Spiritual Maturity: Is it time for you to grow?

What is spiritual maturity?

Spiritual is our eternal nature. And maturity means being “fully grown,” or “having reached the most advanced stage in a process.”

So we can define spiritual maturity as becoming fully grown in our spirit.

That’s great—but how do we measure “fully grown”?

A great place to look is in today’s verse.

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.

Colossians 1:28 ESV

You Go Before Me

“You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!”

Psalm 139:5-6

It seems like everyone this time of year is talking about their goals for the new year. Often I hear things like: eat healthy, work out, save more money, etc.

What if we were less focused on our outward appearance and possessions and more focused on our relationship with God and how God wants us to love others?

If our goals looked more like: more love, more peace, more patience, more gentleness, more kindness and more self control.

Don’t get me wrong here, take care of that body of yours. Eat healthy, get moving and know where your money is going. But take heart that those things are not the things that define us. Let us be aware of what and who we are putting first in our life and in our hearts.
