Looking Inward & Outward (With the goggle of Faith) – Part 6
1. When we attempt to look at others with the eyes or enlightenment of Charity, we would see differently! With this eyes (understanding), we can prefer others, seek things in their interest, believe all things, hope all things and endure all things. With it, the log in their eyes will look like a speck (Isa. 11:3-4, Phil. 2:3-4, 1 Cor. 13:4-7).
2. Any definition or expression of the manifestation of God’s sons that doesn’t start and end with meekness and lowliness, is of no profit to its peddlers or to their audience, because it can’t sight or defeat sin in the first place.
3. The devil uses two subtle weapons to stop our migration into light; darkness within and without, and if we don’t clearly understand the counsels of faith and love on this, these weapons become effective (Ps. 18:28, Acts 26:18).
4. Light is sweet to the eyes, and also is liberty to a soul whose warfare over a season has just been accomplished. There is always an unseen profiting behind every heavenly approved trial, so we can dare count it all joy (Eccl. 11:7, Jam. 1:2).
5. Most times, our lack of peace is traceable to the enemy’s success in getting us to take thoughts concerning our life or concerning an expectation that shouldn’t have earned or become our meditation in the first place.
6. The strength of this world is in it’s ability to compellingly teach and present it’s hope and reward to men. The strength of the gospel of Christ is in it’s ability to turn a soul from darkness to light – and thereby prepare a soul for an eternal reward; even via the gospel of God (Acts 26:18, Rom. 1:1/16).
7. To live by the Faith of the Son of God is to live according to a superior civilization that once resided only in God, which was later inherited by Christ, then Paul, and then the apostles of the Lamb (Gal. 1:15-16, Rom. 2:16). It is to do so until that civilization becomes a new possession to us; even our very life (Gal. 2:20). It is to live (walk) by the wisdom and power of Christ, until our feet gives a clear witness against our former worldly walk (Eph. 2:2, 4:17-24).
8. The fact that we came into privileges, increases or provisions at some seasons of life doesn’t mean we had the spiritual maturity to handle it (1Cor. 6:12). The faithful saints of Genesis 5 could handle seasons with outward increase because they had lived (by faith) and thereby acquired the stature needed to handle such increase.
9. When a believer claims he has no darkness, he is claiming he has become a fully formed son who through the tutorials of grace, lived by Christ’s divine power, inherited the light of God’s glory and became abode for the Son and Father (1Jn. 1:5-10). He is claiming he has entered into God or perfect light (Jn. 1:18, 13:3)
10. When you would rather be pampered by those who have spiritual oversight over you, they would have to resort to speaking to you in parables rather than plainly, and that subsequently would come at the cost of some unfruitful years to you.
