WEANING YOUR SOUL (Part 2)

WEANING YOUR SOUL (Part 2)

As a child grows up he needs to be weaned from the breast milk and thus from an undue attachment to his mother. Likewise, a new creation in Christ, a young believer, needs to be weaned from all his former sinful and selfish affections, passions, and attachments.

Every mother pays a price to wean her child, but the rewards outweigh the price. Similarly, the rewards or blessings of weaning your soul infinitely outweigh the sacrifices required and the efforts involved in weaning your soul. Like a weaned child, a weaned soul is always calmed, quiet, and peaceful. A weaned soul is a ploughed, broken and pliable land for God’s Word to bear desired fruits…

WEANING YOUR SOUL (Part 1)

WEANING YOUR SOUL (Part 1)

Before you became a new creation in Christ, your soul has become addicted to sins. Your will, mind and emotions have become well developed and formed in transgression and rebellion to God. Therefore, after your new birth experience, you must make deliberate, diligent and determined efforts to wean your soul from its natural, selfish and sinful ways, cares, addictions, affections, passions, or patterns.

If you fail to wean your soul, you will always struggle to do God’s will, for though your born-again or recreated spirit delights to do God’s will, yet your carnal mind will always protest and resist against God’s will…

BRIDLE YOUR TONGUE (Part 2)

BRIDLE YOUR TONGUE (Part 2)

The human tongue is naturally a fire, a world of iniquity, evil, corrupt, boastful, unruly, and full of deadly poison (Jam. 3:6-8). Though the tongue is a little member of the body, yet it wields great power and influence over the whole body.

If your tongue is left unchecked, untamed or unbridled; it will defile you, render your faith worthless, bring condemnation upon you, and may eventually send you to hell fire (Jam. 1:26). It is therefore vitally necessary for you as a believer to constantly bring your tongue under check or control. The Lord Jesus sternly warns us about the danger of not bridling our tongues…

BRIDLE YOUR TONGUE (Part 1)

BRIDLE YOUR TONGUE (Part 1)

Your religion or faith is completely worthless when you fail to bridle your tongue. Therefore, it is very imperative for you to know how to bridle, tame, or control your tongue. Although the tongue is a little member of the human body, yet it wields a great power and influence on the entire body. Anyone who can bridle or control his tongue can actually control his whole body.

Just as a small bit can control a strong horse and a small rudder can control a large ship, so can your tongue though a little member of your body affects, controls, or influences your whole body…

THE PRICE AND PLACE OF WISDOM

THE PRICE AND PLACE OF WISDOM

God’s Wisdom is hidden in the born-again spirits of the believers. This is why one of the spiritual responsibilities of the Church stated in the Bible is to make known the manifold wisdom of God to the world and even to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.

Although every born-again believer has all the treasures of divine wisdom hidden is his born-again or recreated spirit, yet not all believers are appropriating, enjoying, or manifesting God’s Wisdom. How do you draw from the treasures of divine wisdom within you to handle life’s issues or challenges?

GET WISDOM

GET WISDOM

Wisdom is the principal, chief or main asset to possess in life. If you lack wisdom, you are still poor regardless of your material possessions in life. All that you may possess in life is nothing if wisdom is lacking.

Solomon states, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” (Prov. 4:7 NKJV). Why is it better to have wisdom than to have money! “For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense, but the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.” (Eccl. 7:12 NKJV)…
