Paying attention to your spiritual needs is going to make you happier. It is also going to help you deal effectively with any challenges that may come your way. If you are spiritually minded, you will handle things in a better way.

The question this is likely going to be on your mind is –how do I become a spiritual person and enjoy the benefits that are stated above? The answer to that question is not as complicated as you may think; it is, in fact quite straightforward and easy to do. 

Just before we dive right into that, we are first going to be looking at what the bible has to say about spirituality. 

What is a spiritual person?

The apostle Paul helps us to understand what a spiritual person is like. He did this by showing the differences between a physical man and a spiritual man. (1 Corinthians 2 14-16)

A physical man does not give preference to the thing of the lord. He looks at them as foolishness. On the other hand, a spiritual man is one who examines all things. The apostle Paul described him as having the mind of Christ.

Identifying a physical man 

Paul’s letter to the Congregation in Corinthian enlisted some characteristics that are similar to that of a physical person.  They included- taking sides, promoting division and many more. A physical person is likely going to succumb to temptation. He gives up way too easily. 

Identifying a spiritual man

A spiritual person is the complete opposite of a physical person. He is drawn towards God. He strives to do imitate Jehovah’s God. 

Rather than succumbing to the things of the flesh, he endeavors to cultivate the fruitage of the sprite. He is mindful of his affairs and has strong religious values. 

Why take your spirituality seriously?

Do you know that the Bible speaks highly of spiritually-minded persons? The book of Matthew describes spiritually-minded people as happy. (Matthew 5:3)  As Christians, we need to set out minds on spiritual things so that we can enjoy Jehovah’s blessing now and in the future. 

Final note 

To conclude, it is important for you to have it in mind that your environment can have a serious impact on your spiritual life. This, therefore, mean that you should work very hard to prevent yourself from being contaminated by the things of the flesh. Your focus should be on becoming spiritually stronger.
