Today’s Scripture(s) – Galatians 5:9,16; 1 Corinthians 15:33
“A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” … “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” … “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”
If you have ever baked bread you know that leaven, (yeast as we know it), mixed with your flour will make your dough rise. Let’s look at what leaven is in the dictionary because I want you to see what it means VERY clearly. Leaven is a substance that causes fermentation and expansion; it is an element that produces an altering or transforming influence. You only need to add a little bit to get the effect you want from the dough resulting into the bread you are making. What kind of bread are you baking? You see Dear Ones what happens when we take part in the things of this world, fleshly desires, flesh driven actions you only need to let a little bit seep into your life and if you don’t recognize it and root it out with returning to and walking in the Spirit you will find that your “whole lump” will be contaminated before you know it. Don’t allow yourself to fulfill any part of the lust of the flesh. Fulfilling a little bit will leaven the whole. Don’t think that it’s okay to talk about someone, gossip is not good. Someone is saying “We are human and we make mistakes, you’re being too harsh too ridged.” You know what I say to that? “NO, I’m not.” Here’s why, you may talk about that person a little bit today, but the next time you talk about them it will be a little bit more and a little bit more then somewhere along the communication your conversation about them turns into being judgmental. Matthew 7:2 says: “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again”. Let your conversation be driven to lift up and praise and glorify the Father, I tell you, if you will do this you will find that your talking will not be so much, and you know what, if you aren’t talking so much then you can use the time that you spent running your mouth about “nothing”, you can use that time to pray and read God’s word and commune with the Father. You know when you start talking about the Lord some people will stay away from you, especially those who want to delve into evil communications. Your presence will be shunned in some circles. Don’t mourn that, seek the Lord more, don’t be like Lot’s wife and look back, longing to know what’s going on, when you do that you are opening yourself up to the leaven and trust me, the enemy will make sure you get some sprinkled on you. Walk in the Spirit, talk in the Spirit. Live, move and breathe in the Spirit.
