Short Reads to Stimulate Long Thoughts

AWAKE, OH SPIRITUAL MAN

Friday 01-27-2017 1 Corinthians 3:1-23 QT
1 Corinthians 3:1-4
1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to infants in Christ.
2 …even now you are not yet able,
3 … For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?
4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not mere men?
Terry, why do you still live according to the flesh? You constantly compare yourself to others, you evaluate your potential on the basis of your flesh’s short commings and you give into self-pity rather than rely on the revelation of Christ’s presence and power in you. It is not who you think you are, but who I have revealed, who you are – act on the basis of FAITH in My Faithfulness toward you. In Me, you should not act like a mere man.
