Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 August 9

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” 
(Romans 13:11-14)

Today’s Morsel:  I believe that one of the problems with the church today is that we keep putting on darkness and calling it “Generational Change”.  Yes, in every generation things may change, but Paul said that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Yes, generations do change, but not God.  As He Himself states through the prophet Malachi, “For I am the LORD, I change not…"(Malachi 3:6).  The apostle Paul admonishes us to cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.  He told the church at Ephesus, “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.” (Ephesians 5:1-4). Generational change doesn’t trump the Bible.

Sing: Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, lift up your voice to God.  Pray in the spirit and with understanding; Oh magnify the Lord.

Thought For Today:  Generational Change doesn’t trump the Bible.
