The Process of Progress - A Choice to Change
James 1:3-4 Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing. NKJ
God is more concerned with our character than our comfort. God's goal is for us to become more like Christ! We make choices everyday. We are either in harmony with God, or in unity with the devil. What are we becoming?
1. Truth is Spiritual. Maturity is intentional. When you are a baby you are self-centered.
The more you spend with the Father, the more you will become like Him!!!
We have a will. We have to want to grow.
2. Must develop our Spirituality. Need to abide to have dominion. Obedience is evidence of maturity.
3. Must desire to demonstrate maturity. Someone should be able to see it. Needs to be in our heart!!! We have the fruit of the spirit. We bear the fruit as we need it.
