Spiritual Growth is a life-long journey which occurs as we read and apply God's Word to our life.
Spiritual growth includes:
- increasing in our knowledge and understanding of God's Word,
- increasing in our practice of Christ-like qualities,
- increasing in our faith and trust in God.
Perhaps the best summary of spiritual growth is becoming more like Jesus Christ. In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul says, "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." Jesus Christ is the ultimate example of what it truly means to be spiritual.
The path of spiritual growth is a path of life-long learning. God works in different people in different ways. Some people grow rapidly, while others grow slowly, but steadily. At St. Gabriel’s we are committed to our Christian spiritual growth and in helping each of us build the characteristics of the godly person inside of us.
