Daily Reading – Genesis 40-41 / Matthew 13:1-35
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Some have read this verse in the New Testament and felt Jesus purposefully was trying to keep Salvation as secret from those around. However if you look at Jesus’ own explanation it was not the story that was the problem, it was the heart of the hearer. Those around him had the scrolls, the scripture of that time and yet were not willing to listen or see what Jesus was teaching. They had grown cold to the truth. Their heart it says had waxed gross, or unreceptive.
Today in America and in most parts of the world the teachings of the Bible are readily available, yet people are unreceptive. It’s not that the Word of God is not taught, It’s that people will not see or hear the truth.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
How can we help people
see it, hear it, and Get it?
