No matter how long you are a Believer that doesn't change. Ever.
But the question is, do you want to grow spiritually? Are you just going through the motions or do you really want to grow?
What happens if we choose to grow? We get closer to Jesus, Father and Spirit. We lose our agendas. We live for Jesus. We take on His plan for life. We become who we were created to be. We become more authentic. All the walls that we've built over the years to protect ourselves are destroyed. We learn to live freely and honestly and joy will bubble out of all this.
1 Timothy 4:14-16 says, "Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you . . . Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that your progress may be evident to all. Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things; for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you."
There's some advertising I see now at the local gas station. It is pictured on the side of the ice container. It says something about taking care of yourself for your loved one. And we should do this. We need to care for ourselves physically so we can keep loving those God puts in our lives. So we can keep serving them and helping them grow and being there for them when they need us. Physical health affects everything in our lives. If we are sick or not healthy it limits what we can do. It limits where we can go. It just plain limits us.
Spiritual health is similar (and emotional often goes along with spiritual health -- when you get healthier spiritually you're going to get healthier emotionally). It's not so we can become Super Christians (do those really exist? I don't think so). It's not so we can become some holy person people look at in awe. It's not about us at all. It's about God and others. The stronger we get spiritually the better we can go through life. The stronger we get spiritually the more God can use us to touch others. The stronger we get spiritually the more others will see Jesus. You don't get stronger spiritually just by going to church and reading your Bible occasionally. You gotta apply the truth you learn. You gotta practice the faith in your thoughts, words and actions. The more you practice the stronger you get (just like an athlete).
We can't grow by osmosis meaning we can't grow spiritually just by letting spiritual truths and sermons and teachings flow into us and expect them to stick. If that happened it would be more a brain-washing than a growing. Instead, they stick when we make them stick through our intentional choices.
So, have you chosen? Have you chosen to grow spiritually or stay stagnate? If you haven't chosen to grow spiritually you've probably chosen the other choice. We choose one or the other. And if you want to grow spiritually are you ready to really grow? Are you ready to let God transform you? Are you ready to become the person you were created to be?
