SPECKA – Application to apply

Posted: May 30, 2011 in SPECKA

For me Application to apply is the most valuable portion of SPECKA. It’s actually what i search for when reading the word. i mean if there is nothing for me to apply then what use is there in studying the word? It’s just head knowledge and there is no lack of those that have nothing more than head knowledge. The word deserves to be applied.

SPECKA.  …a Sin to confess ….a Promise to keep …an Example to follow …a Command to obey … Knowledge to learn …an Applicationto apply.

The way it works is that i read a chapter, a group of verses or a single verse of the Bible and look for descriptions for each of the words in the passage. So in the following verses i’ll use bold red to expose the Sin to confess, or words that lead to sin. i’ll use bold blue to expose the Promise to keep words. i’ll use bold green to expose the Example to follow words. Due to some duplication of the use of words i’ll use an underline to expose the Command to obey words. i’ll use purple to expose Knowledge to learn although technically its all knowledge to learn. For exposing Application to apply i’ll just write it out for the close of this series of posts.

Matthew 6:19-34  Teaching about Money and Possessions

19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

22 “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. 23But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

 24“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

 25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

At first i would have given the obvious answer, 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. That would be the cheesy, oops i mean easy answer. It would seem to be the “RIGHT” thing to say. It makes me pretty spiritual, don’t you think? No after looking back over the week this is what i see as my applications to apply… First make sure that anything i am counting as valuable is of spiritual value verses earthly. Secondly keep my eyes on the birds of the air and the lilies of the fields which remind me that God is my provider and thus i will be focusing on the things of God and living righteously. Sounds simple but i have tried to make the word complicated in the past. These days i look to make it simple.
