Is The Fire Growing Dim Or Gone Out? – Self-Examination

Evaluate your life with the Holy Spirit. Are there signs that you are growing cold in your spirit? Have you left your first love? Can you remember a time in your past when you were hungrier for God than you are right now? If so, you need to repent and ask the Holy Spirit to create a hunger for God within you like you have never had before. Ask Him to fan the flame of passion within you.
Some signs, but not all, that a person has grown cold in their spirit are:
Adopting a world view instead of a Biblical view.
Exchanging God’s values for the worlds.
Becoming complacent toward sin.
Being critical about everything.
Desiring the approval of man instead of God.
Ceasing to give to God’s work or to the needs of others.
Having secret thoughts that do not honor God.
Lack of love for others.
Lack of joy in their life.
Loving temporary riches more than eternal riches.
Making excuses for sin.
Lack of conviction.
No desire to spread the Good News.
Not enjoying times spent in reading or studying God’s Word, or in prayer.
Placing stumbling blocks in front of others.
Taking pleasure in people or things more than they do in God.
Thinking that they are missing out on fun.
Unwillingness to forgive.
Viewing God’s commands as restrictions.
God is not the center of your life anymore.
Separating yourself from other believers.
