SIGNS OF SPIRITUAL MATURITY
DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD
Spiritual maturity manifests itself as “Life in Christ.” A continuing love affair with the person and presence of Jesus is the first step.
DIG DEEP INTO GODS WORD
Finding the will of God within the word of God – is an absolute necessity for spiritual growth.
No word – no wisdom from above.
No word – no faith that comes by hearing.
No word – no obedience to the commands of Christ.
DESIRE GODS FAVOUR & BLESSING
The life of faith always desires the favour and blessing of God.
To accept your present lot in life – is to yield to your circumstances. Spiritual people never stop believing for spiritual breakthroughs.
DIE TO SELF AND SIN
As we mature in Christ we realise that we must die to our own desires and live to the will of God.
When you die to yourself – many things in your life that appear dead – can come alive again.
DEMONSTRATE THE LOVE OF GOD
The agape love of God is best described by the verse that says; “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Love lays down its own rights for the good of others.
Love that dies to self – so that others may live – is the gospel of Jesus.
By this kind of love the world will know we are Christ’s disciples.
