How can we grow Spiritually?
Spiritual growth is a byproduct of pursuing intimacy with God. He is the one who gives us the growth, but just like any relationship, it takes time and attention for it to flourish.
We know God is always working to make us like Jesus (Romans 8:28-29), but that doesn’t mean we wait on Him to do all the work! God tells us to be intentional about nurturing our relationships with Him.
There are lots of things you can do to help your spiritual growth. Here are the three most vital:
- Seek God regularly. This includes things like prayer, personal bible study, scripture memorisation and meditation.
- Learn from others. We’re designed to grow spiritually through relationships with other Christians, so pick up that phone.
- Take steps of faith. Spiritual growth goes into overdrive when you’re trusting God with things out of your comfort zone and/or control. Praise the Lord, the transition from uni will give you plenty of practice! 😉
