Until a child grows, he does not differ from a servant. He is under tutor and governors. When he grows he takes his full position and begins to reign. Until a Christian grows, he cannot enjoy fully his rights and inheritance in Christ. Galatians 4:1-2
God designed us to grow:
God wants us to grow into Christ in all things. The Bible says we should desire the word of God that we may grow thereby. Ephesians 4:15-16, 1 Peter 2:3
Increase the result we produce:
Hebrews 5:14 ‘’seeing then that we have a great high priest, that passed into the heavens, Jesus the son of God lets us hold fast our profession.’’
Study the word:
2 Timothy 2:15. It is very necessary that we study the word of God. The Bible says that we should study to show ourselves approved, a workman that needs not be ashamed.
Reason for study:
1 Peter 2:2; Eph 4:14. We study so that we would grow. God’s word is the food for the spirit; we have to take it in order to grow.
