Topic: Spiritual Sensitivity

Stop loving this evil world and all that it offers you, for when you love these things, you show that you do not love God . . . —1 John 2:15 (TLB)

Some aspects of daily life are not sinful in themselves but tend to lead to sin if abused. Abuse means “extreme use,” and, in many instances, overusing things lawfully becomes a sin. Ambition is essential to the character but must be fixed on legal objects and exercised in proper proportion. Thinking about the necessities of life and taking care of one’s family is essential, but this can degenerate into anxiety, and then, as Christ reminded us, the cares of this life choke the spiritual seed in the heart.

Making money is essential for daily living, but money-making is apt to degenerate into money-loving, and then the deceitfulness of riches enters and spoils our spiritual life. Much of the so-called worldliness in Christian circles is misunderstood. You cannot confine it to a particular rank, walk, or life circumstance and say that one person is spiritual and another is unspiritual. Worldliness is spirit, an atmosphere, an influence permeating life and human society, and it must be guarded against constantly and strenuously.

Prayer for the day:

Lord, keep me sensitive to Your Spirit that I may not fall into the spirit of worldliness and its lusts.

This was written by Billy Graham, Founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). BGEA exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ by every effective means and to equip the church and others to do the same.

Ambydennis Notice Board: Until you are born again, God’s abiding presence will never be with you. It would be best if you were born again to enjoy continuous victory. Please say the displayed prayer below in faith:

Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe that You died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank You, Lord, for keeping me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
