Christian growth,Spiritual maturity and discipleship.

Posted on: October 4th, 2013 by ktaylor

Once we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, confessed our sins and received forgiveness,what’s next? Just like a new born babe we to are new born, a new born Christian also with new born needs. Although different from the nutritional needs of a new born baby the needs of a new born Christian are just as essential. To gain these needs there are steps we must take,some of which I will list below. We must be fed to grow,we must learn to educate and we must communicate to relate. Growth,spiritual maturity and discipleship can only be achieved through the filling of the Holy Spirit with total surrender to the will of God. We must be fed Spiritually, with God’s word. Reading and studying of His word provides the knowledge we need to grow and mature, also to understand what being part of God’s family is all about,just as we have obligations to our earthly family,there are obligations to being part of God’s family. Growth and maturity brings discipleship,you want to tell others about the wonderful news of Christ and how “His” shed Blood at Calvary atones for all the sins of mankind,your changing actions show the love,grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. Lets get started;

*Step 1; Study God’s word, I personally think all “born again” (All) Christians should read the Gospel of John, it emphasizes the love of God found in Jesus Christ. 

*Step 2;Pray, it’s a must to set aside time to pray, alone time that we as a child of God can tell Christ what’s on our hearts and minds (not that He don’t already know) Christ wants to hear from us.

*Step 3:Obey God, We must listen to obey. Study and Keep “His” Ten Commandments”

*Step 4: Christian application to everyday life, this applies to all walks of life;set the example. Remaining  Diligent!

*Step5:Fellowship; 1 John 1:7 (NIV)

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[a] sin.
