A Christian needs to take stock of his or her life if it pleases God. spiritual awakening is a form of alertness , for us fasten our seat belt on the wheel called life.
A Christian must in occasion query his ways , habit, and attitude to know if he is actually in tune with God’s set standard.
A Christian life without evaluation as at when due is equal to spiritual deadness.
Apostle Paul is reminding the church in Ephesus about their spiritual position before coming to Christ Eph2:1-10.
Paul is talking about spiritual state not physical.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”Matt5:16.
The Ephesians were alive physically like you and l hale and hearty. But they are spiritually dead.
Many paraded the street with the name Christian but they are spiritually dead.
Many pastors, Shepherds Deacons, Prophets are empty because they are spiritually dead.
The spiritual deadness manifest from the worldly affections. It’s a recipe prepared by Satan and it’s device.
That’s why Paul reminded us in vs5 how we were rescued when we were in sin.
“Even though when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
We were once dead in sin through our act of disobedience through our flesh and body desire.
But Christ through his Grace kept us alive because of his Love and compassion for u and l.
Each time we are spiritually he made us alive in Christ
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one:Rom3:10
The spirit of awakening to do his will Shall not elude us in Jesus name and his Grace shall be sufficient for us in Jesus name.
