*TOPIC: SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT*
*TEXT*: . Colossians 2:8 _Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ._
People put themselves under various schools of thought which determine the way they think and live. They are either Realist or Idealist. Whatsoever is our default setting thought-mode in times of trouble and emergency is our school of thought. It is our logic or rationale. Which school of thought are you? Your school or pattern of thought will determine what you will end up as.
Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
Jesus belonged to a Scripturist school of thought. He lived by the Word. The kingdom of God is of the Word, by the Word and for the Word. And so Jesus simply did according to the word.
His principles and ways of life were scripture-guided. The word is the constitution of heaven and so He was bound to it. Our philosophies must not be from Socrates or Plato but from Him that is wiser than them all.
Becoming a Scripturist is the fastest way to a life of abundance, because it simply means the Word has the final say in your life and nothing else. By what principle do you judge the things of life? By what standard do you see things around you? Do you live by cultural beliefs, human traditions, old proverbs, popular opinions, intellectual reasonings or by the Word? Anyone who claims to be in the school of the Spirit without full submission of his thought to the Word is like a student in a school who doesn’t want to use a book or have one. The Word rules the world. Be a Scripturist and dominate your World!
Lord! I surrender myself to your word. Help me think in line with it always . Amen
