SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL

THE HIDDEN MEANING

Death of man hit by unmarked police SUV – The Detroit News

INTRODUCTION

     In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe means to honor and look up to people like this: companions and workers who show us how to do it, giving us something to aim for. Now it came to pass at the end of seven days that the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. “Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul.” Ezekiel 3: 16-21 NKJV

Biblical Word

     WATCHMAN – You know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints. I urge you, brothers, to submit to such as these and to everyone who joins in the work, and labors at it. I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you. For they refreshed my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition. 1 Corinthians 16: 15-18 NIV

Reference

     Hebrews 13: 7, 17, 24 – Remember your former leaders, who spoke God’s message to you. Think back on how they lived and died, and imitate their faith. Obey your leaders and follow their orders. They watch over your souls without resting, since they must give to God an account of their service. If you obey them, they will do their work gladly; if not, they will do it with sadness, and that would be of no help to you. Give our greetings to all your leaders and to all God’s people. The believers from Italy send you their greetings. GNT

Significance

     Stewardship (Someone who has the spiritual gift of leadership) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe as utilizing and managing all resources God provides for His presence and the betterment of His creation. Recognizing that everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God and being grateful and generous with those gifts. Stewardship is a way of life, a life of accountability and acknowledging God as Creator and Giver of all. Stewardship involves responsible management of our God-given resources of time, talent, and treasure. Stewards as disciples of Immanuel see themselves as caretakers of all God’s gifts.
