Q: For a believer to surround their earthly life entirely around the relationship of jesus. No interaction with the outside world beside the necessities. I entertain very little. sports & music has lost it flavor, even the company & family. Is this considered to be spiritually healthy?

A: Yes this is a great season of purification in your life. That’s awesome to hear how your heart is changing. It’s awesome for the pleasures and iniquities of this world to lose their influence on our soul.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

However it’s never good to lose physical fellowship with other believers that are following Jesus like you are. A true faithful relationship with Jesus is always in the footsteps of the flock (fellowshippingwith other believers), always teaching and feeding the younger, and always connected to shepherds (spiritual elders and leaders). You can see this in Song of Solomon 1:7-8.

Isolation can be a short season of fasting & prayer, but it becomes dangerous if pride starts to see isolation as a lifestyle.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
