Luke 22:66-71

Luk 22:66 When day came, the group of the elders of the people gathered together, both chief priests and scribes. And they led him away to their council, and they said,
Luk 22:67 “If you are the Christ, tell us.” But he said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe,
Luk 22:68 and if I ask you, you will not respond.
Luk 22:69 But starting now, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.”
Luk 22:70 Then they all asked, “Are you the Son of God, then?” And he said to them, “You say that I am.”
Luk 22:71 Then they said, “What further testimony do we need? We have heard it ourselves from his own lips.”

what condemned a generation

There were four things that condemned Christ’s generation, and we can see them all in this text:

  1. They sat in judgment of Christ, rather than subject themselves to his judgment.
  2. They demanded proof of Jesus’ identity, but were not prepared to consider that proof.
  3. They refused to respond to the call to believe in Jesus
  4. They looked for an excuse not to believe, rather than a reason to believe.

Our generation is doing the same thing.

LORD, bring revival to our generation, before it is too late.
