C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Reasons Why One 'Might' Be Spiritually Challenged

1. One does not know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
2. One does not believe that the scriptures are God’s Word to man.
3. One does not strive to live in obedience outlined in the scriptures.
4. One does not repent and ask forgiveness for sin.
5. One does not have a prayer life.
6. One does not read, study, and mediate in the Word of God.
7. One does not maintain fellowship with other believers.

Any number of these things I have listed, along with others that you may know of, can cause any of us to be Spiritually Challenged. Judge yourself and see which areas you need improvements and what areas you may be able to help others in. We all need to grow as Christians. We should make Christianity our lifestyle and not just a name tag that has no bearing on who and what we really are on the inside.

Good points Tim.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
