2Peter 3:18 says But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

People talking about different ways to grow spiritually. We have seminars, conferences and programs all design to help people grow. Some will tell you, read your bible more, or pray harder and longer. Others will say get involve in church activities. Lets ask a question. Has any of these things really help you to grow. Isn’t it frustrating to do alL those things and still feel like your still stuck in the same place. I know I have had that experience time and time again.

I believe people are sincere when they give you the advice in spiritual growth management. However to be consistent in those things can cause disappointments because life has a way of derailing any progress you may have made. You know as well as I that issues, circumstances and problems can cause us to stop all those things and then we are back to square one.

But what if i tell you spiritual growth is not about doing, but its about who you know. Peter tells us to grow in grace (Jesus). So grow in Christ, which means allow His life to flow through you. And Peter says and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. So learn about Him. So the key to spiritual growth is to allow His life to flow through you and learn all you can about Him and I will grow spiritually. How about that! Now I can get with that!! So spiritual growth is a relationship and not a behavior. WOW!!!
