Luke 8:1-3

Luk 8:1 Next, he went on through towns and villages, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The twelve accompanied him,
Luk 8:2 and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and disabilities: Mary (called Magdalene), from whom seven demons had gone out,
Luk 8:3 and Joanna the wife of Cuza (Herod’s household manager), Susanna, and many others who supported them out of their own resources.

commitment and its causes

This passage lists three groups of people who were committed to Christ, and accompanied him on his preaching tours. First, there were the twelve, called and being trained to assist in sharing the word. Secondly, there were the demonstrators, who showed the people how Christ changed their lives, setting them free from bondage and brokenness. Thirdly, there were the supporters, people of influence and wealth, who used their resources to meet the needs of the entire team.

Only you can tell your story. Only you know the reason you are drawn to be in Christ. You have a cause for your commitment. Other believers need you.

LORD, thank you for bringing us all to commit to you.
