Help Yourself into Spiritual Growth – 2 Peter 3:18

Spiritual Growth

Spiriatual Growth

Spiritual growth is applicable to believers. Growth entails knowing the Lord Jesus Christ progressively better. This process starts after accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your saviour. Growth is a characteristic of life; all living things grow.

Spiritual growth is therefore expected from every believer because no believer reaches a point of no growth while living in this world. There are many things that a believer can do to enhance his or her spiritual growth, out of which six will be highlighted.

  1. Get assured of being a new creation through accepting the Lord Jesus Christ – to identify with spiritual growth you must first be born again because it is not possible for a non-believer to grow spiritually. The moment you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour, you become a new creating and gain entry into spiritual person (2 Corinthians 5:17).
  2. Abandon / shun all sin – Romans 6:1 -2, exhorts people to abandon all types of sin. It is not possible to grow spiritually if you still engage in some ungodly practices. For example, if you have been a drunkard, fornicator, thief or liar, you have to stop.
  3. Communicate with Jesus Christ through prayer – Ephesians 4:6 – 8 and 1 Thessalonians 5:17 emphasize the need to pray. It is encouraged for brethren to have prayer partners yet having a prayer partner should not be a reason for not praying alone. A believer should have a special prayer time. Prayer serves as a shield for the believer.
  4. Read the Holy Bible at all times – the more you read your Holy Bible, the more you change. The Holy Bible is a mirror on which your life should reflect. Let the Holy Bible talk to you.
  5. Tell others about Jesus Christ – Spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ helps you grow.
  6. Belong to a certain denomination – this makes you have a spiritual home and the pastor your spiritual leader.

The six highlighted points are good practices that lead to enjoying life as a Christian. Abandon these at your peril and you may be a victim to the enemy.
