Matthew 25:29

Posted by joncooper

Matthew 25:29: “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.”

This is an interesting principle that is easily missed. Another way to put it is that actions have consequences. People’s spiritual lives do not stay in one place: they are constantly moving in one direction or another. Those who are moving toward God and who are engaged in the passionate pursuit of Him will find that God will bless them with more. He will reward those who actively seek Him. However, those who have no interest in God or who are too lazy to seek Him will find themselves enshrouded in an ever-growing cloud of darkness.

If you are seeking God then you can expect to find Him – and the closer you draw to Him, the more you will find! However, those who aren’t seeking Him will gradually find their spiritual life falling apart as they slide into darkness. It is like taking a coal out of the fire and setting it on the ground: eventually it will lose all its heat and will become utterly cold and unresponsive.

Your spiritual life will either be getting hotter or colder. It is not going to stay the same. If you find yourself getting colder, then you should seriously consider a change in direction.
