Pentecost XXII: Bottom Line Spirituality

Unlocking the Gospel Secrets of Spirituality

Discover what difference reading these scriptures in a Worldly or a Godly way make.

THE LANGUAGE OF THE SPIRIT

Spiritual language is natural, conscious and innate. It is not something we learn, it is something we discover.  This language is not rationally taught but consciously remembered.

Take time to sense the godly Presence within when a spiritual word is added to the rational, worldly reading of scripture.

Worldly walks in the physical world to find the Presence. Godly opens to the spiritual Presence to walk in the physical world.

OLD TESTAMENT: Jeremiah 31:9

Worldly: I will lead them to walk by rivers of flowing water and in a straight path.
Godly: I will lead them to walk by rivers of flowing spiritual water and in a straight spiritual path. (Also see John 7:38)

 

Worldly speaks of the physical temporal works of God. Godly speaks of the spiritual lasting works of God.

PSALM: 126

Worldy: The LORD has done great things for us, and we rejoiced.
Godly: The LORD has done great spiritual things for us, and we rejoiced.

 

Worldly separates physically from those who commit sin to stay spiritual. Godly stays spiritual so as not to separate themselves from the sinner.

EPISTLE: Hebrews 7:26

Worldy: Separated from sinners
Godly: Separated spiritually from sinners

 

Worldly wants to see the physical person. Godly seeks to know the spiritual person.

GOSPEL: Mark 10:46-52

Worldly: "Rabbi, I want to see."
Godly: "Rabbi, I want to see spiritually."
