Bible Study Plan 2019
For today we read:
-Food for thought day 13-
•1 Corinthians 9:27
The lack of self control has caused many not to experience the power of God’s blessings in their lives. Such people have no value for spiritual things. They are profane.
Esau lost his right as the first born because of food. Adam and Eve lost their right to the devil because of the same issue.
When we struggle with self control it’s because we are not yielding to God’s will for our lives. Self control is the fruit of the Spirit and is produced automatically in our lives as we yield to God’s Word.
Man is not just a body, but man is a spirit having a soul and living in a body. It’s very important that we learn to invest into that which last. That is our spirit and soul more than our body.
The question is: “How do we invest to our spirit?”
Answer: Bible Study, listening to Christian sermons, reading inspired Christian literature books as led by the Spirit in combination with prayer and fasting.
Esau missed it because he chose to invest on something that is temporary (his body) and neglects that which is permanent and carries the blessings (his spirit).
The birthright is the privileges or rights we all have by being born into a particular family. In the case of Esau is the privileges or rights he had over his brother by being the first born. But Esau had no value for it and sold it to his brother because of a temporary hunger.
The day we got born again, accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior we partake of the same privileges and rights that Jesus is having because we now belong to a new family called Christ. But we can forfeit these privileges by allowing our carnal appetite to rule over our spirit. We must learn to feed and train ourselves more on spiritual things, so that our flesh will not dictate to us and cause us to be profane as Esau.
Refuse to be Esau and build up yourself with God’s Word.
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
Think and choose to come under God’s dicsipline!!!!
