Four ways I GROW Spiritually
1. I grow when I feed on God’s word.
Jesus: “People need more than bread for their life; they must feed on every Word of God.” Matthew 4:4 (NLT)
Paul: “. . . the Word of grace is able to build you up and give you all the blessings that God has for his people." Acts 20:32 NIV
Action Step: A DAILY TIME WITH GOD FOR 40 DAYS
2. I grow when I develop spiritual habits.
Now that you know these things, you’ll be blessed if you practice them! John 13:17 NIV
Solid food is for mature people, whose minds have been trained by practice to know the difference between good and evil. Hebrews 5:14 (GW)
All good athletes train hard and practice to get better. They do it to win a prize that won’t last. But we practice to win a prize that will last forever! 1 Corinthians 9:25
Guaranteed Growth Habits:
- Habit of weekly large group worship.
- Habit of life group fellowship.
- Habit of a daily time alone with God. (Bible & Prayer)
- Habit of memorizing God’s Word
3. I grow when I help others grow.
I want us to help each other with the faith we have. Your faith will help me, and my faith will help you. Romans 1:12 (GNT)
Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. Let us not give up the HABIT of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another all the more. Hebrews 10:24-25 (TEV)
Action Step: JOIN A LIFE GROUP TODAY
4. I grow when I commit to grow.
God: “You’ll find me when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else.” Jeremiah 29:13 (Message)
Our greatest wish and prayer is that you will become mature Christians. 2 Corinthians 13:9b (TLB)
