Advent II: 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

Jesus took our words and created His own spiritual, scriptural language. Spiritual language is innate and consciously felt, not read to be learned rationally. Translate the worldly language into godly language and feel the difference spiritual makes.

Worldly seeks their physical beauty.

Godly seeks God’s spiritual beauty.

OLD TESTAMENT: Baruch 5:1-9

Worldly: Take off the garment of your sorrow and put on the beauty of the glory from God.
Godly: Take off the garment of your sorrow in your heart by putting on the spiritual beauty of the glory from God.

Feel the difference between Worldly and Godly Splendor:

“God will show your splendor everywhere under heaven.”

Worldly seeks restoration of material fortunes.

Godly seeks restoration of spiritual fortunes.

PSALM: 126

Worldy: Restore our fortunes, Lord
Godly: Restore our spiritual fortunes, Lord

Feel the difference between Worldly and Godly Works of God:

“The Lord has done great things.”

Worldly remembers what God has done for them physically.

Godly remembers what God has done for them spiritually.

EPISTLE: Philippians 1:3-11

Worldy: I thank my God every time I remember you.
Godly: I thank my God every time I remember you spiritually.

Feel the difference between Worldly or Godly works of God:

“The one who began a good work among you”

Worldly wants to hear the word of God physically.

Godly hears the Word of God spiritually.

GOSPEL: Luke 3:1-6

Worldly: The word of God came to John.
Godly: The spiritual word of God came to John.

Feel the difference between Worldly or Godly seeing salvation:

“All flesh shall see the salvation of God”
