God gives good gifts to His people in order that we might bear fruit for His Kingdom. Jesus will come again and judge us according to our faithfulness. We must not make either of two mistakes: living in fear of that judgment and so not doing anything . . . nor can we attempt to work for God’s glory in our own power. Only in God’s power and provision can we be a blessing.

In this passage, Jesus begins His last teaching discourse in Matthew’s Gospel. He outlines for His disciples and for all people how they are to act as Kingdom citizens. They are not to be filled with pride, but rather they are to be humble before the Lord. We know this to be true because Jesus even humbles Himself as He comes to live and die for His people. May we all look to Him for salvation this day!

Matthew 21:23-32 outline two of Jesus’ teachings that are related. The first section of the passage demonstrates that Jesus has divine authority because He is the God of the universe who has come in the flesh. The second section then shows us that Jesus is the only one who can actually produce the inward change that God requires to satisfy holiness and justice. May everyone look to this Jesus in order to have life and salvation.
