Before a baby is born, all focus is on the birth date. But after the birthday, the attention shifts to growing up. It is the same in the spiritual. Our spiritual birthday is a wonderful day, but now we need to grow up. What is God’s way for this to take place? Growth (both physical and spiritual) takes time and effort. God has given us very clear instructions on how this is to take place. The majority of the New Testament is focused on this subject. In order to be successful, we must follow God’s way and not create our own way. He is perfect and has designed the perfect way for us to grow up and become full-grown mature sons and daughters, able to bear further responsibility in His kingdom both now and for eternity. Today we look again at God’s plan and ways for our spiritual growth.
