“Growing”

“Growing”
Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr.

We need food to grow physically, and we also need food to grow spiritually. Fruits and veggies can fill your stomach, but it’s the Word of God (Bible) that fills your spiritual appetite. Yesterday’s food is not always good enough for today and that’s the same thing with the Word. No matter how many times you read this or that scripture, keep studying the Bible. We must be spiritually fed on a constant basis in order to grow. In the Body of Christ we never stop growing. Stay hungry! Here are a few points to keep in mind:

* Don’t ignore the little things that are not pleasing to God- just like the saying, “It’s the little foxes that spoil the vine.” Have you noticed that when you don’t correct something it gets worse? It’s hard to break a bad habit.

* When you’re growing spiritually, be careful who you hang around. Don’t let someone else shut down your anointing.

Psalm 1:1 (NIV)
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

* Praying is not an option. The more you grow, the more you’ll realize prayer is a necessity!

Psalm 1:2 (NIV)
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Something to think about: In order to grow as Christians, we must spend time with Christ. But, the enemy loves to manipulate your time (keeping you too busy for the Lord…) Satan knows your weaknesses, so he will try to keep you from realizing your maximum potential. Don’t let the devil steal your time! Set aside time for God because he is the key to your spiritual growth.
