Increase My Spiritual Awareness

ENGLISH

The saying is trustworthy, for:

If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful

for he cannot deny himself.—2 Timothy 2:11-13

Here are the four spiritual realities that Paul tells Timothy to trust in.

  1. We are spiritually united with Jesus in his death and resurrection.
  2. We are spiritually united with Jesus when we endure a trial.
  3. We can spiritually deny Jesus, but if we do, he will deny us.
  4. We should be spiritually committed to Jesus because he is always committed to us.

Paul is telling Timothy that those who are trustworthy over a lifetime have a deep spiritual impact. To have this deep effect, we must know these spiritual realities and live cognizant of them. Because a trustworthy follower has this spiritual connection to the work, experiences, challenges, and mission of Jesus Christ.

In our time, I think some Christians may feel disconnected from this reality. But just because we spiritually feel this way, this does not change our spiritual reality. The reality is we are deeply connected to Christ. Even in moments, we are less cognitively aware of what Christ is doing in and around us. Even as we go through the routine of our day, sometimes completely unaware of a spiritual reality, Jesus is always working and present.

The call to action is for us to become more spiritually aware. We should increase our awareness by giving notice to how the Triune God is moving about us. So today, don't go through your natural routine ignoring your spiritual reality. See your day spiritually. Notice those interruptions, problems, challenges, and conversations as divine appointments which give way to the work, experiences, challenges, and mission of Jesus Christ. Open your eyes to a spiritual reality.

    Having just read this as the day is almost over… not sure I did this very well today. Surely there were opportunities.

    Tomorrow I meet up with a fellow brother for a first meeting. I also meet up with a woman I would love to reconcile with. I know God will be there every step of the way.

    I’m currently in the hospital as I experienced stroke like symptoms. After many tests it was determined that I didn’t have a stroke but from a spiritual perspective, I think this is a sign for me to let go of my stressors and let God handle the issues and circumstances in my life.

      Alexander, may God be with you and your family today as you go through this difficult and holy calling of adoption. The road is long and difficult, and the work is holy and important. May you find peace and comfort today, and may you receive the next piece of news you are waiting for.
