SPIRITUAL GROWTH

SPIRITUAL GROWTH
Spiritual growth is a God-given, biblical principle.
If a child doesn’t grow properly, you take it to the doctor. If a plant doesn’t grow, you examine it, water it and control vermin.

It is remarkable that so many people live in spiritual poverty. They own a Bible, use to sing for hours, attend plenty of services, but they lack practical education. Why don’t we see the fruits that Jesus speaks of in Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15-18 and 2 Tim. 2:2, just to mention some of the most famous Bible verses?
Not many people evangelize and evangelization happens only on a small scale, on the Internet as well as in real life. Of course, thousands of excuses can be found for not going out and telling the world about Jesus. The biggest excuse that I have heard in the past 35 years is fear, stemming from a lack of knowledge of questions like: "Who am I in Christ", “What have we received with Jesus" and "What armour do I wear and how does it enable me to go out in Jesus’ name?” Church leaders bear great responsibility with regard to this, even today. It is also their responsibility to seriously warn against
deviant teachings that distract us from God’s actual order as they were particularly spread in the nineties, leading to many schisms.
Often, we know how to sing the newest songs, but Jesus said, “TEACH them to obey EVERYTHING I have commanded you.” That is what we need in order to have ready knowledge of the Word of God and to be able to easily share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with people who don’t know Him as their personal Saviour and Redeemer yet. Jesus is the True Vine and we, believers, are the branches that should bear fruit. That means that we have to apply what Jesus taught us and bear fruit, so that His Name will be made known and glorified throughout our lives.
Jesus prayed in John 17:18-20, “As you (Father) sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified. My prayer is not for them alone. I PRAY ALSO FOR THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE IN ME THROUGH THEIR MESSAGE,…”
Jesus also said, "Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest field." Labourers aren’t commissions; Jesus’ co-workers are disciples, his devout followers who are set ablaze by God’s Holy Spirit in order to tell others about Jesus and the Father. They are people who hear God’s call and simply obey His Word.
Jesus said, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” John 20:21 God bless ! Ev. Hans Hofman
