Growing In The Lord
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
Jesus died to save us from our sins, but salvation does not stop there. Just as we come into this world as helpless babies and grow into self-sustaining adults, we are to grow spiritually.
We should not get saved and 10 years later still be spiritual babies. We cheat ourselves and God when we refuse to grow spiritually. It is true that growing spiritually is often painful, but the end results are well worth it.
Let us pray daily that we will grow each day into what God wants us to be. Today more than ever let us share the Gospel with the way we live our lives and in our testimony. We can see prophecy falling into place. The age of grace is coming to an end. God help us to be fruitful Christians.
