The Need for Christian Growth
Prepared by Ptr. Doods Agravante
God desires that every Christian grow continually until God stops him and finally takes him to heaven. God has abundant provisions for our growth. Our fruits will testify that we have God’s life in us and are growing.
Reasons for not growing (I Cor. 3:1-3)
The provisions from God (2 Pet. 1:3-4)
The perfection of character (2 Pet. 1:5-7)
The promise of fruitfulness (2 Pet. 1:8-11)
Growth is not an end of itself. God wants us to be productive and useful in His work. It is amazing how growth and usefulness work together. That is the more we grow, the more we are used of God.
