How Do You Grow Spiritually?

When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways.

1 Corinthians 13:11 (ISV)

Spiritual growth, development, and maturity is actually mind renewal. It has nothing to do with how long you’ve been in church or a Christian.

When you feed and meditate on the word, your mind is being renewed.

And this mind renewal results in behavioral change and character modification.

This isn’t what you try to make happen; you don’t try to modify your character or grow; you just eat.

You focus on the substance that makes it happen: milk and meat, which is the word.

The more you grow, the more you know you have to meditate on God’s word.

It’s not about having your way or trusting in your faith, but trusting in Him.

You get to a point where, if you don’t get any witness from the master, you don’t have any desire to make a move.

You learn to depend on the spirit.

The more you know Him, the more humble you become.

It’s no longer about you; His will becomes your will.

Until you get to that point, you will continue to wonder about life.
