May You Grow

may you grow

Coming to Christ on a daily basis in prayer, worship, and meditation on His teachings is essential for a believer’s spiritual growth.

Christ is the the absolute Lover of our souls, and He died on the cross, was buried, and rose again from the dead to provide the only way for anyone to be in fellowship with Him and receive eternal life.

He came to tabernacle with us as a human being, yet He remained fully God; through faith in His life, we receive His life.

Seeking Him is tantamount to His living through us: “I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me” – Galatians 2:20.

Living the crucified life is the Christian life. Christ lives through those who are in fellowship with Him by faith in His Gospel.

Is Christ living through you, dear one. Do you know His great love for you, and His desire to infuse your soul with His life, Himself, so you can live for His glory out of love and obedience to Him?

Love and obedience are two manifestations of Christ living inside the heart of the one who believes in Him.

May you live in faith that you are crucified with Christ and that He lives in you by faith in His Gospel.

God bless you. May you grow, dear saint. My you grow.


God’s Love Builds Up Others

Knowledge puffs up but love edifies.

Knowledge of God’s Word is to make us “wise unto salvation.” As we grow in our maturity in Christ, the Lord Jesus and His Gospel should become even more precious to us. Our love for Christ Jesus and others should become more and more fervent; true spiritual growth is not measured by how much of the Bible we know but by how much of the Bible we wisely practice. A mature, knowledgeable believer will abound in the love of God toward others. Kindness, forbearance, forgiveness, and truth and grace will flourish in his or her character because the Holy Spirit has made Christlikeness their passion. God’s love (as He has defined love – 1 Corinthians 13) will permeate within them filling their hearts, emotions, and thoughts with His love and overflowing through their speech, behavior, and attitudes toward others. “Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies” – 1 Corinthians 1:8. God’s love builds up others:)
