“God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.”
Matthew 13:51, 52 says,
51 Jesus said to them, “Have you understood all these things?“ They answered, “Yes, Lord.”
52 He said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”
Some parables are old and hard to understand but we must try to understand them and apply them to our lives today. Likewise, God says we must uncover new treasures and share new parables, as well.
Jesus made sure to ask his disciples, do you understand?
Why did Jesus make sure to ask if they understood? Because sometimes we might not immediately understand everything in front of us. Sometimes we come off as being nutty. If we don’t understand something we have to think about it, we have to talk about it, we have to study it more. Then, when we come to better understand the glory of our God, when the picture becomes clear, we will truly yield the spiritual fruits that He wants us to share with others.
Praise the Lord.
The Bible, the word of God, is our handbook to salvation. It is the peace that passes all understanding. Thank you for sharing it with PNN today.
