Advent IV: Bottom Line Spirituality

Unlocking the Gospel Secrets of Spirituality

Discover what difference reading these scriptures in a Worldly or a Godly way make.


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 looks for physical feeding.

Godly looks for spiritual feeding.

OLD TESTAMENT: Micah 5:2-5a

Worldly: He shall feed his flock in the strength.
Godly: He shall feed his flock with spiritual strength.

Feel the difference between Worldly and Godly security:

“They shall live secure.”

Worldly looks for peace through physical restoration.

Godly looks for Peace through spiritual restoration.

PSALM: 80:1-7

Worldy: Restore us, O God.
Godly: Spiritually restore us, O God.

Feel the difference between being saved Worldly and Godly:

“that we may be saved”

Worldly doing the will of God is in the Law.

Godly doing God’s will is spiritually from the heart.

EPISTLE: Hebrews 10:5-10

Worldy: I have come to do your will.
Godly: I have come do your spiritual will.

Feel the difference between being sanctified Worldly or Godly:

“it is by God's will that we have been sanctified.”

Worldly seeks immediate physical favor.

Godly seeks lasting spiritual favor.

GOSPEL: Luke 1:39-45

Worldly: He has looked with favor.
Godly: He has looked with spiritual favor.

Feel the difference between Worldly and Godly hunger:

“He has filled the hungry with good things.”
