UNDERSTANDING SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Instead, by speaking the truth in a spirit of love, we must grow up in every way to Christ, who is the head.” 

Ephesians 4:15 (GNT)

 
Imagine seeing a 20-year-old lady crying for the mother’s breast milk like a 3-month-old baby.
 
Clearly, you will know there is a big problem.
Each kind of life has its own designed growth system.
Every organism is expected to grow.
 
Every plant or crop has an expected season to grow. A yam farmer expects to harvest his crop between 4 to 6 months. It becomes a challenge when it is not ready for harvest within a year or more.
 
If you have been born again for a while, you may have heard the term “Spiritual Growth“.
 
People have some strange understanding of Spiritual growth. They perceive spiritual growth as the completeness of your spirit.
There is no incomplete spirit in Christ.
For you have been made complete in Him (Colossians 2:10).
 
Some assume Spiritual growth means you receive more righteousness, salvation, the life of Christ, holiness, power, and qualification to be a son of God and a citizen of heaven.
 
Others conclude that you are not a king and a priest until you grow spiritually.
 
When you come into Christ you are made righteous (2 Corinthians 5:21). You don’t grow your righteousness neither can it be improved.
 
You can receive more grace, but you cannot receive more righteousness. You receive righteousness as a gift (Romans 5:17). 
 
It is the same with your salvation. You are made Holy in Christ, no saint in Christ is more holy than the other. We all have the holiness of Christ. You only have the responsibility to express that Holiness. 
 
By the obedience of Christ we have been made royal priests (1 Peter 2:9). Now are we the sons of God (1 John 3:2). And as sons, we have equal citizenship in God’s Kingdom and equal access to the Father.
Beloved, your spiritual growth is about your growth in the understanding and consciousness of Christ and who you are in Him. 
“Spiritual growth” is not the growth OF your spirit, it is your growth IN THE SPIRIT.
 
It is your growth into Christ in all things, by which you become the complete expression of Him in this world. It includes the renewal of your mind (Romans 12:2).
To grow in the Spirit is to mature and develop mastery in the expressions of love.
This is when your heart is enriched with the knowledge of Christ and is deeply rooted in His love.
 
ARE YOU GROWING IN THE SPIRIT?
 
Selah.
DIG DEEPER
(2 Peter 3:18; 2 Peter 1:8; Hebrews 5:12-13; 1 Peter 2:2; Proverbs 4:18; Galatians 4:1)
 
WE PRAY
That we will grow in the consciousness of Christ and who he has made us.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
Day 211:
Psalm 119:51- 90
Luke 20-21
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– As I feast on the word daily, I grow deeper in the consciousness of Christ and my identity in Him.
– I don’t take my spirituality for granted.
– As I feast daily on the word,  I mature and develop mastery in the expressions of love.
– I demonstrate Christ in all that I do.
– I am complete in Christ.
– I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
 
Oh Hallelujah!! Gloreeeey!!!!
