Love The Word…Live The Word

Benham Brothers

What if we asked you to run a lap around the track without breathing in?

Or what if we asked you to fast for three days before a big race?

The chances of success (or survival, for that matter) would be slim.

If this physical reality is true, how much more, then, would the spiritual be?

Today, many believers expect to have spiritual endurance to run the race God has marked out for them (Hebrews 12:1-2) without taking in any of God’s word on a consistent basis.

If you don’t breathe in you can’t breathe out. If you don’t consume you can’t produce.

This is why our main objective as believers in the marketplace has been to devour God’s word. We know we have work to do (and so do you!), but we cannot accomplish it apart from feeding ourselves the truths of Scripture.

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3)

To take it a step further, have you ever wondered how pilots fly so accurately in the rain or through the night? This baffled us until we learned that they don’t use their line of sight to fly the plane – they simply trust the instrument panel in front of them. The panel tells them left from right and up from down. On a dark, cloudy night, the pilots are functionally blind without the panel. Yet when they rely on the instrument panel and trust its direction flight becomes possible, even on the darkest of nights.

Much of our lives can feel dark and unsure, especially in business, but we have a panel right in front of us that will direct us in the way we should go.

Psalm 119:105 says God’s word is “a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.” We can’t imagine building and growing multiple businesses without the light of God’s word in hand.

Lessons like going the second mile, giving more than we take in pay, being faithful in the little things, and letting cash (not debt) direct our decisions.

Even more, God’s word has set the foundation for all that we do! Marriage, parenting, budgeting, taking care of our bodies, business partnerships, etc. Left to ourselves we’d be like a runner without breath or a pilot without a panel.

So pick up the Word today and make it a part of your daily routine. Check out our app if you need a schedule, and join thousands who have chosen this path too!


What Does It Mean To Be A Carnal Christian?

Who is a carnal christian?

October 28, 2020 Nehemiah Zion

The carnal and spiritual believers, are two types of Christians that exist in the church. If you are wondering why church is a mess and so many problems exist within the church, here is an answer.

Who is a carnal christian?

They are spiritually dead and is of the world. Their end is death. (Romans 8:6). I want to share 5 traits that help identify the carnal christian.

  1. Their mind goes against God’s word. Their thoughts and lifestyles do not bear fruit for the glory of God. It’s not possible for them to come under the subjection of the Word of God. (Romans 8:7)
  2. There is always jealousy, and infighting in their hearts. They are impulsive and easily given to sin. (1 Corinthians 3:3)
  3. They love preachers rather than the person of Christ. They are biased in their approach. Love men of God more than God Himself. (1 Corinthians 3:4)
  4. Their weapons are carnal and not spiritual (2 Corinthians 10:4). They consider humans as the enemy and not Satan and his kingdom.
  5. They walk in the traditions of man rather than the perfect word of God. Still babes, unskilled in their christian walk (Hebrews 5:13).

Are you a carnal christian or a spiritual? So many well-meaning believers leave the church because of the behaviour of carnal christians among them.

Young musicians who’ve led music seem to suddenly fall out of faith. Nothing is sudden in life. We reap what we sow in ourselves. When we abide in Jesus we bear good fruit, otherwise it will be bad fruit (John 15:1-7).

Even spiritual believers often reveal carnal traits when they face persecution. Neglecting areas of our lives that need attention will cause us to fall back into the carnal state.

Examine your life today! Search your heart and mind in the presence of God. Let the Holy Spirit reveal to you, personally. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen.

Finding Spiritual Wholeness

July 15, 2019 Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

Have you ever prayed for healing? Maybe you prayed for physical healing from a disease, emotional healing from a broken heart, or spiritual healing from a chronic sin or addiction. We all desire to be healthy and whole physically and mentally, but especially spiritually. We seek wholeness and peace for our souls.

We will only find spiritual wholeness if we manifest the fruit of the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit promises us spiritual health through a relationship with Him. When we are sealed by the Holy Spirit and marked as one of God’s children—when we daily seek to be filled by the power of the Holy Spirit—then we will bear the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus said, “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit” (Matthew 12:33). We will only find spiritual wholeness if we manifest the fruit of the Spirit—not through false spirituality found in meditation, self-help books, or motivational seminars.

Sadly, many Christians forget to come to God daily, asking to be filled with His Spirit. They neglect their relationship with God.

They begin to doubt His promises so that they live in turmoil when they could be experiencing spiritual health and wholeness. Beloved, don’t miss out on the blessing of the very presence of God within you to lead and guide you, to comfort and encourage you, to transform you and give you peace. Today, ask God to fill you with His Spirit, and experience His peace.

Prayer: God, I want to be spiritually healthy and whole. I pray that Your Spirit would fill me every day so that I will manifest the fruit of the Spirit. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).
