Daily Bread

Scriptures that have been provoking some thought



Matt. 9:9-10 As Jesus went on from there, He saw a man called Matthew, sitting in the tax collector's booth; and He said to him, "Follow Me!" And he got up and followed Him.10Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples.


Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,

  1. hey steven, you gotta check out Bill Hybels book "Walk Across the Room". He mentions about this encounter & how Mathew invites Jesus & the disciples to a dinner party with all of his colleagues/peers. Interestingly Mathew, now a changed man invites 2 different groups of people. One could only ask the question why?? My guess is that Mathew really wanted his ol' friends to be introduced to His new friends. I'm encouraged to have a "Mathew Party" also, a gathering or fellowship of people just to hang out (games, coffee & converstations). Not to preach & make the non believers feel out of place but to make some common connection & one day have the great opportunity to share GOD'S Story! thanks for the encouraging stuff on here... you gotta write a book!! You DA MAN!!!
