The Grid – Dealing With Apostasy, Carnality, Luke Warmness In the Church [Part 2]
1. WILL IT BENEFIT ME SPIRITUALLY?
All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. (1 Cor. 10:23) A “profitable” thing is useful, helpful, or to your advantage to do; and the idea behind “edify” is to build up spiritually. So based on this verse, ask yourself, “Will doing this enhance my spiritual life? Will it cultivate godliness? Will it build me up spiritually?” If not, you should seriously question whether that behavior is the best choice.
