SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL

THE HIDDEN MEANING

INTRODUCTION

     In these scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe the aim of self-sacrifice is not to negate ourselves, but to voluntarily suffer personal loss for the greater good. Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, “Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask.” And He said to them, “What do you want Me to do for you?” They said to Him, “Grant us that we may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on Your left, in Your glory.” But Immanuel said to them, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They said to Him, “We are able.” So Immanuel said to them, “You will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized; but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared.” And when the ten heard it, they began to be greatly displeased with James and John. But Immanuel called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark 10: 35-45 NKJV

Biblical Word

     CUP – Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Immanuel loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure; No immoral impure or greedy person – such a man is an idolater – has any inheritance in the kingdom of Immanuel and of God. Let no on deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Ephesians 5: 1-6 NIV

Reference

     Romans 1: 18-23 – God’s anger is revealed from heaven against all the sin and evil of the people whose evil ways prevent the truth from being known. God punishes them, because what can be known about God is plain to them, for God himself made it plain. Ever since God created the world, his invisible qualities, both his eternal power and his divine nature, have been clearly seen; they are perceived in the things God has made. So those people have no excuse at al! They know God, but they do not give him the honor that belongs to him, nor do they thank him. Instead, their thoughts have become complete nonsense, and their empty minds are filled with darkness. The say they are wise, but they are fools; instead of worshiping the immortal God, they worship images made to look like mortals or birds or animals or reptiles. GNT

Significance

     Self-Sacrificial Love (It is a love that shows itself in action) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe means you value something or somebody more than yourself, and place their needs and wants above your own. It is doing what is righteous, and spiritual conduct that honors God. A self-sacrificial person gives up what they want, so that other people can have what they want. These people were unselfish, self-sacrificing, and sincerely concerned about the good of all. Immanuel’s courage and self-sacrificing true spiritual devotion, by accepting God’s plan resulted in the loss of his life.
