DAILY BIBLE READING
Don’t Hide What You Have Seen
You need to know that it is a great privilege to have seen the salvation of God. From the passage for today, it is clear that there are many sinners who when they look at their lives, they don’t see the spiritual wretchedness but see their achievements. Jesus said, they see but they do not see. They are not blind physically, but they are spiritually blind. They don’t understand the things of God. No wonder He commanded His disciples who have understood the things of heaven to lift up their eyes and see the spiritual bankruptcy of sinners. Therefore, if you have seen God’s salvation and mysteries of the kingdom, don’t hide from those who are dull of hearing, but declare it to them to be saved.
Point of Emphasis: To you it has been given to know the mysteries of heaven.
Prayer Point: Lord, open the understanding of sinners to the mysteries of the kingdom.
