GROWING UP SPIRITUALLY

GROWING UP SPIRITUALLY

Therefore,my beloved,as you have always obeyed,not as in my presence, but now much more in my absence,  work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in us both to will and to do for his good pleasure

Philippians 2:12-13

Isn’t it just amazing that God works in us to will and do of His Good pleasure? Growing up spiritually is not a herculean task as we may have been made to believe, this doesn’t mean it is just “easy”.

Philippians 2:12 tells us that we need to work out our salvation, just like going to the gym, the muscles we are trying to build didn’t just come into our body when we entered the gym, it has always been there, by working it out we see the muscles develop and become stronger and stronger. 

That’s how we must see our spiritual growth as developing our spiritual muscles, just like Hebrews 5:13 tells us that “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by REASON OF USE HAVE THEIR SENSES EXERCISED TO DISCERN GOOD AND EVIL”

 So we see by exercising our spiritual senses we can easily discern the will of God for our lives.

God wants us to grow up spiritually, and you can grow up spiritually. 

Consciously or unconsciously, when we understand who we really are in Christ Jesus, some things will automatically change in our attitudes and approaches.

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING
