Spiritual Truths

Spiritual Truths

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.  1st Corinthians 2:13  NIV

 

They sat down in the poolside cafeteria to have a drink.   As they did, they became aware of the discussion from a table next to them.  A guest was urging a staff member to become a Christian.  For the first time, they listened to the sales pitch from the unbeliever´s point of view.  The argument for conversion was an appeal to human wisdom.  Nothing spiritual was being mentioned.

For a long time, the silent believers struggled with their own failure to step out and share their faith that day.  They also struggled with the thought of conveying words without the power and mystery of Spirit in them.  Christians above all should be connected to and overflowing with an amazing and unexplainable Power from above.  We can share information that may help explain what is going on in and around us.  But our message is definitely not one of human wisdom!  How might we activate the Spirit´s Presence and power into our lives today?  Would it help to lay down everything else and seek the Holy Spirit with enough honesty and zeal that we and those around us can see the results of Presence of God in us today?

 

Dear Lord,

Pour out so much of Your Spirit upon us that those around will want to come to know You too!  Rather than human wisdom, let us share an awareness of Your Presence, Your glory and Your grace, we pray!

Amen
