Physical and Spiritual Growth

We start off with the need to grow. We physically are born, learn to crawl, toddler, walk, stride, run, sprint… Where and how are you Spiritually? Yes, many feel that following the precepts governed by rules set by ‘Man’ is all that is needed.
For one to grow properly certain rules must be observed for good spiritual health.
We are led to learn what is needed in physical development. As pointed out, you are YOU inside you. Yes, there is a body…think of this, after an accident, if paralyzed, you are still you. Yes, all you did before is not immediately possible. Some revert to depression, drugs, wiling away the time wasting away. Granted, there is frustration at the inability to do what was once done. A new way MUST be found, what makes this possible?

Now we arrive at the crux of this share. You were one way once, a child spiritually, how do I grow is the question. Being “born again”, this may sound like some ‘ultea religios’ hoopla, it is a state of mind. ” Old things have passed away.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

We start of learning to roll over
For one to grow properly certain rules must be observed for good spiritual health.
1. Read your Bible daily. Do not be content to skim through a chapter merely to satisfy your conscience. Hide the Word of God in your heart. It comforts, guides, corrects, encourages – all we need is there.
2. Learn the secret of prayer. Prayer is communicating. Every prayer that you pray will be answered. Sometimes that answer may be “Yes” and sometimes “No,” and sometimes it is “Wait,” but nevertheless it will be answered.
3. Rely constantly on the Holy Spirit. We know that the Holy Spirit prays for us (Romans 8), and what a comfort that should be to the weakest of us. Stand aside and let Him take over all the choices and decisions of your life.
4. Attend church regularly. The visible church is Christ’s organization upon earth. Christians need one another, we need to gather together to worship God and nothing can take the place of church attendance.
5. Be a witnessing Christian. We witness in two ways: by life and by word – and the two, where possible, should go hand in hand.
6. Let love be the ruling principle of your life. Jesus said to those who followed Him, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35). The greatest demonstration of the fact that we are Christians is that we love one another.
7. Be an obedient Christian. Let Christ have first place in all the choices of your life.
8. Learn how to meet temptation. Temptation is not sin. It is yielding that is sin. Let Christ, through the Holy Spirit, do the fighting for you.
9. Be a wholesome Christian. Our lives and appearance should commend the Gospel and make it attractive to others.
10. Live above your circumstances. Don’t let your circumstances get you down. Learn to live graciously within them, realizing the Lord Himself is with you.
