When you or I grow spiritually it is usually because of one or more of the following:

  • a life-changing truth that helps us understand who God is or how to live
  • a spiritual discipline we develop that puts us in tune with God’s Spirit or voice
  • a personal ministry that stretches us to tap into God’s power and purpose
  • a significant relationship that God uses to prompt or encourage us
  • a pivotal circumstance that causes us to depend on God in a new way
