So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.
The light of the Lord permeates everything we touch and do as a believer. The light of the glory of the Lord so permeated Moses that, when the man of God died, the angel Michael contested with the devil over what they would do with the bones (Jude 1:9). The glory so filled Elisha, that even when his bones were long dead and dry, a dead man falling against them returned to life (2 Kings 13:21).
When we approach God’s Word, we must realize that it is Spiritual. The world we understand and see is physical, and while it has a bearing on the spiritual, it in itself is not spiritual. What we see and what man thinks of as being spiritual is plainly not (John 3:3-5).
