“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 13:34-35




Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables;

without a parable He told them nothing.

This was to fulfil what had been spoken through the prophet:


‘I will open my mouth to speak in parables;

I will proclaim what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.’


– Matthew 13:34-35 (NRSV)






When we truly and gladly accept Jesus as the Way, the Truth and the Life,

and humbly allow His Spirit to act in us,

Scripture, and every word that Jesus tells us, will come to life

and the Holy Spirit will reveal to us – at every given moment of our lives –

what the Lord is telling us; what He wants from us.


The need for simplicity, humility and docility to the Gospel

cannot be emphasised enough.

Jesus speaks to those of us who go to Him,

and the Spirt will give us the wisdom

to help us understand.


On the other hand,

God’s true plans are hidden from those who are not disposed to accept them;

from those who are not truly willing to allow the Lord to lead them;

from those who come to God’s Word with their own agenda

and with their minds pre-set on what they expect it to say and mean.






Speak to me Lord, Your servant is listening.
