Have You Begun Your Spiritual Growth Process?
Real growth begins in Christ. When God fashioned His ultimate intellectual creation, man and woman, they were full grown (Genesis 1:26; 2:21-24). Adam was a complete man and Eve was a complete woman. God created the types of specimens in which He wants all of humanity to aspire. God is seeking growth from His children. It is full maturity in Christ that brings about a perfect relationship with the Father. Personal growth in Christ brings about an internal disposition, which leaps for joy. Is there recognizable growth in Christ? Is there an evident change in the Christian walk? Where does one stand and where has one transcended in Christ?
Through personal growth peace, contentment, and fulfillment is found because the tongue is not as sharp, anger not as quick, imagination not as futile, appetite not as random, personality not as closed, and worship not as lethargic (John 4:24). When personal growth is recognized it is truly a day of jubilation. It is a day of revelation. It is the day one realizes, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
Like Adam and Eve, God wants His elect to be perfect, translated, and mature. As Christ instructed Nicodemus, a person must be born of the water and Spirit if he/she wants to enter into the heavenly realm (John 3:5). Personal growth begins with the divine rebirth which only God can deliver. Have you begun your spiritual growth process? It begins with hearing the Word of God, believing on Christ, repenting/turning away from previous wicked ways, confessing Christ, and being baptized for the remission of sins (Romans 10:17; Hebrews 11:6; Luke 13:3; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 2:38). God wants you to reach maturity in Christ. Remember, you are the clay In The Potter’s Hands. God has paved a way to save you today
