Evidences Of Spiritual Growth

2 Cor. 13:1-9

Spiritual growth should not be a hidden thing; the evidence of growth should be manifest. A Christian needs to examine himself – carry out self-evaluation either he is growing or stagnant. The question should be “am I growing more and more in manifesting the fruit of the Spirit?” Love, joy, peace, self-control and the rest of the fruit of the Spirit should manifest in greater dimension in my life. One of the evidences of spiritual growth is ability to control one’s speech; the mature Christian will not talk carelessly. Another sign of spiritual growth which should manifest, is heavenly wisdom – wisdom that is pure, peaceable, gentle, willing to yield and full of mercy. The Christian that is growing spiritually will practice more and more the various disciplines that promote maturity – daily devotion, meditation, Bible reading, fellowship, worship, giving etc.

Point of Emphasis:        Evaluate your spiritual growth to know if indeed you are maturing.

Prayer Point:                    Holy Spirit, empower me to keep growing spiritually. I will never stagnate in Jesus’ name.

L’EVIDENCE DE LA MATURITE SPIRITUELLE

2CO. 13 :1-9

La maturité spirituelle ne doit pas être chose cachée; l’évidence de la croissance doit être manifeste. Un chrétien a besoin de s’auto examiner, de mener une autoévaluation pour savoir s’il croît ou s’il est stagnant. La question doit être : « suis-je en train de croître de plus en plus en manifestant le fruit de l’Esprit ?» La charité, la joie, la maîtrise de soi et le reste du fruit de l’Esprit doivent se manifester considérablement dans notre vie. Une des évidences de la croissance spirituelle est la capacité à maîtriser son langage; le chrétien mûr ne parlera pas avec insouciance. Un autre signe de la croissance spirituelle qui doit se manifester est la sagesse divine – une sagesse qui est pure, paisible, douce, prête à céder et pleine de miséricorde. Le chrétien qui croît spirituellement mettra de plus en plus en pratique les diverses disciplines qui sont de nature à promouvoir la maturité – la dévotion quotidienne, la méditation, la lecture biblique, la communion, l’adoration, la générosité, etc.

Point essentiel : Evalue ta croissance spirituelle pour savoir si effectivement tu es en train de mûrir.

Axe de prière : Saint-Esprit, fortifie-moi pour continuer à croître spirituellement. Je ne stagnerai jamais au nom de Jésus.
