“Take the time and the trouble to keep yourselves spiritually fit.” (1 Timothy 4:7b Ph)
What does it mean to be Mature?
As the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more. (2 Corinthians 3:18b NLT)
Growing spiritually is a process, a journey. Spiritual growth is not so much about "doing" as it is about "becoming" - becoming more like Christ. No masterpiece was ever achieved by taking short-cuts. Our life-long journey is a great adventure that requires patience, dedication and determination.
The apostle Paul said, “I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14 NIV)
Growth – spiritual growth – requires a pressing on. Who we become in that process of growth is important, to us and also to God. God desires us to build a close and personal, intimate relationship with his son, Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit works to change us from the inside out.
