Luke 9:49-56 (Thursday)

49

Now John answered and said, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow with us."

50

But Jesus said to him, "Do not forbid him, for he who is not against us is on our side."

51

Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,

52

and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him.

53

But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem.

54

And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?"

55

But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.

56

For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them. And they went to another village.
