MATTHEW 7:24_Therefore, whosoever…
Remember, the word therefore has an important purpose. Go back to Jesus’ previous principle. He is about to give you more clarification and some new insight. In this verse He sends you back to the very beginning of the sermon. He wants you to apply this final teaching to the entire sermon.
My sister in Jesus, Joan Morris, sent me an email. In it she made a statement which fits so well the therefore and the whosoever. She said, “The mind is a mysterious keeper of our past, both good and bad.” I really like that and fully agree. God created the mysterious keeper. Like everything, He wants it to be used for your good. If God created something for good, the devil will do all he can to use it for destruction. He knows the bad of the past in your keeper. He whispers the bad into your mind for as long as you allow yourself to listen.
Therefore, Jesus has given you the greatest sermon ever preached by anyone at any time in history. He preached it for everyone—whosoever. He wants this sermon seared into your mysterious keeper. He wants it to be available throughout your life. One time through will not get it.
