How to cure spiritual stagnation

July 27, 2012

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
            his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
            great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

Have you ever noticed in the Christian life that there’s always the next step of dedication? We always strive to love more, to learn more, and to grow beyond what we’ve been before. The Christian life is a series of new beginnings.

The most exciting part about being a believer in Jesus Christ is the next chapter, the next day, and the next open door that we have. And when it comes to the next step of our growth, we must be aware of the peril of the plateau… of becoming stagnant and still, rather than moving forward for the cause of Christ.

Perhaps as you look at your own life today, you would have to say you’ve plateaued spiritually. Maybe you’ve become sort of laissez faire in your spiritual life and you need to take the next step by renewing your commitment to Jesus Christ. 

In the Christian life, it’s never too late for a new beginning. So whether you’ve been in a holding pattern for days, months, or even years, start new and afresh this day. Remember God’s faithfulness in your life, recommit yourself to growing in His grace, and experience a whole new fullness of life!

WHEN YOU FEEL SPIRITUALLY STAGNANT, RECOMMIT YOURSELF TO GOD’S PURPOSES, REMEMBER HIS FAITHFULNESS, AND EXPERIENCE HIS MERCIES ANEW EVERY DAY!

Face the future with hope!


Dear Friend,

We live in uncertain times—with global economic problems, the threat of terrorism, natural disasters, and violence around the world. But as Christians, you and I can walk into the future with confidence and courage because God has given us hope! And He has provided a clear picture of these last days in His Word.

To help you face the future with confidence and hope, I want to send you two very special resources today: my 3-message DVD series called Israel 2011 and my 10-message CD series,Signs of the Times.

I’ll take you right to the heart of Israel in Israel 2011—to the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Olives and more—to help you walk the footsteps of Jesus Himself and see how this wonderful land plays a part in the last days. And Signs of the Times will show you how you can be ready for Christ’s return.

These two resources are my gifts to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. I pray they will strengthen your faith!
