When Your Spiritual Life Goes Flat

I’ve been asked often if I ever have times when my spiritual life feels flat and I don’t feel God’s presence.

Of course I do. I’ve never met a serious Christian who didn’t!

I’ve described periods in my relationship with Jesus, like and old married couple we’ve all seen, sitting across from each other at a restaurant, saying nothing to each other for minutes at a time. It’s painful to watch.

By that I mean, my only obligation and privilege is to live the gospel and explain the gospel. I don’t have to “get them saved”. That’s the Holy Spirit’s responsibility. Believing that, takes all the pressure off. To illustrate, I went on to tell this story.

Here are two very important questions to consider when we think of the faith journey; “What triggers a decision to be born again, a decision of the non-yet-Christian, or is it God’s decision?”

The second question is even more controversial, “Is belief in Jesus enough to be born again?”

The Spiritual Journey
It’s been my observation that the spiritual journey generally has these elements or stages, although they may not necessarily happen in this order.
