You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
9 Grudge [stenazo] not [me] one against another [kata][allelon], brethren [adelphos], lest [hina
me] ye be condemned [katakrino]: behold [idou], the judge [krites] standeth [histemi] before [pro] the door [thura].KJV-Interlinear
9 Do not complain, brethren,
against one another, that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge
is standing right at the door.NASB
Do not live life with
grudges, with grumblings, or with resentments.Do not live life with irritability or complaining, with bitterness, or holding
a chip on your shoulder.Do not live
life in anger or with desires of revenge.
Time is too short for
wasting time on petty feelings or emotions.
Likewise, do not live
a life feeling sorry for yourself.Do
not waste time feeling sorry for others.Do not waste time believing that if you only had the resources, you
could make life better for others, even the whole world.
Because Jesus Christ
controls history.Jesus Christ controls the
life of each and every individual on planet earth and beyond.
God has a plan for
every person.Gods word is available for
every person to listen to, or read for themselves, and learn.Everyone could have a great life, if only
they placed attention on their own spiritual life.Unfortunately, most folks don t do this.
And what is waiting
for anyone who in effect ignores God?He
stands at the door.The door of
discipline, of judgment.You have only
to open that door and enter into His fellowship (the confession of sins
procedure), and regain your fellowship status.
Why is this
important?Because in fellowship you
live in a state of perfection, as God has defined it.In perfection, there is no sin, and therefore
no judgment, no discipline.
Does this relieve you
of problems from the world?No.But while you live in fellowship, any problems
that arise, will be treated as suffering for blessing, and that is a good
thing.As you endure suffering, of whatever
kind, and without falling into sin, then your spiritual growth is accelerated
and your faith, your life becomes stronger.
In life, you will
face many challenges.You will be
cheated, or you will perceive that you have been cheated.You will have opportunities to judge others whether
in anger of perhaps even in prejudice.
The world will throw
all sorts of problems into your life. It will throw big problems and little problems
or even annoyances, just to get under your skin and get a reaction out of
you.The world will try everything possible
to get you out of fellowship, so as to prevent your spiritual growth.
So, recognize this
early in your life and learn to avoid ill feelings.If you suffer, or are taken advantage of,
learn to accept it, or ignore it, and keep moving forward in your spiritual
life.God offers you a mountain of gold
in eternity.Is anything in this life,
whether fair or unfair, worth losing that?
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
