DAY 21 FRIDAY: FEBRUARY 2020

A CHRISTIAN SHOULD ALWAYS SPEAK GOD’S LANGUAGE!

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual (1 Corinthians 2:12-13).

Every Christian should learn to always speak God’s language in life. He should not speak the language of the world but of God in life. The Bible says in the opening text that now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to always speak His own language in life forever.

God’s language is purely based on faith in life. He is not moved by sight nor by emotions but by faith. He sees things with the eyes of faith and speaks by faith in life. That is why the Bible says in Romans 4:17, “As it is written, ‘I have made you a father of many nations’ in the presence of Him whom he believed- God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did.” Therefore, the language of God is indeed spoken and intensely backed up by faith in life. Every Christian should learn to always speak God’s language by faith in life forever.

The language of God is full of wisdom and spiritual understanding in life. It is so because it is deeply rooted in His Word of life. That is the reason why it is a mystery and hidden wisdom from the world in life. The world can never understand it no matter the academic degrees and philosophies. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:7, “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.” In fact, the wisdom of God which is a hidden mystery to the world enables a Christian to always speak God’s own language by faith in life forever.

Daily Tip: The wisdom of God is a mystery to the world because it is deeply rooted in His Word and enables a Christian to always speak God’s own language by faith in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing (1 Corinthians 2:6).
