Ignorance of spiritual laws – is one of many things that cause suffering in this world nowadays

Good day dear friends, welcome to our column “Daily word for spiritual strength!” Let the mercy of God be with you today. God sent His revelation into my heart and I thank for the opportunity to share it with you.For a few days we´ve been talking about negative consequences caused by ignorance. We also mentioned our everyone´s personal responsibility for filling our mind with the word of God and other useful information. Zealous Jews rejected the gift of righteousness offered by Him in Jesus Christ for free, because they lacked knowledge, while having zeal for God. As we stated earlier, jealousy is a good thing but without knowledge it causes worries and deficiencies. 
«Brothers, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God is for Israel, that they may be saved. For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn’t subject themselves to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the fulfilment of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.» (Romans 10:1-4).
 Today may people are saying they love God and believe in Him, while staying ignorant to His righteousness and living according to their own righteousness. Therefore, they blame God for being unjust to them when facing problems and distress in their life.Ignorance of spiritual laws – is one of many things that cause suffering in this world nowadays.So we can see that:
  • Ignorance – is lack of knowledge, guidance and enlightenment.
  • Ignorance – is everyone´s personal choice.
  • Ignorance – is something that separates people from life and God´s care.
  • Ignorance – is followed by lust, that in turn is followed by sin, then death.
  • Ignorance – is the thing that leads to annihilation and tragedies.
As we mentioned earlier, in addition to your own sins also the sins of other people increase pain and sufferings on Earth. It hurts when you suffer due to your own sin, but it hurts even more when your sufferings are caused by someone else´s disobedience to the law. For example, many innocent people perish due to lack of responsibility of other people (e.g. drunk drivers, careless operator, etc.).When Jesus disciples met a man blind from birth they didn´t hesitate to ask Jesus who actually sinned, the blind man or his parents. 
«As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither did this man sin, nor his parents; but, that the works of God might be revealed in him.» (John 9:1-3).
 Inborn blindness is not a blessing, it can´t come from the loving God who laid His life for us so that we can have life abundantly. Knowing this the disciples couldn´t get the point right. They finally concluded that man was blind either because of his own sins or his parents broke the law in some way.The disciples were certain that root of any kind of suffering comes from person´s sins or from the sins of other people, e.g. his parents. Nowadays, many children suffer from their parents´ sins. Many children have inherited diseases due to the way their parents live. People suffer not only due to their own sins but also because of the sins of other people.Though, Jesus used that opportunity to open the eyes of His disciples and explain that outside of sins there are another reasons why people suffer.We are going to talk about it tomorrow!Be abundantly blessed in the Lord!Rufus Adjiboje, pastor
