SPIRITUAL

Dag Heward-Mills

 

READ: 2 Corinthians 1:12

This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

James 3:15

 

Businessmen are important in the business world. Doctors are important in the health world but in the church, spiritual men are the important ones. Apostle Paul subjected his writings to spiritual men because he knew that it was only spiritual people who would know whether what he was saying was from God or not.

You must aim to be a spiritual person who lives under the influence of the Holy Spirit. The sweet influences of the Holy Spirit will turn you into a spiritual person. On the contrary, if you do not live under the influence of the Holy Spirit you will surely come under other influences.

You will either be under an earthly influence, a sensual influence or a devilish influence. It is not difficult to pick out an earthly man, a sensual man or a devilish person. We see them around all the time. Instead of being spiritual, many Christians are earthly, sensual or devilish!

A sensual person is ruled by his senses and feelings. He follows his appetites and pursues any thing he sees or likes. A sensual person will eat a lot, sleep a lot, have lots of sex and engage in any kind of pleasure that is available. Many young people start their lives by following their senses. The discos, the nightclubs and the parties are filled with people dancing away their lives and following their sensuality to its ultimate conclusion. Drug dealers and drug users are men who follow their senses to their own destruction.
