Musing Through Matthew- Open Doors

Let us muse again today Matthew 10: 11-12 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today our Lord instructs the disciples of the need to look for open doors. He told them to look for a welcome as they went from house to house.Let us be careful in sharing the gospel when it is obvious that God is not working upon the one to whom we are speaking. He also tells us to offer a benediction of blessing upon the open doors we find. Let us give much thanks unto the Lord when there is an effective door open to share the precious gospel of salvation.

Musing Through Matthew- All Needs Supplied

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10: 9-10 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our verse for study today we find the lesson of all our needs supplied. Our Lord told the disciples not to load themselves down with extra baggage because He would put it in the hearts of their hearers to supply all their needs. I can testify to the fact that everything that I have from my clothes to my car has been given to me by God’s people and to God may all the glory be given. It is but right and just that people should support in temporal needs those who minister to them in spiritual things.

Musing Through Matthew-Ministering To Physical Needs

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:8 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study for today our Lord instructs his Disciples to not only help men’s spiritual needs but to minister to their physical needs. I notice that their power had not been purchased but given and their miracles were not to be sold. Our text  tells us that they were given the power to raise the dead. Let us be reminded that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation even to raise dead sinners to live a life more abundantly.

Musing Through Matthew- Heaven Is At Hand

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:7 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our verse for study today I find a warning that heaven is at hand. I have been reminded during these days of bad weather whenever the weather man gives forecast of bad weather is approaching everyone scrambles to make preparation. When the old preacher or godly Christian says Jesus is coming, judgment is coming, or heaven is at hand we do nothing. Go figure we would put more stock in the words of the weatherman, wow.

Musing Through Matthew- Special Mission

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10: 5-6 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today Jesus sends His disciples out on a special mission. This would give credence to those who may have a burden for a select group of people. Notice they were not to go to all the house of Israel but only to the lost sheep of this house. God is the only one who can put  in a man’s soul an overwhelming sense of being lost  are make him into a sheep. Let us not forget the overall mission is go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Musing Through Matthew- What An Indictment

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:4 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today all I can say is what an indictment. Judas who brings up the rear of this list of disciples was the financier and carrier of the bag of money for this group. The indictment is found in the words, who also betrayed Him. Let it never be that which is coupled with the mention of my name.

Musing Through Matthew- Treasures In The List

Let us muse again today from Matthew 10:3 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we find treasures in the list. We have here a list of the disciples. Philip and Bartholomew are always mentioned together. Most believe that Bartholomew is Nathaniel the one Philip brought to Christ. We always have a strong relationship with those who first introduced us to Christ. Matthew does not fail to mention himself as the publican and tax collector. This title alone magnifies the great treasure of the grace of God that changed this Bible writer’s life.
