2 Cor 13:5

1 Pet 2:2

Balanced diet is inevitable for growth. Likewise, our spiritual growth as Christians requires to be nurtured accordingly through persistent life of true worship, prayer and studying of God’s word.

As a child of God, there are areas in your life where you need to self-appraise, in line with the word of God, to ensure that you are still in the faith. Regular attendance at church is not a guarantee that one is rooted in the faith.

Conduct a self-examination:

Prayer life

What is your prayer life like? When God is the only option you have, prayer becomes a necessity. Prayer is conversing with God the Father through the Son Jesus by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Rom 8:26

Prayer is a bedrock to working with God, there is no alternative to prayer. Prayer should be your default response instead of the last option.

Matt 6:5; 26:36-46

Prayer is the only option for a believer.

Luke 18:1-9; Col 4:2; Matt 7:7

Men ought always to pray and not to faint. Persistent prayer yields answer eventually.

Bible Study Life

What do you place premium on? What is important to you? How much are you investing on your spiritual growth.

Josh 1:8

Why do you allow public opinion to be your standard instead of the word? Are you full of the world and word-empty! Do you care to seek counsel in the word of God rather than carnal counsel?

Are you giving attention only to the things around us at the expense of that which has been written in the word of God?

Luke 4:18

What is the watch word of God for you, have you cared to seek this out. Until you have seen yourself in the reality of His word, before you can manifest your God-given destiny. Every believer must be a student of the word. Pattern your life after the word.

Sanctification

1 Thess 4:3-7; Rom 12:1-2

Sanctification is being set apart for God. God loves the sinner but hates sin.

Heb 1:9; Psa 1

Watch your company and relationships. Guard your heart.

2 Cor 3:17-18

Whatever you behold, you become. What are you focused on constantly?

Love

John 3:16

Love will propel you to give your best always. God gave His best. How are you demonstrating the love that you profess? Love is an action word, if you love God you will keep His commandment.

Deut 6:4-5

If truly you love wholeheartedly, there will be no space for hate.

Evangelism

Matt 28:19

Evangelism is mandate that God has given to each believer is to be witnesses of the gospel to the world.

Are you growing in your giving life?
