Spiritual Death Happens One Compromise At A Time.
How Would You Answer The Following Questions?
1. Does The Story Of The Cross No Longer Move You?
1 Corinthians 1:18 (NASB) says “For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
2. Have You Left Your First Love?
Revelation 2:4 (NASB) says “But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.”
3. Do Church Services Bore You?
Romans 10:17 (NASB) says “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” Note: If you are not receiving what you need, it may be time to look for a new church home.
4. Do You Have No Interest In Saving Souls?
Proverbs 11:30 (NASB) says “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who is wise wins souls.”
And he who is wise wins souls.”
5. Do Worldly Things Attract You
More Than Spiritual Things?
Romans 8:5-7 (NASB) says “For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so.”
6. Are Your Fooling Yourself?
1 Corinthians 3:18 (NASB) says “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise.”
7. Do You Fail To Do What You Know You Should Do?
James 1:22 (NASB) says “But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.”
8. Are You Frequently Absent At Worship Services?
Hebrews 10:25 (NASB) says “not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
9. Do You No Longer Participate
In The Work Of The Church?
Romans 10:1-3 (NASB) says “Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for them is for their salvation. For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge. For not knowing about God’s righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.”
10. Are You Like An Unplugged Cellphone Or Ipad?
As Christians, we are like cellphones and ipads. As long as they have power (are fully charged), these tools work great. When we are constantly reading the Word, Praying, Singing, Praising and Worshiping God and in Fellowship with other like-minded believers, our Faith is strong.
When we stop doing these things, we are like the cellphone or ipad. Their power gradually goes down, eventually dies, and they become useless unless they are charged up again. If we are not plugged into our power source, we will eventually die spiritually.
This above demonstrates how easy it is to drift away from God and fall into sin.
DANGER! STOP! DON'T LOSE GOD'S FREE GIFT!
STAY PLUGGED IN TO YOUR POWER SOURCE.
Romans 6:23 (NASB) says “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
