Thought of the Day January 14, 2020 Press onward

By 10:17 AM

The Apostle Paul said that spiritual growth is an ongoing process. "Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hood of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But  one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:12-14)

Spiritual maturity is learning how to walk in obedience to God. It is making the choice to live by God's viewpoint rather than our human viewpoint. It is the role of the Holy Spirit to lead us step by step in this journey of spiritual maturity. (Gal 5:16,25)

So the question we ask ourselves: at this stage of our spiritual journey, are we a spiritual adult in process or still a spiritual child? Are we still looking for milk or solid food from God? Do we embrace the cross of the moment or attempt to run away from it? Are our arms always open to receive or to give? This new year is a year of grace for further growth in our relationship with God.
