(Luke 2:52 NIV) “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Hindrances to Growth:
Thinking we only need to grow in one area.
Friends who aren’t growing.
Kid’s what’s the holiday that comes right after Christmas?
3 Ways to Grow:
1. Share The Word
(Hebrews 4:12 NLT) “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”
(Proverbs 16:24 NLT) “Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”
2. Share Worship
(Jeremiah 32:38-40 NLT) “They will be my people, and I will be their God. And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me.”
3. Share Prayer
(James 5:16-18 MSG) “Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with.
