Most Christ-followers know that their life is to be characterized by progressive spiritual growth. But the question is, do their lives reflect that understanding? Do they display an ever-increasing spiritual maturity that reveals their ongoing transformation into the likeness of Christ? The New Testament is filled with allusions to the growth that should take place in the believer’s life, comparing it to the physical growth of an infant to adulthood. A baby that does not grow is abnormal, an anomaly. The same is true of a Christian who does not display a steady increase in spiritual maturity. And the sad thing is that we are told that we have everything we need to grow spiritually. It is not as if we have been left to survive and thrive on our own. We have all the resources necessary to grow from innocent infancy to full-blown adulthood. But are we taking advantage of them?
