Feed Yourself Spiritually

I searched the Internet on feeding yourself spiritually. These are some of the articles that came up. A mature Christian should be able to feed himself. Why do people say they need to be fed spiritually at church? It is because they are not being responsible for themselves.

Let us not be foolish but learn what the will of God is. Eph 5:17

How to Feed Yourself Spiritually
AUTHOR: Rev J.A.McBean Sr
Badly written, but good ideas.

People must be more responsible for their own life.

Spiritual Maturity

Make a choice to learn God's word.
Make a choice to live by God's viewpoint.
Learn to walk in the Holy Spirit's control.
Make a choice to live in the promises of God.

Take inventory of what gives you the highs and lows of your life.
This will give an indication of what your driving purpose of your life.
Rom 7:18 - 8:14 explain we can't change our heart without Christ.

Here is one of my studies on a Plan for Devotional Bible Study.
Here is an article on Waiting on the Lord.


  1. Another "spot on" post.

    Why is it so many Christians don't study God's Word prayerfully? They make all sorts of excuses, including "lack of time!" The plain and simple truth is either they are too lazy or on the other end of the scale i.e. genuinely too busy! If the latter, they are busier than God intended them to be.

    Each needs to examine their hearts and prioritse what is important because the things which pertain to eternal matters - matter!

    There is much good information contained in this blog and I pray that the Lord will lead others to a realisation of what His Holy Spirit has been teaching you through His Word.
