OH….

Today I am going to be covering a very awkward topic. Something that no one really talks about. With good reason, it’s something that is very painful but is beneficial in the long run. So what exactly am I talking about? Circumcision! But wait a minute not before you start jumping to conclusions. What will be talked about here is not physical circumcision but spiritual circumcision.

OH….

You see in Genesis 17 when God commanded all Abraham to be circumcised he didn’t mean only in the physical. Let’s see what scripture says, Romans 2:28-29

“28 For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, and true circumcision is not something visible in the flesh. 29 On the contrary, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart—by the Spirit, not the letter.[a] That man’s praise[b] is not from men but from God.” (HCSB)

You see the physical doesn’t matter it’s the spiritual that matters. Some people may be circumcised physically but spiritually are not! The spiritual is more important than the physical. Scripture says in Colossians 2:11,

” In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ”

Or….

Galatians 5:6

“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.”

 

Or….

1 Corinthians 7:19

“Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters is the keeping of the commandments of God.”

I can go on and on and on and on but the importance of all this is obedience! You ay be circumcised but not obedient, you may dress the part but not play the part. You see God doesn’t see whether you are circumcised physically he sees if your heart is circumcised!

How do you circumcise your heart?

Let’s read Colossians 2:11 again,

” In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ”

It is simply by sacrificing your flesh that God will circumcise you spiritually! So today I challenge you to allow God to cut off your fleshly desires and become circumcised with him!

Please, comment your thoughts!

God Bless!
