When we are born (physically) as a baby, we are expected to grow and develop with the passing of time.  And, if that doesn’t happen, there’s a problem.  When we are born-again (spiritually) we are babes in Christ; expected to grow and develop with the passing of time. And, if that doesn’t happen, there’s a problem.  

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  To Him be glory, both now and forever!  Amen.                                                            2 Peter 3:18

Growth requires nutrition (taking in God's word daily), interaction (spending time with God in prayer), exercise (applying God's word and doing His will), and a healthy environment (being in fellowship where there's good instruction, care, and encouragement). 

Are you growing?

Growth is a process that takes place over time. We're not expected to become mature Christians overnight.  But, we should be working towards it and wanting it.  ..  Do you remember saying as a child, "I can't wait to grow up"?

Are you getting what's required for healthy growth?

Are you excitedly anticipating the growing process?

And, actively pursuing growth?

Reaching UP. Reaching IN. Reaching OUT.

is the process and the evidence of


as Christians, when we first get saved and are born-again, the first type of reaching that we typically do is "upward".  We begin to develop our relationship with God through Jesus with the help of the Holy Spirit by attending a Sunday morning worship service at a local church, reading the Bible, and praying.  Then, as we begin to grow in faith and knowledge (and comfort), we tend to take the next step and begin to reach "inward" by attending a Bible study group and participating in fellowship activities within the church, to build relationships with like-minded believers.  And, as we mature spiritually, we feel more confident and passionate about reaching "outward" to those that we have relationships with (family, friends, neighbors, co-workers) outside of the church, and even those we don't know (strangers), - wanting to share our faith and help them to know the Lord; as well as wanting to touch the lives of others with the love of Christ.  ...  As we grow, we reach for more.  And, as we reach for more, we grow.
