Our DAILY GOSPEL DEVOTIONAL is the story of Jesus from Incarnation to Ascension. This is a chronology and harmony of the gospel accounts in which the ongoing narrative and doctrinal context are carefully considered. In one year we reflect on every passage of every gospel.
May God bless you as we follow the disciples on the journey through the earthly life of Jesus Christ.

Daily Gospel Devotional 2013: Master messengers

Matthew 13:51-52…

Jesus asked the disciples if they had understood what He had been teaching them, and they replied, “Yes”. Jesus said that anyone who understands what He is teaching is someone who is being trained in the kingdom of heaven, that is, to be able to see what God is doing, know His ways, and teach other people how to live.

A true “spiritual scribe” is one who can see what is coming and can process what is happening in light of God’s truth. They know God. They know His ways. They trust and treasure Him. They don’t just have knowledge, but wisdom, and they don’t just know doctrine, they have real devotion and from them we see demonstration. They have lived this thing out, and so they are the most mature and discerning among us (Hebrews 5:11-14). They live and learn and love in the power of God. Their life is full of His life and so they bring that life to any and every situation. People are better off spiritually for having been around them. They can use past experience but also move about with God in a fresh fruitfulness. Oh how we need such people today!

Do you want to meet people like this? Do you want to BE a person like this? It all starts with understanding, and being trained. That is a reward of recognizing and realizing (making it real, cashing in on) this relationship. Keep following the Master, find out what He means, and do what He says, and He will make you a master messenger. Being able to have old gold and fresh fruit, it is the best way to live a treasured life.
