2.13.21 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on Matthew. Part 18. Revelation.

Welcome to our continued study on the book of Matthew.

Matthew 4:12 – 17 talks about how Jesus returned to Galilee to preach. This fulfilled the prophecy in Isaiah. Check out verses 15-16 that recite the prophecy.

One interesting thing in the prophecy is the phrase, “we have seen a brilliant Light.” Light is a common name for the Messiah in the rabbinical literature. It speaks of both Christ and the revelatory teachings that he brings. The Aramaic word for Galilee means “revelation of God”. Jesus was raised and ministered in the land of the “Revelation of God.”

Here’s the definition of revelation from Webster’s dictionary: 1. an act of revealing or communicating divine truth. 2. something that is revealed by God to humans.

So. Begs the question. Is God revealing anything to you these days? How often are you seeking God’s revelation in your life. Jesus came to reveal God to us. To reveal His love, goodness, mercy, grace to all of us. To make it more human. To make it more attainable I guess is one way to put it.

Jesus made the revelation of God more attainable. He gave us the ability to understand the heart of the Father more and more because of his example of love and grace towards us.

So…again, it begs the question. Are you seeking the revelation of God in your life? Are you seeking divine truth?

The fact that you’re reading this devotion is a good indication that you are. But, more than that, what else are you doing to find God in everything?

Not easy questions but questions that should be asked.

Today. Seek God’s revelation in your life.

    Jesus is the light unto us. Let us be the light unto others so that they may be guided to our Lord and savior. Be filled, overflowed, with his gifts. Share those with others; disciple with others. Listen for Gods calling in your life and stand and proclaim it today. Amen.
