IMPROVE YOUR SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT IN LIFE!

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14).

As a Christian, God expects you to improve your spiritual discernment about the things of the Spirit of God in life. Except your spiritual discernment improves, you will continue to remain at the surface about spiritual things of life. In the opening text, the Bible says that the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to constantly improve his spiritual discernment in life. Indeed, spiritual discernment is the ability in possessing the eye of the spirit to function optimally in the realm of the spirit in life forever.

One of the major ways for you to live your life in line with God’s will and purpose is to improve your spiritual discernment in life. When you fail to improve your spiritual discernment, you are living a life full of carnality and self. That is why the Bible says in Romans 8:8, “So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Therefore, whoever fails to improve his spiritual discernment automatically fails in pleasing God in life. A life that does not please God can never bring glory to God (Matthew 5:16). Furthermore, the life that will indeed glorify God must be led by faith with the eye of the spirit through the process of spiritual discernment in life forever.

Again, for a Christian to be spiritually matured, his spiritual discernment ought to be sharpened and sensitive in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrews 5:14, “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who are by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” In fact, through the process of spiritual discernment a Christian becomes fully matured in faith and character in life. The improvement of spiritual discernment increases your sensibility to be able to discern both good and evil in life. Indeed, God expects every Christian to be spiritually sensitive and alert through the gift and process of spiritual discernment in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to improve his spiritual discernment to enable him reigned with God in the realm of the spirit in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Romans 8:6).
