Ephesians 4:17-19So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longerlive as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.They are darkened in their understandingand separated from the life of Godbecause of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.Having lost all sensitivity,they have given themselves over to sensualityso as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.
Break the Ignorance, and make space forthe DivineWisdom..
Colossians 3:16Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with allwisdomthrough psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing toGodwith gratitude in your hearts.
How wretchedis a life in ignorance? What an unnecessary ignorance isthe worldly wisdom? How bad it is to live without any reason?How good it is to live with divine wisdom? How good it feels to be able to have the reference to the Word of God? How good it feels to relate the happenings in life with the Word of God? How good it feels to know the purpose and path of life?
JesusChrist is the source of divine wisdom.. butthere are many peoplewho have not broken the chains of the worldly wisdom, eventhough they are baptized in Christ.Not everyone is able to tastethe goodnessof the word of God. One of the preachers preached, two women (one uneducated, and the other well educated professional) came to him with sickness, and He gave the prayer oil and prayed for both the woman. After the few days the uneducated woman called him and said that she was healed. After a few days the well educated woman called him to say, that she is in the city's best hospital to go through the surgery and asked him to pray for her.
Break the Captivity andWalk with Freedom..
Deuteronomy 5:6 I am theLordyour God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land ofslavery.
How good it feels when the Lord lead the people of Israel out of the captivity and made them an independent nation..?How good it feels when the Lord freed the people of the evil spirits and made them free..?
We parise and worship the Lord who lead the people out of Israel..But in reality when we trun and look at the people standing around us..there are many people in Christ who still leading the life of slavery.. as Christians I feel it is our own responsibility that we take the intiative of freeing us or Praying to God for the freedom God has planned for us.
Break the Curse and be Filled with Blessing..
Deuteronomy 28:1If you fully obey theLordyour God and carefully followall his commandsI give you today, theLordyour God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
How miserable is it to live through the cursed life? How good is a life filled with Blessing?
True that everyone wants the life of Blessing. But asI was reading through the Curses for Disobedience-Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and I was wondering how many peoplewhom I know are living these curses, but still they dont realize the curse that is running over them. They dont even have time in their life to read through this and pray for this. The curse surrounds their life with pains that they cannot think of anything but to the living through the curse. Many people even if you call them to blessing, will say that they are busy living the cursed life and they dont have time to think of any blessing.
Unless we break the Ignorance, Slavery and Curses we cannot make space for Wisdom, Freedom and Blessing..
