Pursuing a Spiritual MBA
Real truth with a spiritual MBA is available to us. It comes
through the teaching of the Holy Spirit and of course the Holy Spirit uses
His text material, the Word of God. You can obtain it if you….
II Tim 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. ”
Be careful when pursuing your Spiritual MBA. There are some sources in worldly high places not worth listening to…they see God’s truths as not relevant for today. And are foolishness for directing our lives. They are called the unsaved or not ‘born again’.
I Cor 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Malachi 3:6a “I the Lord do not change…”
Why is it that many times the things I think are appropriate are really not what God sees as appropriate? Even when I feel I am lined up with God and His will for my life. That being the case then I need to trust God even if my inner self does not agree.
Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.”
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seems right unto men, BUT the ends thereof are the ways of death.”
It will take commitment and obtaining your reference material from the
one source of truth we have in this world.
II Tim 3:16 “All scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
2 Peter 1:20,21 “Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
Now that we understand how important it is to pursue God’s truth and values and we know where to find them then here is one final exam. Who is the owner of truth?
John 14:6 “And Jesus said unto them, I am the way, the truth and the
life, no one comes to the Father, BUT BY ME!”
Now that we know where truth resides we can focus on reading it and letting it change us so we can truly be educated in the things that matter for eternity!
Have a great day seeking and serving Jesus!
