Proverbs 19 10-19-18

If we apply God’s Word to our lives, we will receive His Power and Presence to carry it out. His will over ours.

Proverbs 19:3 A man’s own folly ruins his life, yet his heart rages against the LORD.

Folly is doing something contrary to God’s design and will. He has made His will plainly available to us in His Word. His Will for us is to walk in step with Him enjoying close fellowship with Him, being obedient to His direction, and encouraging others to do the same.

Our society is caught up in self-gratification to the point that we live isolated lives doing our own thing. God calls us as His Body to live in unity and close fellowship with each other. The only thing we get to take to heaven is our relationships. I reckon we’d better work on them!

Being One In Christ:

  1. A Holy Desire-God wants us to be one even as He and Christ are One (John 17:20-23); we can be one through His Spirit (Eph. 4:3)!
  2. A Biblical Desire-God states in His Word that He wants us to be unified in Him (John 14:20, 17:23).
  3. A True Desire-The Spirit gives us His desire to be One in Him (1 Cor. 12:12-13, Eph. 4:13).
  • We are required to set aside our personal desires (our folly) and seek the Spirit’s desires: What is He telling you about Him, His Word, His Body (the Church), and His Mission?
  • READ, READ, READ HIS WORD!!! Then, follow His instructions. Let’s be doers of the Word and not hearers only, and let’s fellowship together in a way that the world will be drawn to Christ.
