In Motion

“It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Eph 4:11-13 (NIV)

The goal of your spiritual maturity is Christlikeness.

Until you become just like Christ, you are not through. You are in the process of becoming who you are in Christ. Are you on a path of spiritual growth and development? Are you being intentional about becoming more and more like Christ?

If you are not in motion to become more like Jesus then you are creating a commotion within the Body of Christ. Each person in the Body of Christ must grow personally. Each person must be in motion being equipped for service and being encouraged towards spiritual maturity.

Where are you heading? What are you aiming for? How are you going to achieve spiritual maturity? Do you have an action plan?

“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” 1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)

Pursuing God,
