"For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God."
The mark of spiritual sonship is having the willingness and ability to be led by the Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 4:3
"And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing."
Those who are spiritually lost cannot comprehend the truth of God’s Word. Pray for those who do not know the Lord, so that their eyes may be opened to the truth.
2 Corinthians 4:13
It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[a] Since we have that same spirit of[b] faith, we also believe and therefore speak.
Developing a reverence for the power of words demonstrates spiritual growth. We speak what we believe in our hearts as a demonstration of our faith.
Ephesians 4:11-12 "So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up"
Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are ministry gifts to the Church. They are responsible for helping Christians grow spiritually and become mature.
What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.
We are called to do good works. He keeps us relevant in all seasons. Good works is our faith at work. Faith without work is dead.
For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.
The word of God does not walk without faith; faith is what makes the word of God real in our spirits. Endeavor to mix the word of God with the faith for only then will it be profitable unto you.
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
Money is not the root of all evil; the love of money is. Our relationship with the material realm should never overshadow or replace our relationship with God.
1 Corinthians 1:6
"And Solomon went up there to the bronze altar before the lord, and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it."
Take notice he offered a thousand burnt offerings instead of a single burnt offering. The answer is you must be willing to offer on extra ordinary sacrifice thing in order to get an extra ordinary result.
1 Samuel 1:20
Then she made a vow and said “O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your, but will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come his head ”
So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel saying."Because I have asked for Him from the Lord"
