Encouragement From
The Word

August 30

Spiritual
Greek: πνευματικός
Transliteration: pneumatikos
Definition: Spiritual, pertaining to the Spirit, spiritual person, pertaining or relating to the influences of the Holy Spirit.

1For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established - that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.2These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

3Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

4Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant.5Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.6Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.

The Supplied Life by Bill Freeman

The Supplied Life has been republished and available for purchase for a suggested donation of $12.00.

The very nature of the Christian life requires that we live a life of being daily supplied. We begin this The Supplied Lifelife by receiving, and we go on by receiving. The Christian life is a supplied life. It is a life that has already been lived out and preservedfor us in the Holy Spirit. Now, that "lived out life" is received and supplied to us. The Christian life is not dependent on our own resources or any potential in ourselves. It has everything to do with the rich resources of Another life. Indeed, The Supplied Life is Christ Himself. He has been prepared by God for us and is now being supplied and furnished to us. The way God does this is by organically joining us as branches to Christ, the true Vine (John 15:1, 4-5). Thus, the supplied life comes by abiding as a branch in the Vine. Our daily need is to spend time with the Lord cultivating our life of abiding in Him so as to receive all the riches of His Person and work.

Here is the daily devotional for May 21st

God's Opportunity

"But Jesus Looked at them and said to them, With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."Matthew 19:26

The highest revelation of the church is to see that the church is Christ (1 Cor. 12:12). This is how the Father sees the church. This is how the apostles saw the church, and this is how we should see the church. THe vision of the church as Christ is truly a heavenly vision. The vision reduces us to Christ and becomes the governing factor controlling our daily life. By this vision, we will be escorted to Christ over and over again.

We need to see in the Bible the divine principle of measurement that governs God's relationship with man. God works with fallen man on the basis of this principle. First, He measures man according to His standard. Then this divine measurement becomes a demand upon man. This demand, in turn, reveal's man shortness and failure. Finally, man's realization of his failure is intended by God to escort him to Christ. In other words, the measurement and the subsequent demand of God is for one thing - to lead us to Christ to experience Another life.

God's desire to be man's life-supply. The way He fulfills this desire is by first measuring man to expose his shortness. By this measuring He escorts man out of his own resources into God Himself as his boundless supply. Thus, in God's economy the measuring Word of God is always intended to produce a standard beyond man's ability and capacity. Indeed, God's Word with its divine measurement and high demand, which far exceeds man's natural capacity, is the same Word that escorts man to God Himself over and over again. It is this principle that we see governing God's relationship with fallen man, both in the Old Testament under the law and in the New Testament under the higher demand of the law revealed in Mathew 5-7. Indeed, man's extremity becomes God's opportunity.
