MFM Daily Devotional 2nd July 2021 Outline
Spiritual maturity is a journey that proceeds from your healthy spiritual growth as a Christian. It involves an individual is decisions and choices. There is a moment of being born again, like every child; thereafter, you learn to grow and climb the spiritual ladder. There should be a conscious effort to outgrow spiritual childishness and move on to more important things in the Spirit. If the apostle Paul can make a holy cry that he wanted to know more of Jesus, who are you to be too comfortable and complacent with your spiritual experience?
Apostle Paul gave no regard to the things of the past. Rather, he sought for higher ground in Christ. (Phil. 3: 13-14). Therefore, becoming spiritually mature should be a top priority for every Christian (Matt.6:33). As a Christian, you cannot continue to live on the milk of God’s Word. He desires that you grow into the level of taking solid spiritual food. This is the process of becoming a mature Christian.
This level of growth, therefore, calls for some deeper intimacy with God, a consistent walk in the Spirit and total obedience to the will of God and His Word. This is that level where you become dead to self and you seek nothing but Christ, always living with eternity in view. As earlier stated, without growth, death is imminent. In the same vein, where there is no spiritual maturity, mediocrity becomes the order of the day. May you not be a spiritual mediocre, in the name of Jesus.
To be spiritually mature is to grow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding on the things of God. You become so intimate with God that you become His friend and He could count on you as His beloved. God wants you to experience the spiritual regeneration that comes with spiritual maturity.
This is the work of the Holy Spirit in you: to get rid of every residue of sin, the world and the ﬂesh, thereby putting off the old man and putting on the new man which is renewed in the knowledge of Christ (Col.3:8-14, Eph.4:22-24). Spiritual regeneration or degeneration, the choice is yours! Choose wisely and become an eagle for God.
Getting spiritually mature is not about counting the years you have been in Christ; rather, it is about how much of Christ is in you.
I command those powers assigned to amputate your spiritual progress to die now, in the name of Jesus.
Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know
O deeper yet, I pray
And higher ev’ry day,
And wiser, blessed Lord
In Thy precious holy Word.
Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus
And His perfect will.
Deeper, deeper, tho’ it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.
Deeper, higher ev’ry day in Jesus
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His image
Perfected at last.
