Innovative Biblical Leadership

by Brett Fuller on September 27, 2021

In Matthew 13:52 Jesus said, "Therefore every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, who brings out of his treasure things new and old." 

Scribes were "by hand" transcribers (copiers) of Holy Writ. They knew the scriptures better than anyone. When one of them became a disciple, their ability to interpret the OT through the new gospel and the new gospel through the OT, moved them to the head of the line for leadership promotion.

With today's technology, we have no need for the scriptures to be copied by hand. Yet, the need for innovative biblical leadership which incorporates our past is enormous. So, may God help us to love His world & His Word enough to always be on His short list of available leaders who can guide His people to Himself and to the lost. Live right, live well...
