Lesson Learned?

So many things are in the blessed word of God to learn. If we do not learn from past mistakes, we might repeat them. God forbid that we repeat any mistakes. Everything that needs to be said is written in the following passage for today. Prayerfully read over it, and ask the Lord to let you see what it is that He is saying to you from His word (John 10:27-28). Let me know in the comments section what you feel the Lord is saying. I pray His richest blessings upon you all, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, who is our Lord and Savior and soon coming King.

1 Corinthians 10 NLT

1 I don’t want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, about our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. All of them were guided by a cloud that moved ahead of them, and all of them walked through the sea on dry ground. 2 In the cloud and in the sea, all of them were baptized as followers of Moses. 3 All of them ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all of them drank the same spiritual water. For they drank from the spiritual rock that traveled with them, and that rock was Christ. 5 Yet God was not pleased with most of them, and their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

6 These things happened as a warning to us, so that we would not crave evil things as they did, 7 or worship idols as some of them did. As the Scriptures say, “The people celebrated with feasting and drinking, and they indulged in pagan revelry.” 8 And we must not engage in sexual immorality as some of them did, causing 23,000 of them to die in one day.

9 Nor should we put Christ to the test, as some of them did and then died from snakebites. 10 And don’t grumble as some of them did, and then were destroyed by the angel of death. 11 These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age.

12 If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. 13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

14 So, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols. 15 You are reasonable people. Decide for yourselves if what I am saying is true. 16 When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? And when we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ? 17 And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body. 18 Think about the people of Israel. Weren’t they united by eating the sacrifices at the altar?

19 What am I trying to say? Am I saying that food offered to idols has some significance, or that idols are real gods? 20 No, not at all. I am saying that these sacrifices are offered to demons, not to God. And I don’t want you to participate with demons. 21 You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons, too. 22 What? Do we dare to rouse the Lord’s jealousy? Do you think we are stronger than he is?

23 You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial. 24 Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others.

25 So you may eat any meat that is sold in the marketplace without raising questions of conscience. 26 For “the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.”

27 If someone who isn’t a believer asks you home for dinner, accept the invitation if you want to. Eat whatever is offered to you without raising questions of conscience. 28 (But suppose someone tells you, “This meat was offered to an idol.” Don’t eat it, out of consideration for the conscience of the one who told you. 29 It might not be a matter of conscience for you, but it is for the other person.) For why should my freedom be limited by what someone else thinks? 30 If I can thank God for the food and enjoy it, why should I be condemned for eating it?

31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 32 Don’t give offense to Jews or Gentiles or the church of God. 33 I, too, try to please everyone in everything I do. I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved.

Pray with me please

Lord God, the Almighty, Our King,

We praise You for all that You are and all that You are doing in our lives. Help us Lord, that our eyes would be open to the truths contained in Your word. Your word is powerful. We praise You and thank You for Your blessed and Holy Word. You have formed everything into existence with Your word. You have given us everything that we need in Your word. I pray that the blinders would fall off of our eyes and that You would minister to each and every person reading Your word here today. I ask You to reveal Yourself to us in a new way, that we would have a better understanding, that we would learn something that we never seen before. I pray that spiritual eyes will be opened and we will leave from this place feeling refreshed and renewed from being in Your presence. Flood our hearts as we open up to You in worship. Come and take the rightful spot as Lord of our hearts, minds, souls and bodies, for it is in Jesus’ name we pray, believing. Amen.

We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens, (Galatians 6:2) so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you. If it is more private you can always contact me via email at luckd61@yahoo.com I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.

Let’s worship today with

  1. Donna, thank you for drawing us into deeper reflection with the word of God and prayer. Sometimes it is hard to go deeper on our own… thank you for showing us the path.

    1. You are so welcome my very dear friend. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Was there a particular part that spoke to you? I kinda wanted to know what everyone gleaned from this passage. Maybe it’s too personal. That is okay too. I pray God richly blesses us all. (((Kathy))) ♡♡♡

  2. Yes, I pray with you for the Lord to “Come and take the rightful spot as Lord of my heart, mind, soul and body.” I don’t know what I’d do without that assurance of His presence in my life! Thank you for the scriptures and the prayer. You speak to my heart.
