SATURDAY, MARCH 7
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:9
Jesus died to give us an inheritance! Let’s note the Bible is equally clear about choices we make that disinherit us from the promises. 1 Corinthians 6:9 says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators or idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.” How many Christians either don’t know that promise or don’t believe it, or don’t act on it so whenever they go vote, they go support politicians who champion policies that will actual disinherit them. Do we not know the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Having once qualified for God’s promises, why choose to disinherit ourselves? How many of our actions will disinherit us? People who say they love us but will lead us down a path that will disinherit us are liars and deceivers. Ministers who qualify are clearly building their own kingdom. Be aware, some we might even discover are in the pulpit! What are we currently doing? We ought to survey our life and choices and address those things that may somewhere, someplace disinherit us. That is a tough statement but one worth asking God to show us anything we are doing that will sever us from our inheritance. ‘Lord, show me. Holy Spirit I invite You to shine Your spotlight on the choices I am making. You are the Spirit of Truth and I welcome more truth in my life. You have been put in charge of my inheritance; therefore You are my discernment and know what will disinherit me. God show me. Lord, may we be saints in relationship with the Spirit of Truth daily listening and ready to obey. Show me truth from error.’ By accepting our heavenly language and using tongues we get to know the Holy Spirit and build up His communication link within. The same phone line He uses to speak to us is the one we use when praying in the Spirit. Praying in the Spirit strengthens that phone line. It is the most practical thing God has ever given the church. Praying in the Spirit and developing intimacy with the Holy Spirit is of immeasurable value and the benefits are beyond description!
