"The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength..."
A Word From The Pastor:
“And he said unto them, You are from beneath; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of this world … but He that sent me is true: and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of Him … They understood not that he spoke to them of the Father …” John 8:23, 26-27
Here's a thought to consider...
The human perspective of spiritual matters can be intriguing. When you talk to a child-believer about some bad deed they did, they will sometimes ignorantly defend themselves with the excuse that the “devil made me do it.” Since, they are inexperienced about spiritual matters they can be unaware that the bible teaches us that the devil cannot make us do anything. We are the ones who are tempted by our own fleshly desires, and faced with the choice to be obedient unto God.
In contrast to this example, we witness the television storyline’s portrayal of a devout believer doing some extreme immoral action unto others. Then the screen-writers will write the words that “God told me to do it,” and followed by some vague biblical reference. In like manner, these secular screen-writers are equally inexperienced about spiritual matters. They have no understanding that to be a devout believer means to discipline oneself in obedience unto God, and not some hypocritical enforcement of beliefs on to others.
Thus, both the child-believer and the screen-writer demonstrate the very words of Jesus:
“you are of this world; I am not of this world”
Jesus came to reveal spiritual matters from the heavenly perspective. He demonstrated what it means to be tempted of the devil and obedient unto God. We have been called to be obedient unto God in all things. God’s Word teaches us how to do this, but we must understand spiritual matters from the heavenly perspective. This month challenge your own perspective of spiritual matters, is it worldly or heavenly?
