Spiritual Growth 2018-
Ever wonder what it would take, or more importantly, what you could do to achieve anything like Spiritual Growth in your life? No, well, consider this anyhow. Yes, then also, read on!
Maybe you are wondering what action you could do, to enhance any one thing, to achieve more of a closer relationship with God.
There are things like doing meditation with prayer, that could or could not help. Finding a church that suits you is another thought, but it may not work for you either. Seeking someone to council you is another, but then again, it just may not work.
What would work? There are varied things to consider, but I might make this suggestion, which is a simple (not much of a cost either) thing to consider. It COULD, no WILL, involve something from you, namely — YOUR TIME! And, not that much of it, I might add, and even that will be up to you to control. You can put as much time into this as you desire.
So, what is it! Taking a Bible (any version) and reflecting on the meaning of Scriptures therein, and therefore, it will be like using the Word of God as a mirror to reflect back the truth of Scripture on our actions, decisions and events of our daily lives. Hmmm, interesting to state…..
Just like exercise is somewhat of a pain and takes up our valuable time, the reading of Scripture requires us to contemplate, and meditate on the Words written. There ARE guides to help us untangle the mysteries and power of God’s inspired Words, such as study guides, Bible primers, devotional books and others, that will enable us to understand the uncertain aspects that are written.
Reflection on Scripture might, just might, raise awareness of the Spiritual benefits and motivate us to adjust our daily routines to continue to do this reflection. In the process, Spiritual Growth can be the ultimate benefit.
I feel there is NOTHING matters more to us, than time spent on God’s Word for achieving Spiritual Growth. The going to church, service activities, small group meetings, etc, ARE important overall, but, reading Scripture beats all.
We can say we are not religious, but instead, Spiritual! As a statement that sounds neat or good. It also sounds terrific maybe, but just saying it does not mean anything. Actions speak louder than words.
A simple action, that has minimal cost other than our time, is the main way of expressing our commitment to God. Starting to read just a verse daily from the Bible and contemplating its meaning, is a large, very large, beginning to Spiritual Growth.
I invite you to begin anew with your thoughts about God and His son, Jesus Christ. Allow them into your life, absorb what is said and become one that God looks at with favor.
Take the time and quit using time involvement as an excuse not to increase your Spiritual Growth with God.
