Lock-down causing Spiritual Decline?

by Yvette van Niekerk

We know that the Church is a living organism, not a building.

I believe for the Church to function correctly, it needs all the organism, we need to meet at least once or twice a week. We must stay connected, think of your own body, if you chop off your toe it will shrivel up and die. I believe we are all created for a specific reason, our roles may differ, but they are a necessary component of the body of Christ.

Romans 12 verse 4 to 5 says: “For just as we have many parts in one body, and not all parts have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and all are parts of one another.”

If any organ removed off from the body, then it will certainly die.  It is not possible to live because the body sustains it.

There is no lifeblood flowing to it and keeping it alive. Do you know the first signs of spiritual death is inconsistent when you supposed to be diligently attending Church or other member meets? We aren’t too concerned about attending meetings because something more important has just cropped up. The slide is slow, but it’s a definite slide downwards. It is essential to love your spiritual family, support them where possible and attend the meetings.

I believe the devil is trying to break the bond between the family members. Thank the Lord Jesus for the Holy Spirit, who is continually reminding us to draw near to Jesus.


Heavenly Father, Lord, please help us during this lock-down, we deprived of fellowship with our members. We pray that during this dead season, You will send us the Holy Spirit, revealing to us the life we have in You. Come, Lord, we need You today. Nothing, we do is ever good enough the only way we will survive is through the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
