How can we grow spiritually? When I think about growth, I think about earning some type of recognition when I finish a step towards my goal. I think about my herb garden and how I can use my herbs for creams, teas, and incenses. I also think about my grand kids and how they have grown.
It is the opposite when we grown spiritually. We grow when we depend on God. We are grow stronger through faith. We have to humble ourselves, and remember it is not what we do, but it is how we do it. Spiritual growth means that we will study our bible, pray for guidance, and lean on God.
We will be awarded for our good deeds, but not with money or popularity. We will be awarded with his grace and mercy. We will be able to enter into the kingdom of heaven. Do you let God’s light shine to bring others to him? Do you forgive other who has done you wrong? Do you help others who are less fortunate? These are some of the actions that will you grow spiritually.
Humble yourself, so you can grow spiritually. Here are some verses that will help you mature in your faith:
Colossians 1:9-10: 9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[a]10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.
Philippians 4:13 : I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
2-Timothy-3-16-17: 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a]may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
