Carnal Christians and Spiritual Christians - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 7 January Sunday

You are still worldly [controlled by ordinary impulses, the sinful capacity]. For as long as there is jealousy and strife and discord among you, are you not unspiritual, and are you not walking like ordinary men [unchanged by faith]?
— 1 Corinthians 3:3
A carnal Christian is a people-pleaser who cares more about what people think than about obeying God. They are immature, operating out of their emotions and doing whatever they feel like saying and doing. They are usually in strife, discontent, easily offended and lacking peace.
A spiritual Christian is someone who diligently follows after the desires of the Holy Spirit. They feed their spirit with the Word every day, letting God into every area of their life. Their relationship with God is the focus of their life every day of the week, not just during church once a week.
If you haven’t done it already, I urge you today to make a full-time commitment to follow Christ. Let the Lord into everything you do. Walk in love, with integrity, humility and peace. Get along with others. Display the fruit of the Spirit and enjoy the favor of God.
