How Can I Grow as a Christian?

 

How Can I Grow as a Christian?
There is no trick, gimmick or special ritual that causes spiritual growth in God’s children.  Let’s read:  “Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy and all evil speaking , as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” 1 Peter 2:1-2.
What is it by which we grow?  The pure milk of the word causes growth, so desire it!  We need to read, meditate, study and make personal application of the word.  Then, we need to do that again, again and again!  It takes time, effort and commitment.  This is God’s plan for your spiritual growth.  If you believe Him you will take this to heart.
In order to properly study God’s word, we need to get rid of some bad attitudes!  They will stunt your growth.  Review the list in the verse quoted above and get hungry for the word.
