Do you ever feel angry with people who are openly hostile to Christ? Luke 9:51-56 describes the disciples' anger at such a time, and shows us Jesus' response.
As the time drew near for him to ascend to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. He sent messengers ahead to a Samaritan village to prepare for his arrival. But the people of the village did not welcome Jesus because he was on his way to Jerusalem. When James and John saw this, they said to Jesus, "Lord, should we call down fire from heaven to burn them up?" But Jesus turned and rebuked them. So they went on to another village.
How will you respond to those who are hostile to Jesus around you today?
