Last Sunday, the pastor at the church I attend introduced a concept/notion/idea that I had not heard before, “spiritual obesity.” I had not considered that the act of going to church each Sunday, reading the bible, praying, etc and not putting the learnings into action could lead to “spiritual obesity.”
Here is a link to his sermon, its the sermon by Pastor Kevin on May 8th.
Here’s also a plethora of other sermon’s on “Spiritual Obesity.” Spiritual Obesity Sermons
I’m reminded of a bible verse read at my fathers funeral. Dad wasn’t “spiritual obese”, he worked on being “spiritually fit” every day by being the best husband, father and friend he could be, helping others, being bold with his faith, etc, I need to do the same every day.
2 Timothy 4:7 (ERV)
