Jim Piper delivers a personal message today about the how and why of spiritual growth and maturity.  What is there to gain?  Your life will change for the better!  In contemporary terms, you’ll become more self-aware, more compassionate and empathetic, more purposeful in serving others, more grateful, and more content just to name a few things.  The Bible describes it like this, Galatians chapter 5 verses 22-23:

“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”

Who doesn’t want those things in their life?

Understanding Spiritual Growth and Maturity

Now, how do you begin this journey of growth and maturity?  Jim offers a few simple ways to begin.

  1. Acknowledge that God is with you and spend time with Him.  He is omnipresent so God is everywhere you are.  You can talk to him and feel his presence anywhere.
  2. Read the Bible.  The Bible is God’s word.  If you are new to the Bible it doesn’t matter.  Read the book of Genesis, read Proverbs, and read the Gospel of John in the New Testament.
  3. Spend time with people that will support and help you grow.  Maybe that is a traditional church, maybe not but make an intentional effort to be around people who also want to learn and believe in God.
  4. Spiritual growth is not a straight line.  There will be ups and downs, twists and turns, good days and bad days.  There are no shortcuts.  In order to grow and mature it takes time and intentional commitment.  It is something we can all achieve if we choose.

If you don’t own a physical Bible, the Bible Jim referenced is available on Amazon.
