If God is for me . . . who can be against me?

We have received not the spirit of the world . . .

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB





The Faith Walk


[part 4 of 4]


*____I Corinthians 2:12 declares, "But we received not the spirit of the world (that is the spirit of the natural man( but the spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that are freely given us of God.”



____Our spirits, that have received their life from God, are able to know the things of God: while the natural minds, dominated by the senses, are unable to know the things that are freely given to us in the Redemptive work of Christ. The natural man cannot understand the expression "in Christ or ;what it means, but the God-taught. recreated spirit grasps it with eager joy. We can see now that the greatest need of the present day church is the renewing of the minds of the believers, and of the education and development of the recreated spirit.



____The average Christian today is carnal, or sense ruled. They are babes in Christ. They walk after the manner of men, or the senses. They have never learned the way of love.



____They are full of talk, but they are not doers of the Word. Their wisdom is the wisdom of natural men. They are ever striving, but never arriving. There is only one way to help these people, and that is to teach them how to take their place in Christ, to become doers of the Word, and not hearers only.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
