Under Gods Command


1 Corinthians 02:14-15 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment

Non-Christians cannot understand God, and they cannot grasp the concept that God’s Spirit lives in believers. Don’t expect most people to approve of or understand your decision to follow Christ. It all seems so silly to them. Just as a tone-deaf person cannot appreciate fine music, the person who rejects God cannot understand God’s beautiful message. With the lines of communication broken, he or she won’t be able to hear what God is saying to him or her.

We must not remain silent, however, using others’ difficulty in understanding as an excuse. We are still one of God’s communication channels. We must be alert to opportunities. Another person’s question may be evidence that God’s Spirit is drawing him or her to the point of decision.

Lets Bring it Home: How would you respond today if someone asked you about your faith?
