Growing Spiritually

‘Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But Solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil”
Hebrews 5:13-14
 
 

According to Jesus, everyone who repent and receive him as Lord and Saviour are “born Again”  (John 3:3) – now this is not a natural birth as Nicodemus thought, this is a spiritual re-birth. all things are made new ! Now once we have this spiritual re-birth, we must now grow spiritually we can’t continue to feed on milk, we must feed on strong and solid food.

Is there an ABC for spiritual growth ? not necessarily but there are some FOUNDATIONS which we should all understand and put in practice.
 
  • We need constant , heartfelt relationship with GOD. we must be in constant communication, he must be the reason for our being, whatever we do , he must be the reason of it ! the best way to do this is to be praying regularly (praying is the simple act of taking time to talk with GOD ). 
  • We MUST be reading his words daily, the BIBLE is GOD’s written revelation to us, this is our handbook for a Christian life ! it forms the foundation of our christian Living. While our prayer is the communication we have toward GOD; the BIBLE is the communication GOD has toward us !!! Everything we need to know is in there !
  • It is also crucial for us to be participants in a healthy and well-balanced church. this is where we grow with our bothers and sisters. The Church is referred to as the bride of Christ or the BOdy of Christ. we all form part of the body. though there is ONE CHURCH for Christ, which we all form part of, it is vital that we have a local church to grow with. Christian should also be active members or christian communities that do the work and share the love and word of GOD around !
