Being healthy spiritual can provide us with many benefits, such as better mood, less anxiety, less depression, fewer aches and illnesses, knowledge that God is in control of all things, a sense of purpose and meaning, provides a means of understanding suffering, provides connection with other people of faith, and helps our central point of focus remain on God rather than ourselves.
Just as we visit our doctor for annual medical checkups, we need to monitor our spiritual health often and allow the Holy Spirit to give us a spiritual checkup. Using Romans 12:9-21 as a basis for our spiritual examination, ask the Holy Spirit to examine you in each area in these verses. What did the Holy Spirit reveal to you? Take time to repent where needed and consider what improvements God wants you to make at this
A spiritual healthy person should be consistently becoming more and more like Christ. In Ephesians 5:1, Paul wrote: “Therefore, be imitators of Christ, as dearly loved children.”
From the moment of salvation, we should be nurturing and tending our spiritual selves as we grow in our walk with Christ, ever learning more and more about what being a Christian means.
As we repent of our sins and ask Christ to be our Lord and Savior, our spiritual self that was dead and lost in sin comes alive and we are a new creation as the blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin.
