Bible Ballistics: “BBs”

As we continue this week, we’ll consider the 3rd of our 5 D’s: Debt, Diligence, Discernment, Decency, and Dependence.

Discernment– “The ability to judge well”.

To be “ready” for Jesus’ return, we must judge with wisdom in our everyday choices.  We must be discriminating— “having or showing refined taste or good judgment”.

1 Cor. 12:7-11 says, “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom…… to another discerning of spirits; …..11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will..”

The gift of the Spirit listed here,  ‘discerning of spirits’, is our subject today.  Rendering supernatural judgment in spiritual matters.

Spiritual gifts given to “every man”, “to profit withal” at the Holy Spirit’s will (verse 11).  Gifts given to each believer, for the good of all at God’s direction.

Ecc 8”5b says, “and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment.

Ezk 44:23, “And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.” 

So?  Here’s our shot for the day—?????  Be discerning—make choices based on God’s Word. Pay attention and choose the “holy” not the “profane”. God will teach you if you’ll but

read His word,

pray and

listen to His Spirit!!! 

So?  Keep looking up. Seek to be—

Debt free,

Diligent and

Discerning

for the return of our Lord and the increase of His kingdom.
