๐Ÿ‘‘ Things New And Old

When our Lord had finished His familiar discourse on โ€œthe mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,โ€ He said:

โ€œTherefore, every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like a man that is an householder, who brings forth out of his treasure things new and oldโ€ (Matt. 13:52).

A new era had just dawned in the worldโ€™s history. A new message was being proclaimed. John the Baptist had begun to cry: โ€œRepent ye, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!โ€ and the Lord Jesus and the twelve had taken up the same message.

Some listened eagerly, others turned away โ€” among them many of the scribes, the Bible teachers of the day. They did not welcome any new teaching. Yet Christโ€™s message of the kingdom in no way conflicted with the Old Testament Scriptures. Indeed, it was based on the Old Testament and confirmed by it. This is why our Lord reminded His hearers that the right kind of scribe would bring forth out of the treasure-house of Scripture, things both new and old.

How this lesson is needed today! Some cast away precious treasures out of the Bible, contending that they are old and out of date. Others, while clinging tenaciously to old truths, reject new light. While mere professors of religion too often cast aside old truths with the complaint that they are outworn, true possessors often reject new light simply because it is new. They vie with each other to be orthodox instead of vying to find more light from the unfathomable Word of God.

Is it possible that we have drained the Well of Scripture dry? Are there no more precious stones in that exhaustless Mine? Have any of us received all the light that shines from the Holy Bible?

Then, cost what it may, let us keep digging into the Scriptures, that as we minister to others we may bring forth out of the divine Treasure-house things both new and old. source

Verse for 6/28/2017

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. — 2 Peter 3:9
