I Love My Church—Be Growing
Chris McCurley   -  

Spiritual growth is a choice. Jesus said that it requires labor (Jn. 6:27). Paul wrote that it requires work (cf. Phil. 2:12; 3:13-14). Peter stated that it requires diligence (2 Pet. 1:5, 10). Spiritual maturity is an on-going, persistent, continuous process. It is a concerted effort. It is also a command.
