We Cannot Overdo Christianity

We cannot be too committed to the Lord. We cannot overdo serving Him. The Apostle Paul acknowledged that he himself was fleshly and carnal and therefore understood well that all believers are. The question is not whether or not we are carnal but how often we are carnal and do we regret it and repent of it.

Romans 7:14: For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Romans 8:7: Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

1 Corinthians 3:1: And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

With God*s help we can be spiritual.

Galatians 6:1: Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Do you think that anyone who wants to pray all the time is a bit fanatical? Something wrong too with anyone who wants to read his Bible often? You, on the other hand, keep your prayers short and only drop to your knees in emergencies. When a particular jam is over you say, *OK, God, I can take over and manage things myself now.*

What are some symptoms of neglecting the means of grace? You*re not found among Christians. There*s always some excuse for avoiding a spiritual meeting. You*re more at ease talking about secular subjects. Bring a Bible thought up in your home…and an uncomfortable silence follows. You can tell exactly where the Sox or Cubs or Yankees or Angels are in the standings, but you stare blankly when thinking of the last missionary victory won.

I am amazed at how many Christians have nothing new from the Lord! They*ve dead-ended spiritually -- no growth, no vitality! They can expertly assist you in cutting the throat of someone they do not like in the church or in Christian work, but cannot assist in feeding your soul -- or theirs -- from God*s Word.

Small thought here. If you*re not interested in the things of God, you are an empty house full of empty rooms. Unless you*ve had a real experience with God, how do you think you will ever enter the pearly gates? If you consistently neglect the means of grace, you had better examine yourself to see if you are truly saved.
