Pentecost XXV: 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.

We learn our spiritual language as we learn our worldly language by speaking it.

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

Worldly: to be written in the Book depends on what you did legally. Godly: to be written in the Book depends on who you are gracefully.

OLD TESTAMENT: Daniel 12:2

Worldly: Everyone who is found in the Book.
Godly:

Everyone who is spiritually found in the Book.

Worldly seeks physical protection against the world. Godly seeks spiritual protection in the world.

PSALM: 16

Worldy: Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
Godly: Spiritually protect me, O God, for in my heart in you I take refuge.

 

The worldly, to follow the law, memorize them. The Godly, to follow the law, discern spiritually the Love of God.

EPISTLE: Hebrews 10:16

Worldy: I will put my laws in their hearts.
Godly: I will put my spiritual laws in their hearts.

 

Worldly depend on material things for their spirituality. Godly depend on their spirituality to define material things.

GOSPEL: Mark 13:1-8

Worldly: "Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!"
Godly: "Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!" (Teacher replies) "So?"
