SPIRITUAL CHILDREN.

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*SPIRITUAL CHILDREN.*


*Scripture Treasure.*

1 Cor 2:14 *But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

Romans 8:5 *For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.*


*Scripture Commentaries.*

There are two types of people.

They are the natural man, and the other is the spiritual man.

Using the man as an illustration, Paul is not being gender specific but refers also to the female gender.

So, the natural man is also the natural woman. So also the spiritual man is the spiritual woman.

The natural man is unconverted, and the spiritual man is the converted soul.

When Paul wrote in Rom 8:5 that they who are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh, he was referring to the natural man. He is unregenerate. He is not born-agan, and he can not walk in the Spirit he has not surrendered to.

The spiritual man is regenerated. He is born again. He is spiritually renewed.

It is, however, important to note that while a spiritual man may have these virtues, he can be carnal yet born again.

Paul warned the Corinthians Christians that *For ye are yet carnal:....."*, 1 Cor 3:3.

Paul was telling that though they have the Holy Spirit, they are still living selfishly and not growing into Christlike lives.

Paul called the Galatians foolish, asking them, *"Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?*, Gal 3:1-3.

Paul tells us here that you may be a Christian but have carnal behaviors.

When a Christian is carnal, he/she shares the same works of the flesh with the natural man.

We can not speak of them as spiritual people, but as carnal, like “babes in Christ”.

When you are a babe, you have failed to digest the spiritual food/meat fed you all these years.

The danger of a carnal Christian is that he/she will end up as a natural man.

If your behavior is in no way different from the natural man, you are carnal!

You are not Heaven bound.

You are not Kingdom minded unless there is a change in your life.

Choose to be a spiritual child.


*Remorse corner.*

If your behavior is carnal, no matter how many years you claim to be in Christ, you are not older than a babe.


*Call to Word action.*

You must grow by the day and by the year. 2 Pet 3: 18 *But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

What are you doing with the spiritual meal fed you every day?


*Prayer.*

Lord, help me to live as a spiritual child of Christ, in Jesus name.


Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.


God bless you.
