see past the immediate sacrifice and lost the eternal blessing.

    I’m really enjoying the daily steps. Thanks for offering this, Christ Community!

      You are correct, that was a bit odd! We have added the last half of that sentence.

    Luke 18:30 is the second part of the sentence and completes the thought and is where the promise is, did you intend for us to memorize both?

    29 And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, 30 who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life.”

      Yes. Let’s do BOTH! We can never memorize too much scripture, can we? We have added it and will update the graphics as well.

    Is there a reason verse 30 isn’t included in this? Without the complete sentence of this scripture quote, it completely changes the meaning of the passage. This seems a bit worrisome if someone is using this tool and new to the Bible/their faith. I get the focus on self denial but the above reads that “something is impossible” where the whole sentence in the Bible reads “something that seems wrong/hard/scary by earthly thinking is externally rewarded”.
