“Path to Spiritual Growth and Maturity”

We are inundated with bad news all week long. It’s hard to find joy and peace in the crazy of life. But for one hour a week, we get to hear good news! This week, Wayne Kraiss shared good news that we can lean on all week long, day after day.

The pathway to spiritual growth and maturity is the same pathway to joy.

  1. Accept forgiveness and embrace it. Accept the status of being a forgiven person as a lifestyle. (And by the way, sometimes the hardest part of this is forgiving yourself.)
  2. Accept Christ’s cleansing of our sins. (1 John 1:9)(Psalm 103:1-2)
  3. Finally, accept Christ as Lord. AND as your Redeemer and King.

HOMEWORK

Keep up the homework from last weekend – entrust your life to Jesus. Look at John 3:16 with a fresh lens. May you embrace King Jesus as both Savior AND Lord. Trust him with your failures, your forgiveness, and your life.
