Choosing Spiritual Life

How much are we thinking about our spiritual life when we sin?


Romans 6:23

We are all aware at some level that we have an end to our earthly lives. We may not always be thinking about it but it must cross our minds from time to time. Likewise, we are at least subconscious that we are currently alive, living, breathing when we wake up.

But how much time have we thought about our spiritual lives? If we are nurturing our spiritual life? Have we contemplated on the extremity of what spiritual death means?

When looking at the earthly we may not readily see the effects of our sin. Sin being the moving away from God. From the source of life. But through a heavenly perspective, every sin is catastrophic more especially if we do not turn back to Jesus.

When sin leads us away from God, Jesus, who is so close to us, can bring us back. All we need to do is acknowledge our sins, turn back to Christ, and ask for forgiveness. And as Jesus said, “sin no more.”
