TEXT: Isaiah 1:10-15
KEY VERSE: John 4:23 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
The spiritual man is empowered by the Holy Spirit to work for God. He is not doing it by himself. When you start to murmur or complain, it is because you are losing spiritual insight.
Moses was complaining that the workload was weighing him down. This was because he didn’t know the magnitude of the power of the Holy Spirit in his life. The Lord said, “Okay take seventy of the elders and I will take of the spirit I put in you and pour it upon them.” You are doing this assignment by the Holy Spirit, so why are you murmuring?
It is because you are not seeing things from spiritual perspective. Do you know that the more the work the more the grace? The spiritual man knows this and that is why the bible says, God seeks such that will understand things in a spiritual way, to worship Him. The Lord seeks such to follow Him because Satan will mean nothing in your presence. Evil will mean nothing because you know that evil shall eventually turn to good for you. Romans 8:28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.
The Lord is seeking for spiritual men and women to follow Him, not these dancers that are dancing up and down in half naked clothes in the churches. He is not seeking for churches filled with music, but He seeks for regenerated people, who understand Him in a spiritual way. Such people are not bound by denominationalism.
They know that the church Jesus brought to the world is one. They know that what matters in life is Jesus, not any General Overseer or General Superintendent. They know if today they die, relationship with man is finished and what matters is God. So, what is paramount is to do the will of God. My food is to do the will of God that sent me and to finish His work. The Lord is seeking those with spiritual understanding to worship Him. Get this understanding and worship God in spirit and in truth.
Thought for the day: The spiritual man wins the heart of God.
Song for the day: The grace of God is sufficient unto me…..
Bible reading for the day: Proverbs 9-10; 1 Corinthians 15:1-32
