Neglect of Soul

By   •   December 21   •   Topics:

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.

  2. Dan says:

    We must never stop thinking of Jesus Christ and praying because He thinks of us always. His thoughts for us are always love! The cross is the greatest proof of Jesus’ love. It was voluntary also! (John 10:17-18).

  3. Michael says:

    This reminds of at least two neighbors who are fatalistic. They don’t know where they are going at death.

  4. Gerry says:

    When you stop and really think about what the King of all Kings did for us at Calvary, it is very difficult for our human mind to comprehend. Love of that magnitude is unheard of, yet He willingly did that for us. We are the eternal benefactors of that incredible love. Thank you Lord in the highest.

    I feel like I have been neglecting my soul to a certain extent. When I first got saved I couldn’t get enough of God’s Word. But now I realize I was just reading. In the last couple of months it seemed I had stopped. I have been in a Bible study for over a year and I still go to church. I do a couple of devotionals a day and I will read a couple of chapters a day but I feel like I’m still hungry. I’ve got to spend more time in the Word. Thanks for your devotionals.
