WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7
MAIN TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 11:1. “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ”.
1 Timothy 4:16 – Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
Do you know that after many years of Apostle Paul’s Ministry he exclaimed, “That I may know Him, and the Power of His Resurrection? The day you stop to grow that day you start to die. Growth is an art of persistent development, improvements, changes and gaining experiences over time. It means to broaden ones level of awareness spiritually, physically, academically, financially etc.
Turn to 2 PETER 1:3-8, the passage above shows that spiritual growth includes increasing in the knowledge and understanding of Gods’ Word, Decreasing in your frequency and severity of sin, increasing in your practice of Christ-Like qualities and increasing in your faith and trust in God.
The summary of spiritual growth is becoming more like Christ. This is the realm Apostle longed to dwell, a realm where the full expression of Divine Nature is made manifest in a human content. Grow!
1) Spiritual Growth can only take place in a person who knows the LORD JESUS CHRIST as his or her savior.
2) Learning to grow is a life long journey which occurs as you read and apply Gods’ Word to your Life. 2 TIM. 3:16-17
3) Another key to a Christian growth is total submission to and walking in the spirit. GAL. 5:16-18, 24-26. Walking in the Spirit is Allowing Him to fill you, EPH 5:18, control you and guide you. ROM 6:11-14.
4) When you are growing, you decrease more and more in the manifestations of the Adamic nature and you increase more and more in God Kind of Life Zoe.
5) Nobody grows by chance; growth comes with a conscious training of self, a forceful discipline of the body and deliberate investments in mind building materials, prayers and study of the Word of God.
“GROWTH CAN BE RAPID, IT CAN BE SLOWLY, BUT THE WORST STATE IS NOT GROWING”
PRAYER – Lord Jesus Christ, equip and strengthen me daily into your ways and nature. May I never grow out of the way of truth and light of Christ.
