Everything you do is directly related to your growth in Christ. Your thoughts, actions, goals, behaviors –
The great news is that the Lord says that you are predestined to be conformed to the image of Christ. This means that God is invested in your spiritual growth and is using all of what I listed and more to ensure that He grows you to look like His Son. And, you are invited by Him to grow in this process.
Children grow physically by doing nothing. It just happens to them. They do have to participate in some in growing up though. Emotional, mental, and spiritual maturity doesn’t just happen. We have to be intentional to make this growth happen. Parents train us in social skills and controlling our emotions; schools teach us mental discipline and continue to present ever more difficult subjects so that we can grow. Sometimes our spiritual growth is not as intentional.
Here we mean to change that. Scripture tells us to grow up in the Lord, to mature, to disciple ourselves, to grow in knowledge and wisdom, and to learn what pleases the Lord. And, what we do here on this page is just a very small part of our becoming spiritually mature. But, start here and then keep growing, keep learning and we shall all become mature in Christ Jesus and able to teach and lead others to Him.
