TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH

TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH

True spiritual growth is not seeking to improve on the divine and holy nature of God we received at the new birth, or to improve on the quality of God’s kind of righteousness imputed to us at the new birth through faith in Christ.

True spiritual growth is not seeking to receive more blessing, grace, anointing, authority, or divine abilities from the Holy Spirit. Neither is it striving to do more good or righteous works in order to please God or be acceptable to God. If this is your concept or idea of spiritual growth you will always be frustrated…

WHAT SPIRITUAL GROWTH IS NOT

WHAT SPIRITUAL GROWTH IS NOT

The general but wrong concept of spiritual growth in the Church today is that the believers are born again into God’s kingdom as spiritual babes or infants, who then grow up into maturity as they feed regularly on God’s Word, fellowship daily with God in prayer, and participate in diverse spiritual activities in the church.

This concept of spiritual growth presupposes that at the point of spiritual generation the born-again believers, the new creations, are not perfectly like Christ in their born-again spirit, or at best just “a miniature Christ…”

THE BLUEPRINT FOR GOD’S BUILDING

THE BLUEPRINT FOR GOD’S BUILDING

God always employs and engages men as co-builders with Him whenever He wants anything built on the earth. However, God always gives to His co-builders a detailed specification, pattern, or blueprint for whatever He has called them to build for Him.

When God wanted an ark to be built on earth for the salvation of those who would believe and heed His warning before sending a great flood to destroy the earth and its inhabitants, He employed Noah and delivered to him a detailed blueprint or plan for building the ark…

YOU ARE GOD’S BUILDING

YOU ARE GOD’S BUILDING

God’s building on the earth is the Church (the Ekklessia). This building is not an impressive or imposing physical edifice; it is an assembly of a people called out from sin, self and the world to God. The Lord Jesus is the Chief builder of the Ekklessia!

Jesus aptly said, “I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” (Matt. 16:18 NKJV). Although it is the Lord Jesus who is building His Church, yet He calls some men into partnership with Him as co-builders, for the Lord Jesus takes delight in working in, with and through mortal men…

BE A WISE BUILDER

BE A WISE BUILDER

We all are builders whether we realize it or not. We are constantly building somebody or something. Our buildings could be our own lives, children, families, homes, careers, businesses, or ministries. Although God gives us somebody or something to build, yet He is the builder of all things.

The Scripture states, “For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” (Heb. 3:4 RSV). Therefore, whenever God calls us to build for Him; He is simply calling us into building partnership with Him. As co-builders with God, we are not expected to build anything independently of God…

THOUGH I WAS BLIND, NOW I SEE (Part 2)

THOUGH I WAS BLIND, NOW I SEE (Part 2)

Although the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men in the person of Jesus Christ; however, grace alone cannot save anyone; you must put your faith in the provision of grace for you to be saved.

Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ Jesus and His finished work at the cross! Anyone who rejects Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour has rejected God’s only provision for his salvation. Such a person will die in his sins and spiritual ignorance!
