Episode 53 is here! We are all living but what we are living in is where we differ. We all have emotions and feelings, but we shouldn’t be living in them. We need to get out of our feelings and into the faith. Get out of yourself and into the spirit. Enjoy!
Also, the conversation goes further in our “A Little More Matters” bonus episodes for our Patreon family, for more info on becoming part go to www.patreon.com/realchurchmatters!
Get Out Your Feels And In Your Faith
What Are You Into? | Colossians 3:7-9
7 In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. 8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices
We are all living but what we are living in is where we differ. We all have emotions and feelings, but we shouldn’t be living in them. We need to get out of our feelings and into the spirit.
Don’t Walk In Your Feelings, Walk In The Spirit | Galatians 5:16
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
We have feelings, but we should not walk according to them, we should walk according to the spirit. Walking according to our feelings fulfills the desires or lust of the flesh.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
1 Peter 3:18
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
Jesus Had Feelings, But He Wasn’t In Them, They Were In The Spirit | John 11:33
When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.
And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
We are depressed because we are impressed by our feelings and not the spirit. When you are in your feelings you become overcome by them, you should be in the spirit, so you can be out of your feelings and overcome them.
4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
Everything Is Better Out Of Your Feelings And In The Spirit | Colossians 1:7-8
7 just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf 8 and has made known to us your love in the Spirit.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
