(NLT) Luke 17 : 1 One day Jesus said to his disciples, "There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting!
(NLT) Luke 17 : 2 It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around your neck than to cause one of these little ones to fall into sin.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 3 So watch yourselves! "If another believer sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 4 Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive."
(NLT) Luke 17 : 5 The apostles said to the Lord, "Show us how to increase our faith."
(NLT) Luke 17 : 6 The Lord answered, "If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'May you be uprooted and thrown into the sea,' and it would obey you!
(NLT) Luke 17 : 7 "When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, does his master say, 'Come in and eat with me'?
(NLT) Luke 17 : 8 No, he says, 'Prepare my meal, put on your apron, and serve me while I eat. Then you can eat later.'
(NLT) Luke 17 : 9 And does the master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 10 In the same way, when you obey me you should say, 'We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.'"
(NLT) Luke 17 : 11 As Jesus continued on toward Jerusalem, he reached the border between Galilee and Samaria.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 12 As he entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance,
(NLT) Luke 17 : 13 crying out, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!"
(NLT) Luke 17 : 14 He looked at them and said, "Go show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed of their leprosy.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 15 One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, "Praise God!"
(NLT) Luke 17 : 16 He fell to the ground at Jesus' feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 17 Jesus asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?
(NLT) Luke 17 : 18 Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?"
(NLT) Luke 17 : 19 And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you."
(NLT) Luke 17 : 20 One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, "When will the Kingdom of God come?" Jesus replied, "The Kingdom of God can't be detected by visible signs.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 21 You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is already among you."
(NLT) Luke 17 : 22 Then he said to his disciples, "The time is coming when you will long to see the day when the Son of Man returns, but you won't see it.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 23 People will tell you, 'Look, there is the Son of Man,' or 'Here he is,' but don't go out and follow them.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so it will be on the day when the Son of Man comes.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 25 But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected by this generation.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 26 "When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah's day.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 27 In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 28 "And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business--eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building--
(NLT) Luke 17 : 29 until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 30 Yes, it will be 'business as usual' right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 31 On that day a person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return home.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 32 Remember what happened to Lot's wife!
(NLT) Luke 17 : 33 If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 34 That night two people will be asleep in one bed; one will be taken, the other left.
(NLT) Luke 17 : 35 Two women will be grinding flour together at the mill; one will be taken, the other left."
(NLT) Luke 17 : 36 Two women will be grinding flour together at the mill; one will be taken, the other left."
(NLT) Luke 17 : 37 "Where will this happen, Lord?" the disciples asked. Jesus replied, "Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near."
