Lesson Points

Point 1: Prayed all night before He identifies those He had called to be His Disciples. Note - he even choice Judas Iscariot knowing what he would be! Traitor!
Point 2: Great crowds gathered about Him. Over and over we are told He healed them all. There was no lack of Power, no cure that eluded Him, no demon that could deny Him.
Point 3: Blessed are ..! He gives the rules and guidelines for the future kingdom that will be manifest and those who would join themselves to Him now - these are truths to live by in the here and now.
Point 4: He teaches lessons about the heart Luke 6:42-45. Basically He reduces us all to two categories. Good tree - bad Tree. Thorns - Vines. Good man - evil man. The fruits are vastly different!
