Matthew – the Gospel of Fulfillment Chapter 17 Listen or Little?
There are some great happenings in this chapter, especially for Peter, James and John as they witness Jesus in His glory. There’s even a great “fish” story at the end.
There isn’t that many times when we get to hear God the Father speaking, so when He does we need to pay attention. In v5, He says, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!” So what’s the response we should make?
Unfortunately, just a little later at v20, Jesus comments on the “littleness” of their faith.
Those who live large in this world have little faith in Jesus. But those who listen to Jesus will live large for eternity.
