Advent III: 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 rejoices outwardly to get into their heart.

Godly gets into their heart to rejoice.

OLD TESTAMENT: Zephaniah 3:14-20

Worldly: Rejoice and exult with all your heart.
Godly: Spiritually rejoice and exult with all your heart.

Feel the difference between Worldly and Godly enemies:

“The Lord has turned away your enemies.”

Worldly seeks physical strength and might.

Godly seeks spiritual strength and might.

PSALM: 85

Worldy: The LORD GOD is my strength and my might.
Godly: The LORD GOD in my heart is my strength and my might.

Feel the difference between Worldly and Godly Presence of God:

“Great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”

Worldly sees the Lord in a physical position.

Godly sees the Lord as a spiritual Presence.

EPISTLE: Philippians 1:3-11

Worldy: The Lord is near.
Godly: The Lord is always spiritually near.

Feel the difference between Worldly or Godly worry:

“Do not worry about anything.”

Worldly sees the chaff as physical sins.

Godly sees the chaff as spiritual separation from God.

GOSPEL: Luke 3:7-18

Worldly: The chaff He will burn
Godly: The spiritual chaff He will burn

Feel the difference between Worldly or Godly fruits:

“Bear fruits worthy of repentance.”
