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

SPIRITUALITY CAN CHANGE OUR LIFE

Thinking Worldly, God delights in what we do.

Thinking Godly, God delights in who we are.

OLD TESTAMENT: Isaiah 62:1-5

Worldly: The LORD delights in you.
Godly: The LORD delights spiritually within you.

 

Worldly seeks the light of knowing in the head.

Godly seeks the spiritual light of inner Wisdom from the heart.

PSALM: 36:5-10

Worldy: In your light we see light.
Godly: In your light we spiritually see light.

 

Worldly does not understand spirituality.

Godly is spirituality.

EPISTLE: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 ("gifts" are added)

Worldy: Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.
Godly: Now concerning spirituality, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.

 

Worldly seeks the meaning of physical signs.

Godly sees the meaning of spiritual signs.

GOSPEL: John 2:1-11 (“signs” or “miracles” in Greek are an operation of power.”)

Worldly: Jesus did this, the first of His signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.
Godly: Jesus did this, the first of His spiritual signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed His spiritual glory; and his disciples believed in Him.
