DON’T DROP YOUR BIBLE
(Live The Spirit-Ruled Life)
TO THE BIBLE
2 Peter 1:5-6 NIV “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness.”
Alisha was so angry with Maya, another Christian sister, and as they exchanged words, she said to her, “One more word from you, I will drop this Bible, and smack your face!” At the time she spoke, she wasn’t holding a physical Bible, but what she meant was, “I’d set aside whatever the Bible says and hit you.” Hey, what does that show? It shows the Word wasn’t yet in her heart; it was still just in her Bible. You see, when the Word of God is in you, you can’t say you’ll drop it, because it’s your life!
Every Christian should live a Spirit-ruled and Spirit controlled life—a life filled with God. That’s what Christianity is: Christ alive and at work in you, such that you’re always under the sway and regulation of the Spirit and not such things as anger, wrath and malice. Don’t be controlled by your feelings or emotions; be Spirit-ruled.
It makes no difference how angry you are; hold yourself in; it’s called in 2 Peter 1:6 “egkrateia” (Greek). The Bible says, ““Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath” (Ephesians 4:26). In other words, “Manage your anger.” You can be tempted to be angry, tempted to act in a way that’s inappropriate for a Christian, but when you walk in the Spirit, you’ll not fulfil the lusts of the flesh.
How do you walk in the Spirit? It’s by walking in the light of God’s Word. You’re in Christ now; walk in love. Be Spirit ruled and Spirit-controlled at all times. Read our opening verse again and notice how often we should be filled with the Spirit—always! When you’re filled with the Spirit, you have a Spirit-controlled life. Hallelujah!
Romans 8:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 4:1 NIV
I’m full of the Spirit. I’m patient and full of divine wisdom; I express the beauty and excellence of divinity through my words and actions every day, being continually led of the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
