Blessed – Luke 11:27-28
Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.
As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.” He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Yeshua said “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
Now, this statement was not given to belittle His mother Marry. We know the scriptures declare she was indeed blessed as given in Luke 1:42. However, Yeshua is making a statement that all will be blessed who hear and obey the Word of YHWH.
The greater question is “What is the Word of God Yeshua is referring to here?” Do you believe in all of the Word of God? Or do you believe only in parts of it? What was considered the Word of God when Yeshua actually said those words in Luke 11? What would the people who heard Him say those words have understood Him to be referring to? They only had what we call the “Old Testament”. So what should we be calling the Word?
Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
