What is Jesus saying personally to me today – No knowledge without God
We all know things, bits of information, ideas, formulas, theories but what value is that really. The big questions that have been asked for 1000’s of years, who am I, why am I here and what’s my purpose is real knowledge. Even in this space we might come across some information that gives us an insight to the questions and commonly we hold on to these snippets of knowledge as the truth giving us a a sense of comfort. This knowledge without the experience of Gods love lacks depth and doesn’t cut the mustard. Real knowledge comes from the experience.
Thank you for speaking to me Jesus
How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?
I feel like I am being drip fed information, knowledge and the experience of Gods grace. I have some more messages that make me feel like I know nothing, they are important, I know this to be sure and I do not know what to do with it. The only thing that I can think of to experience a deeper understanding of what God is saying to me is to pray and fast. Looks looked that what I am going to do.
Something is happening and I know that it is you at work in my life.
I know that you will reveal it when the time is right,
So help me to be with you, to be patient, trusting and faithful.
1 Corinthians 8:1-7,11-13
Now about food sacrificed to idols. ‘We all have knowledge’; yes, that is so, but knowledge gives self-importance – it is love that makes the building grow. A man may imagine he understands something, but still not understand anything in the way that he ought to. But any man who loves God is known by him. Well then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: we know that idols do not really exist in the world and that there is no god but the One. And even if there were things called gods, either in the sky or on earth – where there certainly seem to be ‘gods’ and ‘lords’ in plenty – still for us there is one God, the Father, from whom all things come and for whom we exist; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things come and through whom we exist.
Some people, however, do not have this knowledge. There are some who have been so long used to idols that they eat this food as though it really had been sacrificed to the idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled by it. In this way your knowledge could become the ruin of someone weak, of a brother for whom Christ died. By sinning in this way against your brothers, and injuring their weak consciences, it would be Christ against whom you sinned. That is why, since food can be the occasion of my brother’s downfall, I shall never eat meat again in case I am the cause of a brother’s downfall.
