Proverbs 23, 24

In our reading today is a couple of verses that describe the spiritual “taste” of revelation knowledge when the Spirit of God enlightens the Scripture in your heart.Proverbs 24:13, 14 declare,  “My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: 24:14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.” When you have found the knowledge of wisdom, rather, when the Spirit of God has revealed it to you. In fact David writes by the Spirit of God that revelation knowledge from the Spirit of God is more desired than gold and sweeter than the honey comb. Psalm 19:7-10 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 

 

2 Corinthians 5

In our reading today we have a description of the born again experience, the new birth. These are such powerful verse we need to as Jesus said, “Let these sayings sink down into your ears.” The citation is from the Classic Amplified 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! 5:18 But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him]. 5:19 It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). 5:20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God. 5:21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness]. We are Christ’s ambassadors. One definition of an ambassador is “the highest ranking diplomat who represents a state in a foreign country”. That’s who we are, my friend, ambassadors for Christ kingdom.
