PRAYING FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
BIBLE TEXT: John 3:30-31...30 He must increase, but I must decrease.31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
1. Praying for the spiritual growth should be the ultimate desire of every child of God, because spiritual babies are bound to fall away when the Lord shall come to take brides.
2. There is no height you cannot attain in the spirit if only you are ready to take the bull by the horn.
Hebrews 5:12-14...12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
3. Jesus expect us to be strong and work in the power of resurrection.
4. Jesus wants us to grow to the level where He can teach others, because in many of the epistles the believers are encourage to grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord.
5. As believers we draw our nutrients from the Lord Jesus who is our strength.
2 Peter 3:18...18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
Colossians 2:6-7...6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
