Do you understand spiritual maturity?
Did you know that there is more to being a Christian than just getting saved? Now, for most of us this is really not a revelation. I think for most of us that we understand that we should be growing in our faith that we should be maturing on our journey with Christ. I believe that for the most part that most of us can say that we are probably a better Christian now than perhaps we were even a few years ago. Yet there seems to be a mystery surrounding what it means to be maturing in our faith and what maturity brings with it. Here in the west, spiritual maturity is often associated with knowledge and while knowledge certainly should lead us to grow in our faith, how many of you understand that knowledge alone is not a good measure for maturity? You can literally be filled with knowledge and still be immature in your faith. In other words, you can be the kind of person who knows all the right answers, yet struggles to apply or live by those answers. How many of you have known someone in church who could regal you with their theological insights and could quote scripture and verse, but their lives did not reflect what they knew? Maturity is so much more than what you know about God, in fact I think that we should have a better definition of what maturity is so that we are on the same page. Spiritual maturity is where our knowledge, passion, and practice join together to produce an ever-increasing Christlikeness in our lives.
In this Sermon
We are going to take a look at what spiritual maturity looks like in the Bible and the better things that we can expect to experience as we grow closer to the Lord.
