1 Thessalonians 3:10
“Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?”
What is lacking in our faith?
My first post on this scripture, I concentrated on the lack of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I wish to dig a little deeper, in this post:
In our Denominations we have created a closed system. Baptists only hear other Baptists. Methodists, more Methodists, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Pentecostals, We only hear from our own.
In our smaller Churches, we only hear our Pastor, or Sunday School Teachers. This causes the Body to be lacking much, in Faith.
We lack: Diversity of thought.
We lack: New Revelation Knowledge, new to us personally or a Revelation for the body.
Understanding, or Seeing in the Spirit as well as in the Natural.
Romans 2: 28-29
“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
We must learn to see, hear and act on the Spirits Guidance and Wisdom. We lean towards Man’s Wisdom, as it seems good to us, but, Is It God’s way and will? Man’s Wisdom and Ways are often contrary to God’s.
Any one of us can gain Godly Wisdom, Revelation, and Understanding of the Word, If we learn to study and believe the Word. Unfortunately, we do not study as we should, we expect the Pastor to study and reveal God’s Will and Way, just like the Hebrews, In the time of Moses.
The people said Moses, you speak to and hear from, the Lord, and you tell us, what He wants and we will do it.
We soon lose our Faith in the Lord. Without a personal relationship, the Lord does not seem to care, or be counted on in our times of need.
Romans 3: 18.
“There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
What is lacking in our Faith?
