Neglect of Soul

All Christians believe in God, but many Christians have little time for God. They are too busy with everyday affairs to be taken up with Bible reading, prayer, and being thoughtful to their fellowmen. Many of them have lost the spirit of a zealous discipleship. If you ask them if they are Christians, they would probably answer, “I think so,” or, “I hope so.” They may go to church at Easter and Christmas and on other special occasions, but otherwise they have little time for God. They have crowded God out of their lives.

The Bible warns against neglect of your soul. It is possible to harden your heart and shrivel your soul, until you lose your appetite for the things of God. This hunger, then, that you should have is a desire to be always right with God. It is a consciousness that all searching for peace of heart, except in Him, is in vain.

Prayer for the day

I hunger today to know more of You, Lord.

      I don’t know who you are, but I do know that God still cares immensely about you. I was in the same situation, but just talk to him anywhere you are at, whenever you need to, and ask him to help you, and he will. Just keep talking to him, and he will enter into your every day need.

    This was the word God used to draw me back to Himself. (Some 30 years ago) By the grace of God I never returned to a life without Him
