Prospering Again

"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." III John 1:2
So often I take my health for granted.  Just under two days ago I suddenly came down with a nasty stomach virus.  Within a few hours I went from being strong and healthy to waking Jeff up so he could lift Abby out of the crib for me.   I was that weak.  I am so grateful that I recovered quickly and today feel normal once again.

It's simple enough for us to realize we are physically ill, but what about the state of our spiritual life?  How healthy is our soul?  Are we dehydrated from a lack of filling up on the Living Water and Word?  Have we exposed ourselves to a virus or parasite by not suiting up with the protection offered us? (Ephesians 6:10-18)

Spurgeon said "The great test of your soul's health is, What think you of Christ?"
