Musing Through Matthew-Peace At Any Cost (Wrong)

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:34-36 and the theme of Jesus the king. Our text for today places a big wrong on the question of the peace at any cost people. When Jesus comes into a life it will often incite great opposition from others in the family. Truth will provoke opposition, purity excites enmity, and righteousness arouses all the forces of hell. Let us not be a silent believer thinking it will create peace. I find the cost of knowing the peace maker will often do anything but peace in our outward daily life and walk among  people especially family.

Musing Through Matthew- Cost Of Confession

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:32-33 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we are confronted with the cost of confession. We are warned here that the lack of confessing Christ to men will cost us far more in the world to come than in the world that now is. I asked the question can a non-confessing faith save? I am convinced from the text that it cannot. In the words of Spurgeon, “Holy Spirit enable me to confess you no matter what the spirit of the age be, uphold thy church when she is most despised, obey thy precepts when they cost most dear, and glory in thy name when it is most reproached”.

Musing Through Matthew- Birds, Hair, And Fear

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10: 29-31 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we find the subjects of birds, hair, and fear. It is here we find the greatest cure for fear. I see that our Lord makes note of every sparrow that dies. He even said they do not fall without the Fathers planning and are we not of more value than the birds. He also tells us our hairs are numbered. It is not so much a total but the first hair on your head had the number one and if one falls out He can tell you the number of it in its order. He is the eternal watcher nothing happens without His ordained permission. My friend that is perfect love that cast out all fears.

Musing Through Matthew- Fear Of God Vs Man

Let us muse today from Matthew 10: 28 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today our Lord compares the fear of God with the fear of man. We often fear to speak to man because of fear of what they can do to us. Our Lord said to fear Him who can destroy our body and soul in hell. There is no cure for the fear of man like the fear of God.

Musing Through Matthew- Shout It From The House Top

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:27 and the theme  of Jesus the king. Our Lord here tells us to spend much time in secret with Him and when God speaks a word to us shout it from the house top. If He desires to bring us into the darkness of suffering listen well for there in the dark hour of the soul He will often give us a word, and when He does hasten to tell it like the town crier of old.

Musing Through Matthew-Servants Of The Master

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10: 24-25 and the theme of Jesus the king. Our study today  lands us on some truths about the servants of the master. Our Lord tells us we should not be shocked when we are treated like the master. Do remember they treated our master with a walk to Calvary. Spurgeon said, “O Lord Jesus our Savior King, we see how Thou was treated, and we joyfully enter into the fellowship of Thy suffering! Grant us grace never to shrink in our loyalty to thee, cost whatever it may.”
