We open our Bibles to the seventeenth chapter of the gospel of Luke...Luke chapter 17. We are working our way through Luke, this is year 11 and we are in chapter 17 and this is a wonderful thing. It's so hard to move any more speedily because the depth and the richness of God's truth captivates our heart and holds us still until we have imbibed all the richness that we can find in these texts.

But we're looking at the opening ten verses of chapter 17 and we have spent a couple of weeks already looking at it and we'll finish it up this morning. Let me read these ten verses to you, Luke chapter 17 verses 1 through 10. "And He said to His disciples, 'It is inevitable that stumbling blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come. It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, then that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble. Be on your guard. If your brother sins, rebuke him. And if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times a day and returns to you seven times saying, I repent, forgive him.' And the Apostles said to the Lord, 'Increase our faith.' And the Lord said, 'If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, be uprooted and be planted in the sea and it would obey you. But which of you having a slave plowing or tending sheep would say to him when he has come in from the field, 'Come immediately and sit down to eat?' But will he not say to him, 'Prepare something for me to eat. And properly clothe yourself and serve me until I have eaten and drunk and afterward you will eat and drink?' He doesn't thank the slave because he did the things which were commanded, does he? So you too when you do all the things which are commanded you say we are unworthy slaves, we have done only that which we ought to have done."...
