In the sixth chapter of Hebrews, the author chastises his readers for their lack of spiritual growth. They had been Christians long enough to be teachers. But they had stagnated in immaturity. This admonition is also for believers today.
Only the Holy Spirit can transform us into the image of Christ. But God expects our obedient cooperation. Again and again the Bible encourages us to be purposeful about our spiritual growth. “Train yourself to be godly” (1 Tim 4:7). “Work our your salvation with fear and trembling” (Phil 2:12).
What are you doing to foster your own spiritual growth? What spiritual disciplines do you practice regularly?
