What is spiritual growth

What is spiritual growth

 

Spiritual growths comes by God’s Grace and our Faith and Obedience to God through the Knowledge of the Word Christ Jesus.

 

Thus, learning to Walk in the spirit;

all that is produced and maintained among men by the operations of the Spirit of God is “spiritual,” l Cor 15:46 …. The spiritual man is one who walks by the Spirit both in the sense of Gal 5:16 and in that of 5:25, and who himself manifests the fruit of the Spirit in His own ways. According to the Scriptures; the “spiritual” state of soul is normal for the believer. but to this state all believers do not attain, nor when, it is attained is it always maintained. Thus the; apostle, in 1 Cor 3:1-3, suggests a contrast be­tween this spiritual state and that of the babe ‘ in Christ, i.e., of the man who because of immaturity and inexperience has not yet reached spirituality, and that of the man who by permitting jealousy, and the strife to which jealousy always leads, has lost it. The spiritual state is reached by diligence in the Word of God and in prayer; it is maintained by obedience and self-Judgment. Such as are led by the Spirit are spiritual, but, of course, spirituality is not a fixed or absolute condition, it admits of growth; indeed, growth in ‘the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” 2 Pet 3:18, is evidence of, true spirituality.

 

Galatians 3:23-26 (KJV)

But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

 

But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

 

2 Peter 1:3-8 (KJV)

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
