Spiritual Zombies

Shows about zombies have always creeped me out. They are weird. The whole concept is so foreign and obscene to me. The premise for zombie content has never changed. It all starts with a disease of some sort. That starts off small and misunderstood. Then it starts spreading like wild fire. As soon as you know it, people are half alive and half dead zombies running around. Desiring to convert one another into the same thing they are. Although this content is obscene and grotesque, there are some spiritual take-aways that I can appreciate. The first is before the disease spreads all the doctors ignore it and shrug it off. Shrugging off the beginning of a spiritual issue can turn into something huge later. The second is when people are infected with the said disease it turns them into half alive and half dead people. In the same way, we can have “diseases” of laziness, complacency, and passiveness in our lives. Those diseases leave us walking around like spiritual zombies. Half alive and half dead. Thirdly, the disease in these movies are very contagious. We know that when we are around people who gossip, mistreat others, or are of the flesh. We can so easily mimic the same habits and behaviors. Jesus in Revelation 3:1 “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.” Jesus here is speaking to spiritual zombies. A people that are “alive” but inside in their hearts are dead. This coming sabbath we will be unpacking together what being alive and dead really mean. Connected to the Vine, Pastor Victor Reina
