1 Corinthians 12:1-2
What comes to mind when you hear the word erosion? You’re probably thinking about how land or rocks erode over time. Similarly, degradation in our spiritual lives tends to proceed gradually over months or years.
What is the source of this spiritual stagnation and deterioration? The solution is frequent conformity to the world’s techniques and beliefs, as well as compromise with sin. When we allow culture to mould our thoughts, attitudes, and aspirations, the process of erosion begins in the mind. We quickly learn to adhere to the godless and evil behavior that surrounds us.
Is your spiritual life progressing as you would like it to? Has it been gradually weakened by global pressures? Are you allowing social media, other people’s opinions, and culture to influence your thinking, wants, and ambitions? If this is the case, the only way to counteract the erosion is to return to the Lord in obedience and allow Scripture to renew your mind with His truth. Your wants and behaviors will conform to God’s perfect will as you learn to perceive life through God’s eyes.
