A word of wisdom
I am sure that like me, many of you have born witness to some amongst the brethren, whom it seems, obviously think that God only holds them personally privy to certain things, as if they have a monopoly on the things of God. Then there are yet others who are fully aware that what they have, is freely given them of God, and it is their reasonable service to God and their fellow brethren, to freely share in return, that the whole body might be edifyed.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
It is for this cause, and in this spirit, that I share a very wise word from a sister in Christ, that I read on facebook today, as she instructed one of the brethren to a better understanding, as to whether or not God has done away with His moral laws in Christ...
quote: "If you read Hebrews more closely you will see that it is the 'sacrificial law' that has passed away and gone. Because of Calvary we have a once and for all sacrifice now. The Levitical priesthood is gone as well, and we have a great High Priest who sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven, we no longer need the feasts because we can go to the throne of grace daily.
However, God's moral law has not gone anywhere. He does not change and
neither do his standards. In my opinion, this is where the professing church has erred and fallen, even though they talk non stop about grace; the doctrines of demons such as
Predestination, and OSAS, have taken over, and church buildings are full of every kind of leaven. People are not being conformed to the image of Christ." end quote.
(note I added the bold)
I never cease to marvel at how the Lord, in His wisdom uses us all in various ways, and gives us different ways in which to express His eternal truth. Some have the gift of teaching, some a word of wisdom. This quote I believe is a word of wisdom.
The Lord speaks to everyone of His children for their edification and instruction, there is none better than the other. Let none of us ever think more highly of oursleves than we ought, and let us be willing to share unto the edification of the whole body what the Lord freely gives to us all.
