A disciple, a follower of Christ, desires and continually works on becoming more like Jesus. This doesn’t just happen. The character of Jesus doesn’t suddenly appear in us but grows out of a commitment to know and live God’s word, the Bible. Spiritual growth happens when we learn the scriptures and integrate them into our thinking, decision making, value system, action and behaviors so much that they reflect Jesus.
Three “growing” questions.
- Am I committed to learning and understanding God’s word through personal and group Bible study?
- Am I putting into practice what God shows me in His word?
- Am I acquiring Christian habits and behaviors?
