And so most of us feel a little bit frustrated, because we think that what we do every day—our work and our rest—how we play and unwind and enjoy God’s world—is meaningless and doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of eternal life. Because in a Hebrew worldview, all of life is spiritual.Or we feel a twinge of guilt, because every time we come home from work and drink a glass of really good wine or watch a great film or eat a delicious meal, we feel this nagging sense of shame because we enjoy it so much—it feels right and earthy and human—but it’s not “spiritual.” Look up the word “spiritual” in Genesis to Malachi—the Bible used by Jesus. Even when you get to the New Testament, the word spiritual is really only used by Paul.In his writings, it means “animated by the Holy Spirit.” And for Paul, every facet of our life should be spiritual.I think if you had asked Jesus about His spiritual life, He would have looked at you very confused.Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a feverish search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.
