Excessive spiritual fat is not healthy. Christians who feed fat without spiritual exercise will die of spiritual obesity.
Spiritual obesity is a state of being grossly fat or over-weight that results from excessive consumption of spiritual food. As good as spiritual food is, continuous eating without creating room for proper digestion and exercise will generate in excessive weight gain which invariably leads to unwanted sicknesses and diseases.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. -Matthew 10:8 KJV
Christianity is not totally about yourself but about God and others. Many Christians are good in self-development, they attend all manner of Bible studies, prayer meetings, special seminars, retreats etc but do less or nothing to bless or improve the lives of others. They don’t evangelize, pray, minister or disciple others.
Obesity causes laziness and sluggishness – so also does spiritual obesity. A spiritually obese Christian doesn’t see reasons to go out and preach the Gospel to lost souls neither is there zeal to unleash some of his anointing, grace and impartation into the lives of others.
Spiritually, the more you give, the more you receive. Many think that if they give out what they have, they will grow lean spiritually but far from it.
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” -Luke 6:38 KJV
What are you a Christian for? A song writer said “Must I Go An Empty-Handed?”
You have been in the Lord for 15 years but cannot boast of five souls that you’ve won. You are a Christian of 10 years with no single disciple to point at. Your Christianity is nothing if it’s all about you.
This is a call to Christians to exercise their gifts, talents, grace, calling and anointing;
Go out and preach the gospel
Heal the sick
Cast out demons
Make disciples of men
As far as heaven is concern, nothing is as rewarding as winning souls to the kingdom of God because there is unspeakable joy in heaven for every soul that is won to God. Let’s leave the comfort of our mega-churches and reach out to the lost souls.
On the last day when we shall all gather before our Maker, no one will ask you;
How many ACs were in your church?
How many special programs you attended?
How much millions you made by faith?
How beautiful your church was?
How well your pastor can preach with beautiful grammar?
How many rich men own companies in your church etc.
Rather you’ll be asked, how many souls you brought into the kingdom? If you are obese spiritually, the flight of rapture may not be able to carry you due to your weight.
Go on spiritual exercise to reduce your weight today.
