Matthew 22 Devotions by Stephen Taylor

Matthew 22:31,32

“But about the resurrection of the dead—have you not read what God said to you, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.’”


We serve the only Living God, and through Christ, we too are made alive both now and forever! The Holy Spirit showed me that there is a powerful and profound truth tucked in these verses. Jesus says, “Have you not read what God said to you”? He is referring to the Scriptures written hundreds of years before their time yet refers to them as if God was speaking them to them in real-time.


This tells me that every word in the Bible is as applicable then as it is now. The things He spoke to Abraham, He is speaking to us now. The truths He told Moses on the mountain and in the tent are as real and powerful now as they were then. This tells me that every word from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 is still true, and our lives should be lived accordingly.


One of the things Jesus is teaching us here is that God is speaking to His people through His pages, but the question is, are we listening? Do we take the Word of God and mold it to fit our lives, or do we take our lives and mold them around the Word (both written and Living?) The Scriptures are alive and bring us alive if we listen and obey what they say!


Psalm 86:11 - Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart so that I may honor you.


Hebrews 4:12 - For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.


God bless! I love you all, but He loves you more! Glory, honor, and praise now and forever to Papa God, Jesus Christ our King, and the Holy Spirit!
