From the moment we are born we begin the process of growing up. As Christians, the spiritual process is much the same. My greatest desire is to grow up in my faith.
I've met many Christians who have been believers for umpteen years but have refused to grow up. They are spiritually stunted, being spoon fed each Sunday at church, but never reaching out for more of Him. These believers fall into what I call the "thirty-year-old-five-year-old" group. If I am a ten year old Christian then I want to be a ten-year-old Christian. I don't want to be a baby-believer all my life. I want to be continually GROWING UP!
So friends, what are you learning? How are you actively working hand in hand with Jesus to mature and grow in your faith in Him? Post about it, allow us to be a part of what you are learning and link up below. Let's grow up together!
***One of the things that helps me grow by leaps and bounds are Bible studies. I'm participating in our women's Beth Moore Fall study of "The Patriarchs". And my teenage daughter and I are doing "Believing God" together. I also purchased Warren W. Wiersbe's "Be Encouraged" study on 2Corinthians to work on during my daily quiet time. Being in the Word is a great spiritual fertilizer for me!***
