I Was A Spiritual Zombie

"...we learn to live with death. We learn to live with a spiritual corpse. We learn to live with our breath frosty and our cheeks pale, our toes frostbitten, without spirituality; yet we learn to live with that. We imagine it is normal. We write books to prove it is normal. It is not normal at all. It is subnormal, abnormal, below normal."

A. W. Tozer, The Mystery of the Holy Spirit

I read this passage this morning, and it struck a chord with me.

I think spiritual death creeps up on us and finds us unawares. THAT'S why it's so insidious, and why it's so prevalent in the modern church today.

Only when I began to see I was the walking dead, did God begin to bring me to life again.
