Top 5 Things Every Christian Should Know To Grow

Why do some Christians not grow as they should? Too often we are content to only know about things. We want the facts, more information and good insights, believing this will give us understanding. We fail to see that even if we have all the information in the world, it’s possible we still may not know anything. Every Christian should be a growing Christian, but what are the secrets to spiritual growth?

Take a look at the following guide for spiritual growth…..

1. You are saved by Faith

Your salvation is based purely upon your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. In other words, salvation is
not something that can be “earned” by how good you try to be or some religious act that you perform. Salvation is a free gift from God, and came as you simply put your faith in Jesus, His death and resurrection, and trusted him to forgive your sins and become your savior and Lord. The scripture says:- “For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

2. You need to go to Church

You should attend church regularly so that your faith can be strengthened by the preaching of God’s Word, and so you can grow spiritually and be encouraged by the fellowship of other Christians. Church is where you can go to express your love, faithfulness, and worship to God. Church is where we can learn how to be a Christian, and where the Pastor and spiritual leaders can help you and encourage your faith. The Bible warns us not to absent ourselves from church attendance, because we need the strength and encouragement

3. You need to read the Bible daily
The Bible is God’s Word, and as you read from it every day, it will cause you to grow spiritually (2 Timothy 2:15). As you study His written word (start with the Gospel of John), He will strengthen your faith, speak to your heart, and give you guidance and direction for every need and decision in your life. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a
light for my path” (Psalms 119:105)

3. You need to Pray every day

Prayer is vital to your spiritual growth. God is your Heavenly Father, and He wants to hear from you and have daily fellowship with you. Not only does He promise to answer your prayers, but as you pray He will also provide guidance and spiritual strength. The Bible tells us to “Pray continually,” that is to pray faithfully every day (1 Thessalonians
5:17).

5. Eternity is for real

God’s Word says that when you place your faith in Christ, you are given eternal life. That is, some- day when your physical body wears out and dies, your soul will go to be in the Lord’s presence to spend eternity with Him! “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
