Spiritual balanced diet is one that gives your spirit the nutrients it needs to function correctly.
A spiritual balanced diet is important because your spiritual organs and tissues need proper nutrition to work effectively. Without good spiritual nutrition, your spirit is more prone to disease, infection, fatigue, and poor performance. Children of God with a poor diet run the risk of growth and developmental problems and poor spiritual performance.
As good as protein and minerals are to the body, without balancing them with other diets, it will be suicidal. And so it is spiritually; as good as messages on holiness and faith are to the spirit, it is suicidal not to balance them with other spiritual diet.
The Word of God is the food of the spirit. Christians who therefore neglect some parts of the scriptures to over-emphasize some other parts because it suits them will die of spiritual kwashiorkor.
Christians who don’t feed on good spiritual diet are liable to have poor growth.
Jesus Christ said “The words I speak to you are spirit and life.” Every word of God has the capacity to give life if it is properly applied.
Many Christians today are suffering from spiritual leanness for lack of good spiritual diet. “And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.” -Psalm 106:15 KJV
Some other Christians are suffering from malnutrition because they belong to assemblies where they are only taught about Prosperity and Faith alone; or Holiness and Righteousness alone; or Deliverance and Healing alone, etc
As good as all these mentioned above are, without a balance of all the Gospel core values, such is tantamount to spiritual malnutrition.
Beware of churches who claim they are specialists in Prosperity or Deliverance without teaching or feeding you with other aspects of the Gospel. Staying in such places will make you an imbalanced Christian. It is not wrong to be gifted in one area; such as the Healing ministry – but dwelling only on Healing and watering down other aspects of the Gospel is a sure path to death because the Gospel itself is a total package.
