Isaiah 1:17

***

What precedes application of wisdom?

***

Your attitudes toward other people, toward fairness, toward those that are helpless all come from true motives which can only come from doctrine when you are controlled by that doctrine in your soul

Your attitudes toward other people, toward fairness, toward those that are helpless all come from true motives which can only come from doctrine when you are controlled by that doctrine in your soul.

By learning, your mind is transformed from that of a carnal thinker to that of a spiritual thinker. The only separation between the two is the forgiveness of sin by means of confession. This is the washing mentioned in the previous verse.

Now, you will still think as a doctor, lawyer, cook, wife, husband, rocket scientist, ditch digger, or whatever you are in life. You won’t suddenly become solemn and wear black robes and be boring to everyone around you.

If you climb mountains, drive fast cars, or do needle work, you’ll still do those things and have more fun doing them. You’ll be better organized, more self confident, more tuned in, to the needs of others rather than yourself, and so forth.

So the turning point in ones life is in the soul, which is thought, or attitude.

It is not in a new haircut, not in a new clothing outfit, not in a job change, not in any ‘thing’ on this planet.

Only in your mind does or can your transformation occur.

And how simple it is, too.

Just to merely listen and hear to begin with, but as we have seen those who are negative won’t even do that. They just will not pay attention and they will miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime, for that is exactly what Bible study gives you – opportunities.

Bible doctrine opens up doors for you. A negative attitude closes them – actually you never even see the doors of opportunity when you are not teachable, so you miss out entirely and don’t even know it.

Typically negative people look to the wisdom of the world, its credentials, its views, its philosophies, its conclusions, their own ability to sort out truth from the lies in life. Multiplied sacrifices in other words. And all of these things guide a person further and further away from truth.

Doctrine however, brings truth directly into your soul, making it perspicuous and discernable, but only if you follow Gods mandated process for learning and growing up in your spiritual life.

Therefore you must approach God, through His one and only representative, the Son (salvation by faith). You must approach God in cleanliness, not filth (fellowship by means of confession). You must approach God in wisdom (learning by means of legitimate study). You must approach God by means of a daily application of that wisdom (do unto others).

This then rounds out your spiritual life (all by means of Gods efforts and accomplishments – none by means of yours).

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
