KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:63 KJV” It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
Our key scripture is one of the greatest revelations from the word of God. It tells us about the two main forces in this life.
These forces are the physical called the flesh, and the spiritual called the Spirit. It reveals also that, the spiritual rules over the physical. The physical is a product of the spiritual.
Heb 11:3 KJV” Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
The fall of man was simply a departure from the influence of the Spirit that gives life, to be ruled and influenced by the physical, that is the flesh which produces death.
Men in their blind state oppose the Spirit, and try to completely claim it is not necessary, only to be controlled by their senses.
The pain and the degradation in this life comes from this wrong choice. The scripture says, the physical or the flesh profits nothing. The ‘nothing’ it gives is revealed by the scripture as death. Rom 8:6 KJV “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” How do we relate, contact or fellowship with the Spirit which makes and gives life? The answer from the scripture is through the word of God. The word of God is Spirit. The word is full of life. Nothing functions in the physical without it.
The worse thing to do to yourself is to neglect the word of God.
It is a self-imposed destruction.
The control of either the flesh or the control of the word is a choice between death and life.
Deut 30:15 KJV” See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;”
Dear one refuse to be deceived with the world as they rebel against the word. Choose to be totally submitted to the word of God. Make it your greatest delight. Those who delight and meditate on it are like a tree planted by living waters. They yield their fruits in their season. Their leaves does not wither. Whatsoever they do will prosper. Psalms 1:2,3.
Whenever you meditate on the scriptures it is actually a visit with God.
The word in your heart, is life in you, it is God in you and it is light in you. Doing the word is God in action through you. It is also life at work through you. The scripture says, to be given to the word makes you complete, and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly furnished unto every good work. 2 Tim 3:17 AMP.
THOUGHT: LIVING IN THE WORD, IS A CHOICE TO STAY IN THE LIGHT
Joshua 1:8 KJV “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
Psalms 119:105 KJV NUN. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
