Abide every man abide
1 Corinthians 7:20 - Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
In this scripture the word translated as 'let' is the same word 'abide' - Greek 'meno'. Therefore the scripture without trying to simplify should have been:
Abide every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
Notice the last words 'was called'. By the grammar of the words we learn that it is a command by authority (Spiritual) given from above.
We are called to be witnesses to the truth (the Word of God is Truth). We are not suppose to just know the truth but let the truth be know unto others. That does not mean be go out and blare the hard truth at people around us or those we come across. God has given us wisdom and using this wisdom we need to give the right concentration of the truth using the right words, without twisting the truth.
Jesus had many things to tell us but since He could not blare it out bluntly, He gave it to us in parables.
You have been learning and understanding the Word of God. This truth which is now in you is not for you to keep safely inside you. You need to share this truth wisely with others, becoming a witness to the truth and God.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are Truth and your every Word is truth. Lord, You have called us to be your witnesses, witnesses to the Truth. Lord the wisdom You have given us, help us use it to share this truth unto the people we have been sent to give unto. Guide our every word and action as we testify for You...
This we ask in Jesus' Name, Amen.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
