Topic: SPIRITUAL MATURITY -1
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Spiritual maturity is a process that begins when a person accepts Jesus Christ as Savior. He or she is born again of the Holy Spirit and then chooses to live “in Christ.” The Apostle Paul said, that spiritual growth is an ongoing process. “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:12-14). Even the Apostle Paul had not arrived, he continually pressed toward the prize.
Therefore, in order to be a matured Christian, you must make a choice to learn God’s Word, allow God to renew your mind, and then be obedient to what you learn. Romans 12:1-2 says, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Pray and ask God to help you grow in the knowledge of Christ.
God is not looking for the famous; He is looking for the faithful.
