Responding to God with Faith and Love

Luke 20:41-21:4

Using David’s words from Psalm 110:1, Jesus calls all who hear to place their faith in David’s son, who is also David’s Lord. These words were offered as a correction to the thinking that the Messiah would be only an earthly king with an earthly kingdom. When the scribes remained silent in the face of Jesus’ plea, he warns the people about following their lead, and instead commends the simple and yet deep faith of a widow who gave herself completely to her Lord. This is how we are all to respond to Jesus – with lives of grateful and sacrificial discipleship.
