June 3 – Be Spiritually Minded

Daily Bible Life

The Sadducees attempted to trick Jesus Christ with a question about the resurrection. The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection, but the Pharisees did. The Sadducees asked, “If there is a resurrection, who would be the husband of a woman who had several previous marriages before she died?” However, Jesus Christ corrected the skeptics and said, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching” (Matthew 22:29-33).

 

Lesson:

Anyone who intends to enjoy the benefits of God must be ready to live by faith. He/she can’t be found questioning the matter of faith, because “Faith is the substance of what we hope for and the evidence of what we have not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1). It is virtually impossible to utilize human perceptions to understand spiritual matters. Ultimately, we will be better off serving God by faith to enjoy his benefits than to question God and his ways, which could provoke his wrath! No carnal person will be able to make sense out of a spiritual matter, because “God is a Spirit, and those who serve him must do so in Spirit and in truth!” (John 4:24).

If you think about it, there’s no aspect of spirituality that will make perfect sense to a natural person, unless he/she delves into the realm of the spirit to have proper understanding! For example, an unbeliever may question the conception of Mary, the mother of Jesus. However, it takes a spiritual person to understand that she was conceived by the Holy Spirit. Also, the matter of salvation is an inexplicable experience that takes a person with a spiritual mind to understand. As a matter of fact, for anyone to enjoy God’s blessings on earth, and also, qualify for heaven, he must believe the Bible and allow the Holy Spirit to rule him.

Prayer:

Dear God, please make me a spiritual person who lives by faith. Keep me humble to accept the teachings of the Bible and believe them. Help me to live by faith, so that I can enjoy your optimum blessings as your child! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
