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.”

Musing Through Matthew- Quick Before He Comes

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10: 23 and the theme of Jesus king. In our text for study today our Lord tells His disciples to be quick in speaking the gospel before He comes again. He has not even left yet and already speaks of His return. He tells them they do not have time for those who are uninterested in the gospel. The gospel does not advance through violence but gentleness. If there is a great opposition to the gospel move on to the fields where spiritual light is bright and the fields or ripe for harvest.

Musing Through Matthew- Hated Because Of Jesus

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:22 and the theme of Jesus the king. The thought we are left with today is being hated because of Jesus. It tells us that we will be hated by all men because of His name. We should not be amazed that the world hates Jesus’ name. It is to us, Jesus is the sweetest name I know and He is just the same as His lovely name and that’s the reason why I love Him so because Jesus is the sweetest name I know. Do not miss the promise here we are told to persevere  press on to the end of their hatred because of His name and we shall be saved and they will be lost for ever.

Musing Through Matthew- Family Turns On Family

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:21 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text today we find family turns on families. Religious hatred can get family members to turn upon one another with such hatred it may even turn to murder. We cannot expect a family member to have love for us if they have no love for God. The heart of the lost man is desperately wicked and will unleash itself upon even a family member.

Musing Through Matthew- Speaking Through Us

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10: 20 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text today Jesus tells us who it is that is speaking through us. Jesus said that the Father will cause the Spirit to speak in us, through us, and for us. Jesus told us in John’s Gospel that the Spirit will not speak of Himself but will speak only of Christ. Let me this day be filled with the Spirit and when my mouth is open Christ will gush forth.

Musing Through Matthew- Standing Before Earthly Judges

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:19 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we are given thoughts on our response when we are called to stand before earthly judges because of our faith in Christ. Our Lord tells us not to be anxious about what we shall say. In that very hour God the Father through the power of the Holy Ghost will put in our mouths the words we are to say. This has been true over and over again in the cases of the martyrs defending the truth before their deaths. Simple peasants have brought low great philosophers and humble women have caused the mighty to be silent.
