What will dull my spiritual sensitivity?

Isaiah 6:5I said, “My destruction is sealed, for I am a sinful man and a member of a sinful race. Yet I have seen the King, the Lord Almighty!”

A lack of a fresh awareness of God’s holiness will dull your sensitivity to the sin in your life.

Psalm 19:12-1412How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults.13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin.14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

Forgetting that our capacity for sin is expressed in many ways can dull us spiritually. Counteract this tendency by asking God for help in areas you are not even consciously aware of.

Ephesians 4:19They don’t care anymore about right and wrong, and they have given themselves over to immoral ways. Their lives are filled with all kinds of impurity and greed.

2 Chronicles 25:27After Amaziah turned away from the Lord, there was a conspiracy against his life . . .

Matthew 13:14-15This fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah, which says: “You will hear my words, but you will not understand; you will see what I do, but you will not perceive its meaning. For the hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes . . .”

Giving up on fighting evil and giving into sinful desires will dull your spiritual sensitivity.

2 John 1:9-11If you wander beyond the teaching of Christ, you will not have fellowship with God . . .

Time away from God dulls your spiritual sensitivities. The more time you spend ignoring God, the less sensitive you will be toward his presence and his leading.

Revelation 2:14And yet I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you who are like Balaam who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to worship idols by . . . committing sexual sin.

Compromising with sin will eventually dull your sensitivity to it.
