Have you ever said to someone.”.Grow up”?
I bet you have and it was because they weren’t acting their age.They said something or did something that was immature.
What about your spiritual life? Do you need to grow up?
The Bible says in Luke, chapter 2, verse 52, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” The Greek word for “increased in” is PROEKOPTERT. It means to ‘advance’ or to ‘keep cutting one’s way forward as through a forest or a jungle.’
Jesus is a perfect example and model of personal growth. He grew in:
Wisdom: Wisdom is skill in living, not just knowing what to do but actually doing it. Wisdom entails living the way God intends for you to live.
Favor with God: You must maintain a healthy relationship with Christ through Bible study, prayer and deep intimacy.
Stature: When you gain favor with God, and you walk in wisdom, your stature will increase in the eyes of others.
Jesus had to grow! We must grow up!
Take the steps you need to grow. Read your Bible, STUDY your Bible, pray and have an intimate relationship with Jesus.
Be active in church, get involved and serve.Start growing and watch what happens.Grow up!
