Recover from a stale spiritual life
Blogger Cory Collins asked for suggestions on how to keep faith alive:
How can we avoid – or recover from – a stale, dry, and weak spiritual life? What works for you that may help others of us? What does the Word of God tell us about refreshment?
Here’s my answer:
One of the best ways to keep faith from growing stale and to stay alive in the Lord is through teaching the Good News to others. There are few experiences more satisfying, more invigorating, than to be a part of someone’s conversion, to look anew at the faith through the eyes of someone who is just now discovering it. Being on the front line of the gospel keeps us sharp spiritually, helps us deal with the real life issues that others are facing, and helps us to give the proper value to the precious blood which purchased our salvation at so great a cost.
