Pentecost XXIV: 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.

We know the Wisdom of our spiritual language is true when we compare it with our worldly language.

Worldly waits for the word of God to hear it. Godly discerns the word of God moments by moment.

OLD TESTAMENT: 1 Kings 17:8

Worldly: The Word of the Lord came to Elijah.
Godly:

The Word of the Lord came to Elijah spiritually.
(See 1 Kings 19:28 "Still" meaning silent)

Worldly sings praises to get into God's Presence. Godly sings praises because they are in God’s Presence.

PSALM: 146

Worldy: I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God all my life long.
Godly: I will consciously praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God from my heart all my life long.

 

Worldly waits for God. Godly opens up for God.

EPISTLE: Hebrews 9:28

Worldy: to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him.
Godly: to save those who are eagerly waiting spiritually for Him.

 

Worldly watches outside to see the physical. Godly watches inside to discern the spiritual.

GOSPEL: Mark 12:38-44

Worldly: Jesus said, "Watch out for the teachers of the law."
Godly: Jesus said, "Watch out for the teaching in the law."
