Do You Need a Spiritual Adjustment?
An article in the newspaper stated that as many as 75% of those who died last year of heart attacks might have been saved if they had adjusted their lifestyle. If these people had just stopped smoking, lost weight, exercised more or taken other preventive measures they might be alive today. The problem the article said is that these people just ignored the good advice.
People carry this same attitude into their spiritual well being. God has told us how to become a Christian and how to grow but people ignore the advice. God has told us what is evil and to flee from all appearances of evil but people have ignored the advice. People follow man-made religions, follow after the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. They have evil friends who affect their lifestyle. They live a life of ignoring God’s advice.
Yes, people will ignore the advice on how to live a longer life and will have to face the consequences as these people have. If we expect to be pleasing to the Lord and have a home in heaven, we cannot ignore the advice from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We can all find that advice in God’s word, the Bible.
So the question for all of us today, Do you need a spiritual adjustment for your spiritual well being? If the answer is yes, Paul tells us that today is the day of salvation. Today is the day to be spiritually healthy.
