What State are You In

No, I’m not talking about one of the 50 United States. What state is your spiritual life in. In a George Barna survey he found that only 15% of Christians say that their relationship with God is highly important. That means that 85% of us have a spiritual life that is in a state of decline. What do I do you ask? I believe there are 5 keys to turning around that decline. 1. Repent. Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sin. 2. Restore. Ask for your life, relationships etc. to be restored. 3. Revive. In the book of Ezekiel God not only restored dry bones into bodies but he revived them back to life with his breath . 4. Review. Review means to examine. Paul tells us in the book of 1 Corinthians to examine ourselves before we take communion…that review should be a daily part of our life as a Christian. 5. Retool. It always helps to have the right tool for the right job. If you find yourself constantly fighting spiritual decline maybe your not using the right tools…the Bible, prayer and worship. Try these steps and see what God builds in you.
