Word for Today: The natural man does NOT understand the things of the Spirit.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” ( 1Corinthian 2:14).
Blessed NEW week.
Unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven ( John 3:5). It’s NOT easy for the natural man to understand the things of the Spirit. How would you expect a natural man to love his enemies? Certain things can never happen. Only the Holy Spirit can accomplish them. Receive Jesus Christ into your heart and be transformed. Jesus said :
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” ( Matthew 5:44)
Brethren, it sounds rational and logical to react with negative emotions, anger and bad word in retaliation when we feel insulted, whether the allegations are true or false. It sounds logical to curse our enemies. However, this is not what the Word of God (JESUS) is asking us to do. Truly, it’s difficult for the natural man to bless his enemies. Only a regenerated person filled with the Holy Spirit of God can accomplish this.
Apostle Paul also stressed this teaching in his epistle to the Romans:
“Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep” ( Romans 12:14-15).
Further down, he added:
“Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:17-18).
St Luke gospel also admonished:
“Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you” (Luke 6:28).
Be spiritual in your thoughts, words and actions. Those things that are impossible with men are possible with God.
“But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man” (1Corinthians 2:15).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word. Be knowledgeable and wise. Be enlightened.
Become a DISCIPLE, AMBASSADOR and a MISSIONARY for Jesus Christ henceforth.
Ensure you think no evil against anyone.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Be compassionate, merciful and kind to one another.
There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to stay connected to the Word daily in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Blood of Jesus. Blood of Jesus
