The parables of Matthew 13 illustrate a single, fundamental truth drawn from daily life. It says that the Kingdom of God has come among humans in the form of our Lord and Savior. As I read the chapter this morning, one particular verse struck me. In the New King James Version, verse 52 reads, ” Then He (Jesus) said to them (disciples), “Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the Kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old.”
This is the message I received from this passage; that every student well-trained in the kingdom will bring forth exactly what is needed out of God’s storehouse at just the right time; for just the right person and situation; and out of this training the scribe and student will manifest blessings, power, and the light, and love of Christ. At the moment my spirit accepted this new revelation this blog took on new meaning and purpose as well as my studies. I am a vessel, as you are dear friends, a householder of truth; of the gospel message and of the power and presence of God. “Study to show thyself approved, a workmen who needed not to be ashamed:; bringing forth out of God’s household treasures beyond measure. Hold up the standard of God upon the roof of your house showing all and sharing with all that the Kingdom of God has come. Christ said, “Behold, I make all things new…” We are new creations; householders containing the gospel message.
Isaiah 30:21 says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Walk in the knowledge that as scribes and students there is written upon our hearts keys to the Kingdom in the person of Jesus Christ. John MacArthur once said, “In many ways, the attitude of obedience is much more vital than the act, because if the attitude is right, the act will naturally follow.”
May your attitude be right and in accordance with the will of God. May your actions reflect the attitude of obedience with this divine truth. Write and study as a holy, blessed and beloved scribes, and students who share the keys to the Kingdom with all who need them. Blessings to you.
