Daily Bread 11/3/2022


    Daily Bread – November 3, 2022 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) 2 Corinthians 11:4 – For if one comes proclaiming another Jesus Who we have not proclaimed, or you receive another Spirit Who you have not received, or another Gospel who you have not accepted – you are all amazingly tolerant! Which Jesus? There cannot be two concepts of Jesus and both be correct. There cannot be two concepts of the working and ministry of the Holy Spirit; there cannot be two Gospels. The Corinthian Church had to decide which Jesus they would follow – the one Paul preached, or the one that these outsiders were proclaiming. The message of salvation Paul delivered to the Church at Corinth had produced the glorious manifestations of the Holy Spirit that we read about in 1 Corinthians chapters 12 through 14. The results of these outsiders produced fruits of a different kind: quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, slander, gossip, conceit, disorder, impurity, sexual immorality, and lustfulness (2 Corinthians 12:21; 2 Timothy 3:13; 1 John 2:26; 1 Timothy 4:1). One thing is for certain. Paul was not going to turn a blind eye. If need be, he would come with a rod – as would any good shepherd (1 Corinthians 4:21). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
