Daily Fountain 2017 - Your Altitude Determines Your Attitude

Saturday February 24

Bible Reading:     Rom. 8: 1 - 11

Topic:         Your Altitude Determines Your Attitude

History records that before the invention of the aeroplane, Scientists did not believe that metals could fly in the air because of the law of gravity.

But when an exception to that rule was discovered, it produced the aircraft.

So, before the invention of the aeroplane, the height (altitude) of reasoning of the Scientists was only on the ground because that was the much they could see.

But when a superior, scientific reasoning came up, they adjusted their thinking and behaved in a more advanced way.

The same is applicable to us from today's passage.

Some believers are so carnal that they believe that it is not possible to live a sin-free, spiritual and holy life every day. That is the altitude at which they operate and so their attitude is carnal and shallow.

But to walk in the Spirit by following the Word of God by grace through faith is an altitude that is an exception to the gravitational force of the world system.

"Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh" (Gal. 5: 16); but if you walk in the flesh, you will fall to the flesh.

The rule is strict, your altitude determines your attitude

Lord, increase my spiritual altitude so that my attitude to You will change positively, Amen.

Memory verse:   Rom. 8: 1
"There is therefore now, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit"
