Christian Spiritual Journey: 10 Guidelines for a Safe Trip!

Christian spiritual journey is the activities you do every day through Jesus Christ with the strong determination to gain Heaven.

Today’s sermon would broaden your knowledge about Christian spiritual journey and how to survive the rough path.

Types of Spiritual Journey

There are two types of spiritual journey;

1. Christ-like Spiritual Journey

This journey requires constant obedience to the instructions of the Holy Spirit and the use of Bible as the spiritual map.

Jesus says: “Enter by the narrow gate…Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)

2. Demonic Spiritual Journey

Devil is the instructor of this course. Example of such practices include; conjure of spirits, astral projection, witchcraft, bloody rituals etc.

Jesus warned: “…for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” (Matthew 7:13)

When Does a Spiritual Journey Starts?

It starts from the ‘womb’ when God forms your body, soul and spirit. We are spiritually formed, so everything that happens in the physical realm has a spiritual implication.

Your spiritual journey starts when you don’t know the difference between good and bad and the Angel of the LORD have the responsibility to guide you.

Jesus says: “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10)

But, the presence of God’s Angel in your life may be short-lived if your parents were not faithful to the LORD and at that moment the Devil takes over the spiritual journey.

I grew up to know that the Devil’s spiritual journey I followed could not give me eternal rest so I quit and followed Jesus Christ.

How to Start a Christian Spiritual Journey?

“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

The following steps are vital for you to enjoy a successful trip with the LORD:

1. Quit the Devil

2. Come to Jesus Christ

3. Confess your sins to the LORD

4. Be baptised

5. Read your Bible daily and Meditate the Word of God

6. Live an obedient life as directed by the LORD

7. Share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus with your friends.

When you follow the seven steps above, then your Christian spiritual journey will start on a solid rocky foundation.

What Happens on a Christian Spiritual Journey?

I would sincerely tell you the truth that the spiritual journey with Jesus Christ is not a smooth one. There is time to climb the steep mountains, move through the thick forest and stay at the dry and wet valleys before proceeding on the rough narrow path.

Jesus says: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

There is bad times, good seasons, trials and temptations. Time to mourn and time to give birth. So, don’t be discouraged!

Matthew chapter 10 verse 16 says: “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore, be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Why is the Christian Journey a Rough One?

You have made the right choice by becoming a Christian. But, don’t turn back when you go through the tough part of the spiritual journey.

Many people walk through the demonic spiritual journey because they are deceived with sweet things of this world which are short-lived. And, unfortunately the end of their journey leads to hell fire.

Christians spiritual journey is a rough one on earth due to the presence of the Devil who strive to attack and discourage us from getting to Heaven.

Read Revelation chapter 12 to have a deep spiritual understanding for the reason Christian spiritual journey is tougher than the demonic path.

And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:17)
