Christian, are you living as a ruin? As spiritually poor?

Imagine you get a notice that someone left you some money, but for various reasons, you assume it is a very modest amount. You get busy and don’t get around even to checking on it for quite a while. Finally, you do so and are thunderstruck to discover it was a fortune, and you had not been doing anything with it. You were actually rich but had been living poor.

Keller, Prayer, p. 168, a challenge from this text:

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, … that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭14, 16-19‬ ESV)

Don’t let your life be a ruin.
