Keep Growing in Christ

To the faithful believer: resist the temptation to remain stagnant in Christ. You must never stop growing, for there is much danger in reaching a point of stagnation that will not allow you to move on in Christ. The church has suggested that we reach a point, a pinnacle, called "there" that is church prescribed, church approved, and actually means we have arrived. Generally it happens immediately prior to an assignment in ministry that is viewed as the reward. If the reward is a position in an ever-growing church, then at the very least, one is required to keep up with the corporate growth. This requires growing and stretching personally, so that you?re not left behind as the corporate flow comes.

Revival has come and we must be mature enough to handle revival in ourselves and in the land. Let us move on to maturity.

"Let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God." Hebrews 6:1b
