It’s Time to Begin! {Intro and Resources for Luke 1-5}

Join Good Morning Girls as we read through the Bible cover to cover one chapter a day. Here are the resources you need to study the Book of Luke. #Biblestudy #Luke #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Cue the Confetti!  It’s time to begin!!!  I am so excited to begin the Book of Luke with you.

There is an extra resource for parents, that I have not mentioned yet, that is available for the book of Luke.  My friend’s husband, Shawn Lazarus, has begun a new blog for fathers.  He is a former University of Michigan Football player (who started in 29 games), who signed a free-agent contract with the Detroit Lions.  He is a father of 6, with a passion to disciple his children in the word.  He is sharing the discussion questions he uses with his children, with us for free, so we can lead our family’s through the book of Luke too.

If you are interested, visit his website at GreaterQuestionsAnswered.com and subscribe so you will receive the weekly questions right to your email inbox!  You do not have to subscribe to get them.  He will be posting the questions weekly alongside the Good Morning Girls right on his blog.  I hope this resource is an added blessing.

Now – let’s get started!

Here’s The Book of Luke Overview

The book of Luke is a vivid account of the life of Jesus. Luke takes us on an exciting journey from Jesus’ birth, to his public ministry, death, resurrection and ascension into heaven. Salvation is clearly found in no one else but Jesus!

Luke was a doctor and he took special care to record everything accurately. Of all the gospels, Luke gives us the most detailed account of Jesus’ birth. Luke shows the humanity of Jesus through showcasing his genealogy, his birth story, his growth as a boy, his prayer life and the betrayal and denial from some of his closest friends.

Jesus’ many miracles and parables, written in this book, along with his compassion for the outcasts and sinners, and his love for women and children, draw us in deeper, to understanding our Savior. The climax is when Jesus rises from the dead and ascends into heaven!

Luke not only penned this book but he also wrote the book of Acts. These two books combined, make up one-fourth of the New Testament!

Here is this week’s Bible Reading Plan:

Here are this week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions

{If you do not have a group, use these for a personal time of reflection.}:

Chapter 1

The world says believe and you will receive. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. But that is not what Luke 1:37 says. It says nothing is impossible “with God.” It is God who is the source of all power and possibilities.

Tell of a time when you saw God do something impossible in your own life or the life of someone you know.

Chapter 2

The King of Kings, the Messiah, Emmanuel- God with us, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, our glorious Savior was born! Oh what good news this is!!!

Have you placed your faith in Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins? If you haven’t – do it today! If you have, share your testimony. When did Jesus become your personal savior?

Chapter 3

At Jesus’ baptism, we see the trinity –God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit – 3 in 1. It boggles my mind to try to grasp the awe of the trinity. I am so thankful that we will have trillions of years in heaven, to explore this mystery.

How does pondering, how awesome our triune God is, encourage you today?

Chapter 4

When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, he used scripture to fight temptation. He did not use his supernatural power but rather he fought by simply wielding the sword of God’s Word.

When we are tempted, we have the same resource available to us that Jesus used – God’s Word. In what areas of your life, do you need to be better armed with God’s Word to help you fight your temptations?

Chapter 5
Jesus came for those who were not just sick WITH sin but also sick OF their sin. He did not come for the self-righteous but for those who are humble enough to admit they are a sinner, in need of a savior.

Physicians fix broken bones and give healing to wounds. Jesus is the great Physician. What is one area where you need spiritual healing in your life or you have experienced his spiritual healing?

Special Note: For those who have done previous studies with GMG, we are discontinuing the Reflection Question Graphics due to the length of the question not fitting on a graphic. Going forward, they will be printed in Monday’s Resource post in this format.  Please copy and paste them in your emails or Facebook groups.  Thank you!

  1. Thank you Courtney for sharing the link to the Greater Questions Answered website and specifically the book of Luke comprehension questions.

    A few of your readers have already expressed their gratitude. Thank you.

  2. Thank you. Excited to start this perfect as we lead up to Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. The first chapter is already jam packed with things to learn and understand.

  3. What great timing of this study! Admittedly, I struggled daily with committing to 1 Samuel and fell way behind (I finished it last week), and I was apprehensive about going through Luke. But I’m so glad I took time this morning to start!!

    I’m​ very pregnant – as in, my due date is on Sat. But since my first baby was born 6 days past my due date, my midwives have said to expect the same timing.. It wasn’t​ so bad to prepare my heart for this, especially as I had several friends who were also due in March (two of which were due significantly after me). However, as of Saturday morning, ALL of them have given birth – and I’m the only one to have reached 39wks.. I’m very happy for all of my friends, but at the same time, I feel frustrated and jealous (in addition to all normal end-of-pregnancy feelings). Reading Luke 1 today was so helpful! In fact I kept praying for strength all last week and God’s words in Luke 1:37 really changed my perspective. Even if this baby takes two more weeks to be born, I know that nothing is impossible with God. I feel strengthened and renewed knowing that I can trust in God’s plan for this baby! I’m going to do the best I can, to stay involved/committed to finish this study.

  4. Staying at home with our first (and perhaps only) baby. Finally he’s sleeping decently, praise God.

    I’ve wanted to do these for the longest time and I’m finally getting settled in and able to do so! Thank you for your commitment to “spreading the GOOD news!” You’re a warrior.

  5. I missed Samuel (next time around) and figured doing LUKE now would be a wonderful way to keep the death, burial, and resurrection first and foremost in my mind this month – thanks!

  6. Courtney,
    I really look forward to your Bible journal studies. I also checked into the site referenced in
    this week’s Luke study concerning GreaterQuestionsAnswered.com and both of your works complement each other so well. Have you both considered working with each other in future chapter by chapter questions with your journaling on your site? So awesome!????
    Keep up the fantastic work for our Lord and Savior,
