How to Keep on Growing!

Let the wonderful kindness and the understanding that come from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ help you to keep on growing. Praise Jesus now and forever! Amen.
2 Peter 3:18

As a follower of Jesus Christ, how do you keep on growing even when you have been a Christian for many years?

You can continue to grow and in fact you must because there is no limit to how mature you can be as a disciple of Christ. When you spend time with Jesus you will grow and learn more and more even if you have been with Him for years. Knowing Jesus is a well of limitless relationship.

If you are alive, whether you are 21 or 101 you have another opportunity today to grow in Christ. So, specifically what can I do today that will help me to grow as a believer?

Well, growth of a physical body as well as a spiritual person comes from nutrition and exercise. Make sure that you take in plenty of spiritual food today and then you must exercise your faith as you walk through the day! Consume the Word of God as you would your most favorite food as you fellowship with Jesus. Then, let your faith play a role in every decision you make, every step you take and every thought you think.

When you do those things you will continue to grow!

"Lord Jesus, I want to grow to be more like You today. Thank You Lord for making that possible by what You did on the Cross. May You be praised forever. Amen."
