Hi, I pray all of you had a blessed week and always remember if you are in a place where you are Loved, Honored and Respected, could be a job, a marriage, a friendship, whatever it may be, stay there do not be tempted away for this is a gift from God.
There was a classic movie years ago, I believe it was back in the 60’s called The World the Flesh and the devil. Something just put that in my head this morning, I do not even remember what this movie was about but when it came into my head this morning I wanted to write about how the title of this movie has to do with man and how we live our lives.
As any believer knows if you live for the world and of the flesh you are living for the devil. For living for the world and of the flesh is basically the same thing. As a saved christian we should be living in the Spirit. In this life we live in the world but we should not be living for the world and living for the flesh, those things will only get us to the devil and hell.
Sometime we slip up and make a mistake but we must ask for forgiveness and repent. At church today the Pastor asked of the congregation what are some of the gifts God has given to us? A lot of answers were shouted out but the one I was looking to hear the one I thought would have been the first reply never was said. This is the one of the most precious things our God does for us when we make that mistake and plunge into the world and the flesh.. that my friends is forgiveness that in my mind is one of the most precious of all gifts our God gives us.
I was really taken by the sermon this morning we looked at Exodus chapter 33 para 12-13 I will quote part of this scripture Moses is talking to God saying to The Lord how he wanted to see Gods glory and here is a small part of what the Lord said to him Exodus chapter 33 para 23 And I will take away my hand and thou shall see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.
Now if you want to read Gods full reply and why moses asked the question read Exodus Chapter 33 para 12-13. But why I just quoted the last section is as my Pastor pointed out, we as humans will not see Gods face and how he broke it down is when we ask something of God we don’t see him coming but we who know the word of God always sees his back if we fully understand Gods word we see his back, we can look back and see the miracle that God performed for us, we don’t see him coming, oh no we don’t see his face, but if we know him we will see his back, we can look back and see the miracles he has performed for us.
Living of the world and the flesh will get us nothing but death and hell, living in faith and in Spirit will get us Salvation and when you know Gods word you will see his back.
Have a blessed week and if the Lord willing, speak with you soon.
