TRANSLATING SPIRITUALITY

Wednesday Devotional

“Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.‘ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you” (Acts 17:23-24).

Asking someone if they are interested in spirituality is like asking a farmer if he is interested in rain; a soldier in the foxhole if he is interested in peace; a married couple if they are interested in open and honest communication. Spirituality is esoteric, random, and indiscriminate. In contrast, faith is the spiritual renewal resulting from a commitment to the Lord Jesus and seeks, not to just believe certain truths, but labors intentionally to see these fulfilled in one’s present activities and future pursuits.
