Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
Your immune system is essential for your survival. Without an immune system, our bodies would be open to attack from bacteria, viruses, parasites, and more. It is our immune system that keeps us healthy as we drift through a sea of pathogens. It is the same for our spiritual immune system, we have to stay prayed up and in communion with Jesus. If not, we leave our defenses down for the sea of evil spirits to occupy an area of our lives. The Holy Spirit is on constant patrol looking for evil pathogens to destroy just like Christ came to destroy the works of the devil. Our immune system is a complex and extricate process, and so is our battle with sin. We have been given such a precious gift of faith and we must do everything we can to walk in it. Your spiritual immune system depends on it. God does not just want you to survive, He wants you to thrive even in this sinful world. He has provided for us an innate immunity, which is our natural protection of conscious that we are born with and a first line of defense to combat sin. Then we have adaptive immunity which is supernatural protection that we gain throughout our life in the Spirit. As we are exposed to trials and tribulation, the Holy Spirit begins to transform us into the image of Christ. Making us stronger and wiser, able to resist sin and chose the way of righteousness instead. Renewing our minds from dead works, giving us new life and a hope that lives on. We go from spiritual darkness to marvelous light, able to enjoy great spiritual health even in a dying body.
