A 5 POINT SPIRITUAL HEALTH CHECKUP
Have you had a checkup lately? Regular checkups are important.
In spite of all the advances in medicine, your body will eventually fail you. Your spirit, however, will live on. Have you had a spiritual checkup lately? Here is a 5 point checkup that will take only a minute and could change your life.
1. CHECK YOUR EYES:
Are you looking for God?
Luke 10:23 And he (Jesus) turned unto his disciples, and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see.”
2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2. CHECK YOUR DIET:
Are you eating the right food?
John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
3. CHECK YOUR HEARING:
Can you hear God?
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will eat with him, and he with me.
Luke 11:28 Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
4. CHECK YOUR WALK:
Are you walking with God?
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5. CHECK YOUR HEART:
Is your heart pure?
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
How was your checkup? If you want to be spiritually healthy, there is good medicine available for you. God provided it when he sent his only son, Jesus, to earth to save us. We were doomed because of our choice to ignore God. Romans 6:23 says: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
When Jesus paid the price for our sins he opened the doors of heaven so that all who believe will live eternally as children of God. He gave his life so we can be back in fellowship with our Father.
Here is what Jesus said about himself:
John 10:28 And I (Jesus) give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
If you want to be spiritually well, turn back to your Creator. Ask the Father to forgive your sins. Accept the sacrifice Jesus made on your behalf. Submit to the Father’s will in your life. Your spiritual health will improve more than you could ever imagine.
1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is
