The strong and the weak

The strong and the weak

An emotional person is weak. Undefined in decisions, undefined in faith. He is a slave to the opinion of others.

This causes him to be unhappy, even though he believes in God.

While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4.18

Those born of the Spirit are spirit.

He lives a rational faith and rejects visions, feelings, and emotions.

He believes, then sees, and never needs to see to believe.

Is this crazy? Certainly, for this world.

Not for the world of faith, the Kingdom of the Spirit of God.

Only those who were born again can see the Kingdom of the Spirit of God. John 3.3

Only those born of water and Spirit enter the Kingdom of the Spirit of God. John 3.5

Only those born of God can win the war of salvation because they use supernatural faith.

But those who are born of emotion, born of the flesh or the natural man, do not have the Holy Spirit to discern what belongs to the world of supernatural faith.

For this reason, they do not have the courage to make a serious commitment to God, deny their will, take up the cross, and follow him.

Instead, he is literally a coward. At the slightest sound of war drums, he runs away.

He does not have the courage to say no to sin and face evil’s injustices.

His emotional faith makes him fearful in front of relatives, friends and acquaintances.

The same is not true of those born of God. Their faith is solid, grounded, founded upon the Word of God. They do not care about other people’s opinions…

And if everyone forsakes them because of their faith, then they become stronger.

From weakness, they draw strength and take possession of the promises.

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. I Corinthians 2.14
