Ep. 74 - Matthew - Chapter 4 - verses 12-25
This week on the Adorned Podcast we take a look at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in Matthew 4:12-25. We know that Jesus didn’t need the disciples’ help, but in His kindness He invited them in. The Bible tells us that the disciples didn’t hesitate to follow Jesus, they just dropped their fishing nets and went “immediately.” Immediate obedience is hard, but it is a theme that we have already seen so much in the first 4 chapters of Matthew. How is God asking you to follow him in immediate obedience today?
“Being a disciple means having an open mind, an open heart, and being willing to be taught.”
“Jesus didn’t need the disciple’s help, but He was willing to invite them in so they could be a part of what He was doing to expand the kingdom. What a gift.”
“Caring for someone’s physical needs is hard, but it really is such an important part of sharing the gospel.”
“We need more than the humble life of Christ, we also need need the victorious rule and ministry of Christ to overcome Satan’s schemes, to bring healing and restoration to the brokenness that sin produces, and provide reconciliation between God and man.” -Jeff Vanderstelt
