Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional Sunday January 7th 2018
Topic: Carnal Christians and Spiritual Christians
Key Verse: Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].1 Corinthians 13:7
Message: There are two kinds of Christians, and you have to choose which one you will be. Will you be a carnal Christian or a spiritual Christian?
A carnal Christian is a people-pleaser who cares more about what people think than about obeying God. They are immature, operating out of their emotions and doing whatever they feel like saying and doing. They are usually in strife, discontent, easily offended and lacking peace.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional: Rose-Colored Glasses and Magnifying Glasses
A spiritual Christian is someone who diligently follows after the desires of the Holy Spirit. They feed their spirit with the Word every day, letting God into every area of their life. Their relationship with God is the focus of their life every day of the week, not just during church once a week.
If you haven’t done it already, I urge you today to make a full-time commitment to follow Christ. Let the Lord into everything you do. Walk in love, with integrity, humility and peace. Get along with others. Display the fruit of the Spirit and enjoy the favor of God.
Prayer: God, I don’t want to be a carnal Christian, always led by the flesh. Instead, I want to be led by the Holy Spirit, living a life that pleases You. I choose today to be a spiritual Christian, not a carnal one. Amen!
