Spirituality Without Responsibility Is Insincerity – Pastor Paul Enenche
Scripture: Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.Acts 20:28.
Spirituality is an indispensable necessity for life and destiny. The greatest need of anyone is the need for true spirituality. The most essential needs of man are spiritual needs. When the spiritual is handled, the natural follows. Therefore, a person must give crucial attention to his/her spirituality more than all other things in life.
Now, let me give three things that spirituality would produce in the life of a person:
i) Spirituality is the doorway to responsibility
Every true spiritual person is a responsible person. A spiritual husband, father, employee or employer is a responsible person
To know God well is to do things well. Nothing refines character like spirituality. The closer we get to God, the more like Him we become (2 Corinthians 3:18). Spirituality without responsibility is insincerity.
ii) Spirituality sharpens mentality
The closer to God we are, the more like Him we think. No one can be closely related to the Almighty God and behave like a fool. Distance from God is a distance from sense; disconnection from God is an impartation of stupidity.
iii) Spirituality is the doorway to reliability
The closer people get to God, the more reliable they become in their character (Daniel 6:3). So, the limit of spirituality is the limit of reliability, and reliability is the foundation for authority. Your spirituality will provoke your reliability and your reliability will establish your blessing.
Beloved, my counsel is, develop your spiritual roots in God and let it reflect in the way you live.
Remember this: Spirituality without responsibility is insincerity.
1. Decide to maintain a life of high spirituality.
2. Endeavor to always accept responsibility.
3. Be reliable in everything you do.
4. Approach life with a solid mentality.
