Why Grow?

July 9, 2017 ()

Bible Text: Proverbs 2:1-11, Colossians 1:9-14, Luke 6:46-49 |


God’s desire for us to grow is rooted in His Fatherly desire that we would thrive as His people. There is a satisfaction, a Godly contentment that comes with bearing fruit in God’s kingdom. There is a joy that comes with knowing who we are and Whose we are. Life is a long journey filled with many struggles and in those struggles are many lessons — many times and ways for growth as individuals and people of God. All of this is a spiritual endeavor, grounded in the work of the Holy Spirit working through the Word and Sacraments. How are you growing as a follower of Jesus? How does God’s Word make an impact on you as you grow? What is God’s plan for our growth, and how does that accomplish His purposes in us and through us?
