All living things grow. As followers of Christ, believers are called to grow and mature in our spiritual lives. Spiritual maturity is the process of recognizing our complete dependence on God and learning to rely on Him rather than ourselves. As we grow and mature in our relationship with Him, we realize how much we need Him.
Following Jesus isn’t just a one-time decision. It’s a daily process of growth. That growth is a biblical imperative. The expectation of Scripture isn’t that we grow old together, but that we grow up in Christ together.
Spiritual growth comes from learning more about God and Jesus from studying and meditating on the Bible, talking with God in prayer, and sharing your faith with others.
