Stagnancy of Spirit
Have you felt uncomfortable talking about God? Like you’re viewed as stupid? Maybe you don’t want to be public about it? I know that a few times I’ve thought to myself, “Well, I could get into this, but man, it’s not going to be pretty.” It can be hard to even be open about your Christianity if you’re suffering from those mindsets.
Ultimately, Jesus told us to pray for laborers to go into the harvest, but it’s tempting for us to say, “I’ll pray for laborers, but I don’t want to do it myself. That’s not really my calling. I’ll just be on the sidelines and encourage those who are working.”
In Zephaniah 1:12, God had harsh words for a certain group, saying,
“It will come about at that time that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And I will punish the men who are stagnant in spirit…”
We cannot afford to be stagnant in spirit. Those who are not with Christ also can’t afford our complacency.
Those who refuse to stand against Satan ultimately aid him, which is why God became so upset in the above passage. Don’t let Satan keep you quiet! Don’t let him convince you that spreading the good news isn’t possible anymore! “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind!” (2 Tim 1:7)
