This is an older post that I feel like I needed to see once again. Please feel free to comment.
“We are all born ignorant, but it takes hard work to remain stupid.” Ben Franklin
Why do so many of us remain stupid? Oh, not that we know nothing, but that most of what we know, is meaningless, temporal, not eternal.
1 Corinthians 14: 38.
“But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”
So many reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We must set it before them, if they refuse it? They will remain ignorant.
Then we have those who have gladly accepted the Gospel, yet reject much of it, that they do not understand. These people remain stupid.
They have rejected the best of the Gospel. Romans 14:17
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.“
Oh, we know, we are the righteousness of God, (2 Corinthians 5:21), in Christ Jesus, we sing we have peace like a river, (Isaiah 66:12), but do we really experience joy in the Holy Ghost?
Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 3, what true ministry should be. First, we must teach the New Covenant, it isn’t the Law that should guide us, but the Spirit.
We need to recognize His leading, council, and guidance.
Learn to walk in the Spirit, not the flesh, to put on the Spiritual as we take off the Natural.
Allow the Holy Spirit to write, God’s law on our hearts (Jer. 31:31–34; Heb. 8:8–12). The Holy Spirit will give us a love for God’s moral standards and the power to obey them. (Rom. 8:4; 1 Cor. 7:19)
We must, realize Christ’s blood makes us righteous, it is just like we never sinned, we are Justified, we are called to separate ourselves out for His service, to become Sanctified.
This is started in our Salvation, but we must Transform and Renew our minds, by studying and obeying the Word of God.
2 Corinthians 3: 6. It is Jesus:
“Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
We have been delivered from our bodies of sin and death, and given the power to overcome temptations. The Power to become true children of God, able to walk in victory, even as it looks like we are defeated.
Galatians 1: 4. It was Jesus:
“Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Thanks for visiting, come back soon.
Know, you are loved.
