SIGNS OF SPIRITUAL IMMATURITY 1

(ARE YOU GROWING? 8)

 
Just as we have FRUIT of a matured life in Christ, there are SIGNS of spiritual immaturity.
 
Being born again for many years doesn’t make you spiritually matured. You can be attending Church meetings and be serving in a ministry or stewardship department for many years and still not be growing spiritually.
To grow spiritually is a personal decision.
There are certain spiritual habits and mindsets you may cultivate just by being present in an environment of the Word of grace. Because environments or some atmospheres are contagious. 
 
To grow effectively, you don’t have to only depend on the influence of the environment of your local Church. You have to be intentional about your growth in the spirit.
 
In previous episodes we realised that, your demonstration of the LOVE of GOD is the greatest evidence of your growth in the spirit.
The Love of God does not satisfy the desires of the flesh.
The true motive or intention of the love of God at work in you, is to bless or nourish others without personal interest. This brings all glory to God and not you.
The greatest sign of an immatured life is the INFLUENCE OF THE FLESH.
From the opening verse:
 
Brothers and sisters, when I was with you I found it impossible to speak to you as those who are spiritually mature people, for you are still dominated by the mind-set of the flesh. And because you are immature infants in Christ,” 1 Corinthians 3:1 (TPT)
 
 Paul, was speaking to fellow saints (believers in Christ) and not unbelievers. And some of these (if not all) were as babes or infants in Christ. 
 
The evidence of their spiritual immaturity was how they were DOMINATED BY THE MIND-SET OF THE FLESH.
The more you grow in the spirit, the less you are influenced or dominated by the flesh.
Are you growing?
 
To which extent are you dominated by the flesh?
 
Selah.
DIG DEEPER
(1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Romans 13:8-10; Matthew 22:37-40; Ephesians 3:16-18; 1 Corinthians 13; Galatians 5:22-23; 2 Peter 3:18)
 
WE PRAY
That our love will grow and increase beyond measure, bringing us into the rich revelation of spiritual insight in all things.
 
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
Day 219
Psalm 145 – 150
John 9
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I refuse to be dominated by the mindset of the flesh.
 
– My actions and decisions are not influenced by the flesh.
 
– I am a nourishment to others.
 
– I am intentional about my growth in the spirit.
 
– I demonstrate the love of Christ in all things.
 
– As I receive daily nourishment and supply from the Lord, I increase in the expression of love.
 
– I am not dull in hearing the word of God.
 
– I make time daily to fellowship with the scriptures.
 
Oh Hallelujah!!! Gloreeeey!!

One line that really got my attention was:The true motive or intention of the love of God at work in you, is to bless or nourish others without personal interest. This is to bring glory to God, not yourself.
So that will mean that if I am blessing others with personal interest, then I am walking in the flesh.
All glory should be given to others and God, but not myself.
The Lord is my portion

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources, he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit, Ephesians 3:16. Please, which resources are these? Are they the scriptures you have imbibed, the Holy Ghost at work in you? or is there more to it? Apostle, can you kindly expand on it?
