The Danger Of Spiritual Apathy

The Danger Of Spiritual Apathy

teshuva, jesus, God, love, obey, the wordMost times it begins in ways that are not counted as anything and blossoms into what it is. First prayer is less and then is suddenly not happening, then the postponement of the study of the word to a “better” or “more convenient” time, then church service becomes a drudgery and reasons for not attending emerge. It doesn’t take long before the person completely loses sensitivity to the things of the Spirit and sensualism takes effect. Then the person indulges in vile and base things and responds to every whim of the flesh, carnality takes over the mind and body… a dangerous place to be…

When your mind begins to entertain thoughts that are not holy, it is time to rise up and get back in line so that spiritual apathy is put away. You must fight to keep your prayer life alive and refuse to starve yourself of God’s word.

In their spiritual apathy they have become callous and past feeling and reckless and have abandoned themselves [a prey] to unbridled sensuality, eager and greedy to indulge in every form of impurity [that their depraved desires may suggest and demand]. Ephesians 4:19 (AMP)

  1. Yep! Been there! My safety plan is to keep the communion whichever way I can. The Word can be ‘fed on’ in different ways: reading, listening to an audio recording or even a dramatised edition, listening to sermons etc. If I can’t sing, I listen to those who can and before you know it, I’m ‘praising’ along. God is everywhere; if I am in the bathroom and know I could be too tired to have a prayer session, I pray as I take a bath. God’s not offended! Simply put, I keep the lines of communication open anyway I can. When we plan our prayer time so rigorously, the devil also rigorously plans to hinder us!

    1. Keeping the communication lines with God open which ever way is very important if we must not slip into spiritual apathy.

  2. Timely post.

    1. Amen!
