Daily Bread 8/31/2023


Daily Bread – August 31, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Ephesians 5:19-20 – Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks at all times for all things to God and the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Being Filled Results In Divine Expressions Being filled with the Holy Spirit leads to divinely-inspired expressions of joy and thanksgiving; one of which is spiritual songs. There is no other definition for spiritual songs than the one Paul gave to the Corinthians: singing in the Spirit, which is singing in the Heavenly language – a contrast that he made to singing with the understanding (1 Corinthians 14:15). To attempt to understand spiritual songs outside the context of the utterance of the Holy Spirit is to willingly step away from the foundation Paul laid out regarding the spiritual in (1 Corinthians 14:1). Paul describes two ways to pray, sing, and speak in Church by the Holy Spirit – one with prophetic utterance that can be understood by all (1 Corinthians 14:3-6,9-12,15,19,22, and v24-26,29-31,39); and the other with the language of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 14:2,4-6,13- 14,16-18,22,27,39).
