Luke 9:51-56 ESV: [51] When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. [52] And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make preparations for him. [53] But the people did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. [54] And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to tell fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” [55] But he turned and rebuked them. [56] And they went on to another village. 

As followers of Jesus we are to enthusiastically engage others with the love and glory of Jesus; however, we are never to take more responsibility than Jesus has granted us. We are never to judge others.
