Joyce Meyer's Daily 7 January 2018 Devotional: Carnal Christians and Spiritual Christians

Topic: Carnal Christians and Spiritual Christians [Sunday January 7, 2018]

You are still worldly [controlled by ordinary impulses, the sinful capacity]. For as long as there is jealousy and strife and discord among you, are you not unspiritual, and are you not walking like ordinary men [unchanged by faith]? — 1 Corinthians 3:3

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.

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 Starter: 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.
