“Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;”
When a person visits a health facility, one of the first things the health practitioners do is take the person’s vitals.
This is because the vital signs are a group of the four to six most important medical signs that indicate the status of the body’s vital functions.
Spiritually, there are also signs that indicate whether a believer is vibrant in the faith. It will be a horrible thing to ignore vital signs.
Today, we’ll talk about two signs that are indicative of a poor spiritual health.
Usually, before something becomes an issue, you would have observed the signs. There are always warning signs.
The first sign that may be indicative of a weak faith walk is indifference to spiritual devotion. If you ever observe this, there’s a problem.
For example, whenever you find yourself skipping prayers, bible study and other spiritual exercises, that’s a clear warning sign that shouldn’t be ignored.
The solution to this abnormality is very simple. You must first redefine your priorities and begin to interest yourself in the things of God. To interest yourself means to mentally dispose yourself and begin to see those spiritual exercises as being beneficial and necessary.
Then, you must build discipline in those things by actually doing them. It won’t matter that you mentally dispose yourself if you don’t do them. (Romans 12:11-12, Ephesians 6:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
The second and last point we’ll be discussing is indifference to your association.
When a believer starts rolling with the wrong association or considers it unnecessary to keep the right association, that believer is a time bomb that’s close to explosion. (Psalm 1:1, 1 Corinthians 15:33, Proverbs 13:20).
The company you roll with can make or mar you. We didn’t have an option to choose what family we’ll be a part of, but God has given us the opportunity to choose who our friends will be. This shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Reassess yourself today and correct that which needs to be corrected.
