6 Reasons Christ Followers Aren’t Spiritually Healthy

Why don’t true followers of Christ embrace the lifestyle of a Christ-centered disciple and disciple-maker?

  1. An inability to say “no.” Most Christians are too busy. We have allowed the world to set our life’s schedule. You can’t say “no” until you have a bigger “yes.” To have a bigger “yes,” you have to know God’s priorities from his Word, which also gives you the biblical principles to make wise decisions.
  2. Shortchanging your alone time with the Lord.
  3. Living beyond your means.
  4. Forfeiting the opportunity to give sacrificially.
  5. Neglecting to fast.
  6. Succumbing to sexual sin.

I struggle with some of these in different seasons so I understand the ease in which we slide out of being Christ-centered. But hopefully this list will remind us to re-orient ourselves and get “right” again with the help of the Holy Spirit.

  1. I’m constantly working on a few of those items, but specifically on #1. I find it difficult to find the bigger “yes” when I’m busy with too many things that should have been or should now be “no’s.”
