Daily Devotional Luke 22:49-51 – Should Christians strike with swords? Part 1 – Free Online Bible Study – Commentary in easy English – Day 393

When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords? And one of them (Peter) struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him. (Luke 22:49-51)

It’s my prayer Christmas brought you closer to Jesus and your loved ones. I’ve missed you during my short Christmas break.

In the movie, A Christmas Solo, Melissa’s mother abandoned her. Feeling unloved, she turned on new student, Charlotte, who auditioned for and won the Christmas festival solo that would’ve been Melissa’s if Charlotte hadn’t moved into town. Melissa spread false rumors about Charlotte and gathered other mean students to vandalize Charlotte’s outdoor Christmas decorations. The enemy entered Melissa because those feeling unloved are easy targets. Instead of turning on Melissa, Charlotte healed her with love. She called Melissa on stage to share the Christmas solo with her. They become friends.

John’s Gospel states Peter was the swordsman. Aiming for the jugular, Peter cut off the ear of Malchus, the servant of the high priest (also named in John’s Gospel). Again, Jesus doesn’t want His disciples to carry weapons meant to kill. He tells Peter, “No more of this!”

Ephesians 6:17 states our sword should be the word of God. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any doubled-edged sword, and piercing … able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Scriptures stab our flesh with a double edge; one side convicts us, but the other heals us.

Judas and Malchus both represent the enemy, the former was a disciple but the latter was not.  From Jesus we learned to convict Christian enemies with inclusion at church and serving them when possible. Here Jesus teaches us to convict non-Christian enemies with healing.

Imagine the impact: Malchus approaches Jesus to lynch Him with his sword, and Peter amputates his ear. We expect to be injured in battle. In Matthew’s version (26:52) Jesus tells Peter. “Those who live by the sword, die by the sword.” But we don’t expect our enemies to heal us. When we do something nice for our enemies as Charlotte did for Melissa in the Christmas Solo, it heals them. When Jesus healed Malchus, I can imagine Malchus  became a disciple when he discovered Jesus cared about him even though he came as Jesus’ enemy. (The Bible doesn’t tell us if Malchus was converted.)

Today, we use words to stab someone’s ear. When our ears and lives are stabbed, Jesus heals us because He knows we need both ears to hear God’s word and nudge us to do His will. Spreading God’s love helps people heal and is a stepping stone to lead them to God.

Dearest Heavenly Father, I praise You for healing. Sometimes You heal directly but other times you depend on me. Help me hear your nudging. I pray in Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.

  1. About 2 years before I retired a woman was hired into the Special Education department. She seemed very nice at first, but as time passed I could tell that she didn’t like me. I could have used my position to squelch her attitude a bit but chose not to take that approach and use kindness. In time, using kindness worked and what could have been a very awkward working relationship, turned into a good relationship. Using kindness instead of the sword is always the best approach and it would be what Jesus wants us to do. I can think of many times when I used the sword in haste and anger. I will probably fail and do it again but hopefully God will help me see my bad choice and I can apologize.

    1. Good for you. Thanks for the good example. We have all used the sword in haste and anger, and you’re right we’ll all do it again but hopefully not as much with God’s help!

  60. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the
    pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why
    but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it
    in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    1. God sent John the Baptist to teach the importance of repenting and Jesus to forgive our wrongdoings. We can only have perfect peace when we forgive ourselves. I prayed for the Holy Spirit to pray for you and your family and grant your needs and for you to grasp how wide and long and high and deep His love is for you. I hope you see my new post, “What must I do to be saved.” https://www.jodyarmstrong.org/2021/03/28/daily-devotional-acts-411-12-what-must-i-do-to-be-saved-free-online-bible-study-commentary-in-easy-english-day-468/ Blessings, Jody
