Philippians: Growing in Christ

Spiritual growth doesn’t have to be random or haphazard. Yet, it's amazing how often that seems to be the reality. Paul says some interesting things in regards to our on-going progress toward Christ-likeness.

"15-All of us, then, who are mature
should take such a view of things.
And if on some point you think differently,
that too God will make clear to you.
16-Only let us live up to what
we have already attained."

(Philippians 3:15-16)

As we continue our study in Philippians, we look at how often spiritual formation begins, as we grow in our awareness of what God is already doing in our lives.

One of the prerequistes for growth is frequently simply our ability to discern the inner promptings of God's Spirit.

Once we recognize these promptings, we can better arrange our lives in such a way that spiritual growth will be the natural byproduct.
