Disciples on what’s for dinner
“They discussed this among themselves and said, “It is because we didn’t bring any bread.” Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked, “You of little faith, why are you talking among yourselves about having no bread? Do you still not understand?” – Matthew 16:7-9
Jesus had just finished telling the disciples to be careful of the yeast of the Pharisees and the disciples didn’t get it. They thought He was talking about bread when what He was talking about was following the law instead of Him.
Disciples in a dunce cap lesson #1 – know your enemy! Your enemy is not understanding how complete His Love, Mercy, Grace and Salvation IS! Your enemy wants you to think you have to do more than what Jesus already did! Your enemy wants you so busy trying to “do” righteous acts that you fail to realize that ALL righteousness comes from God Alone and that came the moment you believed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Thank-Fully this dunce cap lesson has a happy ending in vs. 12 of the same chapter:
“Then they understood that he was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
They realized it was the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees – why was this verse allowed in the Bible – THEY TAUGHT THE LAW for righteousness and Not Christ Alone – they also didn’t follow Christ and arranged to have Him crucified!
But the real reason we can see it today is simple – “Love your neighbor as yourself and so fulfill all the law and the prophets!” – sound familiar? Here is a hint – this is Not the teaching of the Pharisees, Sadducees or most of today’s churches – Only Jesus taught this and those teaching True Grace that sets you Free from law and condemnation – “You are no longer under the law – you are under Grace!”
