Are You Spiritually Obese?

Are you Spiritually Obese?

by Tanya

Spiritually-Obese

We sit in church and listen attentively to the wonderful sermon that was preached and feel so refreshed by it.

We go online and read a wonderful blog about how some person has been working for the Lord.

We read the word of God and gain wonderful insights into the meaning of the passage of scripture.

Yet…we sit and do nothing.

Life happens. Work happens. Children happen . And so you find yourself too tired to play an active role in working for the Lord. And each week you return to church to receive another blessing from the service.

And so we take in and take in, but we don’t do any spiritual work.

And so we become…spiritually obese.

Well today, I want to tell us all, to get up and get moving spiritually. Let us work the work of faith.

Let us shake off the spiritual lethargy that has us failing to work in service to God in sharing God’s love with others.

As we receive the truth, let us say like Jesus:

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4, King James Version).

We don’t need any special qualifications to work for God.

We don’t need money to work for God.

We don’t need a special time to work for God.

What we need to do is to get up in faith, and share a smile, a word of encouragement, a prayer…

Then it will be that we will stop only being fed, but also share and feed others the spiritual Bread which we have received.

Prayer:

Oh Lord, help is to share Your word with others, that they too may be blessed, as we have been by receiving Your Word.
