Scripture of the Day - March 9, 2012

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

We, as Christians, allow too much of the world into our lives and that is one of the reasons why we don't have the same power as the first century Christians. We are to have NOTHING to do with the unproductive works of darkness, not even to talk about it. Evidently, there is a part of NO that we don't understand!

The works of darkness produce nothing good, so why would we want anything to do with that? Our carnal nature, which is contrary to God's holy nature, is why.

Folks,we had better be careful which nature we allow to rule us.

Paul warns us that to be carnally minded is death; and they that are in the flesh CANNOT please God. Rom.8:6-8 No wonder we don't have the same power...we are too much in the flesh. No wonder we don't have peace in our minds...we are too much in the flesh.

...but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Rom. 8:6

Do you want the power of God in your life? Do you want the peace of God in your life? Then get spiritually minded and don't allow the works of darkness in your life at all!
