Our new devotional series will be a weekly video from Pastor John. The series is called, “The Compass” and will be posted each Wednesday starting July 8th, 2020.
I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. John 17:14-15 (ESV)
One of the definitions of a compass is that it is “an instrument used for showing direction, especially one consisting of a magnetic needle swing freely on a pivot and pointing to the magnetic north.”
Many people are aware that a compass is used for pointing you in the natural realm. What many do not understand is that we also need a “spiritual compass” to help us navigate in the spiritual realm.
Our “spiritual true north” is the Word of God. It points us to Jesus. He is our destination and He is where our focus must be.
The Word of God was written under the influence of the Holy Spirit. It is spiritual and the true meaning can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit. Things of the flesh are understood by the flesh and things of the Spirit understood by the Spirit.
My brothers and sisters, as you follow through with me every Wednesday, staying in the Word of God and in prayer along with spending time in the presence of the Lord will help us guard against any influence affecting the accuracy of our spiritual compass. Amen!
– Pastor Punni
