A Spiritual Checkup
This is an excerpt of my own heart’s internal desire to remain current and alive unto my God and Saviour.
Spiritual Ignorance is the result of disobedience.
“But he that doeth truth
cometh to the light”
Spiritual Stagnation is the result of fruitless living.
“Every branch in me that
beareth not fruit he taketh away”
Spiritual Apathy is the result of not abiding in Him.
“If a man abide not in me,
he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered”
Spiritual Poverty is the result of robbing God of the gift of ourselves to Him.
“Will a man rob God?
Yet ye have robbed me”
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God,
to present your bodies as a living sacrifice,
holy and acceptable to God,
which is your spiritual worship”
Repentance and godly sorrow is the great gift of God’s mercy to us. In turning we shall be turned, and in godly sorrow is found the wonder of His Joy. Humbling ourselves is the precursor to Him being magnified in our lives.
” I now rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that you were made sorry to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly way, that you might suffer loss by us in nothing. For godly sorrow produces repentance to salvation, which brings no regret”
2 Corinthians 7:9-10
to see whether you are in the faith”
2 Corinthians 13:5
