Growing Up Spiritually.

Key Verse

“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God’’ (Hebrews 6:1).

Text — Hebrews 6:1-6


Elementary knowledge acquired in childhood forms the basis for further studies in life. There are also elementary Christian qualities and virtues which must be improved upon for the sustenance of Christian living. Some young Christians trade away such foundational experiences. Others do not grow beyond these initial ones but remain spiritually stagnant.

Growth implies an addition over a period of time. When you have an encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ, you receive free salvation from sin. You must learn more about the faith: holiness, prayer, evangelism, victory over temptations and persecution, Holy Ghost baptism, spiritual gifts, and love for God and neighbors. Our text today challenges believers on the necessity of growth.

Those who fall away from the faith are common among those who stop growing. They are fond of sharing stale testimonies of past years without any current addition. Build upon the foundation you have received (2 Peter 1:5-9). You must grow in grace and in the knowledge of the word of God. Be regular at Church fellowships. Study the word, appropriate the promises of God, and walk in them.


Be regular at Church fellowships


You are called to a steadfast growth in Christ.

Prayer for today

Lord, keep me growing daily in the faith.
