Out of the Storehouse – Matthew 13:51-52

Key Passage

{Then Jesus asked his followers,} “Do you understand all these things?” The followers said, “Yes, we understand.” Then Jesus said to the followers, “So every teacher of the law who has been taught {the new things} about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house. He has new things and old things saved in that house. And he brings out those new things with the old things.”

— Matthew 13:51-52 ERV (Read Full Text)

Key Thought

The Bible is such a wonderful treasure. Many have died protecting it. Others have been martyred making sure it is translated into everyday language for everyday people. But for the Bible to be properly understood, the great key to this storehouse of knowledge is Jesus. His Kingdom is the goal toward which Scripture moves. He is the “Yes” to every promise God has made. He is the most complete and greatest Word of God. Because we know him and listen to his voice and let him help us understand what God has said and meant, we can know the great secrets of God’s plan. But this great promise and gift are ours only on one condition: We are willing to not only study and learn the truth; we are also willing to put it into effect in our daily lives! Truth becomes real when we live it. God’s grace becomes gracious to us only when we obey him and live in that grace. So let’s enter the storehouse using God’s key to receive the great riches of his Kingdom!

Prayer

O great God of the heavens, Teacher of truth and Giver of grace, help me to know your will through Jesus. Enlighten my heart so I may live with undivided devotion to you. In the name of your precious Son, Jesus of Nazareth, King of glory, and Lord of my life, I pray. Amen.
