Worldly life seeks to find the answer to understand the Presence of Jesus.

Godly life feels the Presence of Jesus to understand the answer.

Worldly sees heaven as a place.

Godly senses heaven as a condition.

OLD TESTAMENT: Isaiah 65:17-25

Worldly: For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.
Godly: For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth within you; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.

 

Worldly sees physical strength from God as temporary.

Godly sees spiritual strength from God as eternal.

PSALM: 118:1-2, 14-24

Worldy: The LORD is my strength and my might; He has become my salvation.
Godly: The Presence of the LORD in me is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.

 

Worldly forgiveness is for symptomatic sins.

Godly forgiveness is for separation which is the cause for all sins.

EPISTLE: Acts 10:34-43

Worldy: Everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through His name.
Godly: Everyone who experiences His Presence receives forgiveness of Sin through His name.

 

Worldly seeks to understand the word.

Godly seeks to experience the word.

GOSPEL: John 20:1-18

Worldly: For as yet they did not understand the scripture, that He must rise from the dead.
Godly: For as yet they had not experienced the scripture, that He must rise from the dead.
