Going to the Doctor – Questions to Diagnose your Spiritual Health

As Demps prepares for knee surgery in November we thought we would share the "spiritual" checkup we've all been experiencing here as well.

We live in an increasingly health conscious society. We’re constantly monitoring our weight, exercise, and nutrition as well as paying more and more attention to our vital signs. But, how often do we check in on our spiritual health and what are the vital signs that we should be watching in regards to our souls? These are the questions that we’ve been asking for the last few weeks in our church here. We recently began a 5 week series on Sunday nights to ask, “5 questions to diagnose your spiritual health”. These questions are helping us to evaluate our personal spiritual health and the spiritual health of our church by helping us know and examine critical signposts in the life of a Christian.

The questions that we are asking and talking about are:

Do you thirst for God?
Are you governed increasingly by God’s Word?
Are you more loving?
Do you have a growing concern for the spiritual and temporal needs of others?
Do you yearn for heaven and to be with Jesus?

These questions and the series are stimulated by a book entitled “10 Questions to Diagnose your Spiritual Health” by Donald S. Whitney and is a great resource if you would like to examine your own spiritual health along with us. We will continue this series through the end of October and some of our staff will be sharing on these subjects. Pray for God to use this series in the life of our church to allow every member and visitor to move to greater spiritual well-being.
