Some examples of lazy Christians are as follows:
Lazy Christians are less attacked by the devil, because they have already given him full control of their lives. When we own something, we don't pursue or seek to own it anymore, right?
This concept is as much a part of the spiritual world as it is a part of the physical. You gave the devil control over your life when you are more obedient to him than you are to GOD.
Lazy Christians are lukewarm, and when something is lukewarm it becomes tasteless, and is of no use to GOD.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
When GOD spits you out of His mouth, it is because you've become tasteless, due to your laziness and lack of faith in Him.
At this point, satan don't even waste time to send his demons to attack you, because he already got you.
When GOD spits you out of His mouth, it is dangerous. Because whether you believe it or not, to be lazy in GOD'S work, is a decision to serve the devil and reject GOD.
Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost and it is because of laziness in doing the things of GOD why you are defective.
Romans 6:13-14 King James Version (KJV)
Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
The decision you make when temptations come, will determine whether or nor you are a lazy Christian.
You must make a choice; whether you are going to yield to the devil's temptations, and be on your way to eternal damnation; or you are going to be obedient to the Words of the LORD, and be on your way to eternal life.
I am not perfect and I too have been at the place where reading the Word of GOD became a chore. Let us be honest, one of the main reasons why we would not study our Bible is laziness. Right?
We do not prioritized Scripture reading the way we prioritized other books and television watching.
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
If we are to be qualified to do the work of the LORD, daily Bible studies, must be of significant necessity in our lives.
When we are lazy we become spiritually weak. We might be baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, but without prayer we don't have a relationship with GOD.
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
We may have the desire to spend time with the LORD and delight in Him, but we have to get rid of the spirit of laziness if we are going to follow through on our desire to spend time with Him in prayer.
"Prayer will make a man cease from sin as sin will make a man cease from prayer." John Bunyon
Prayer can seem like a huge chore, especially when we have been lazy Christians. The Bible said that Epaphras was "always labouring fervently for you in prayers" (Colossians 4:12) Prayer takes great effort and work if we are truly praying like we should.
We can get back in the present of the LORD by making prayer a priority. When we give carnal stuff priority over prayer, we are allowing the spirit of idolatry to dominate our lives.
Nothing should take priority over time spent with our GOD in prayer.
"I have so much to do that I shall have to spend the first three hours in prayer." Martin Luther
God bless you.

Break the curse from off your life in the name of Jesus. Be it curse of poverty, singleness, generational curses or curse of rejection, destroy it with the prayer of faith.
