YOUR SPIRITUAL MATURATION

Ephesians 4:32 (TNIV) “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

          We all have a tendency to say and do things we regret. There are times we wish we could hit rewind and have it to do all over again. Unfortunately, we cannot. It is in the maturation process of our spirit man that we begin to shed these ungodly habits. And that is exactly what they are; very bad habits. Things that we have allowed ourselves to think, say and do that have become ingrown in our psyche and in our daily routine. We must break the cycle. We can by lifting it up to God regularly and allowing the Holy Spirit to teach us the better way to handle ourselves as true believers. We must allow God to progressively work in us so that we are proper ambassadors for Him.
          This is not an instantaneous event, but rather something we grown into as we walk with Christ. Yet we must have the desire to change. Our salvation and resulting entrance of the Holy Spirit in us is the start. Now we must allow Him to guide and direct us. We must also seek it. We can ignore the Spirit’s leading without question, we are not robots. But don’t beat yourselves up about it; learn and grow at the feet of God and submit to His ways. He knows what He is doing, knows what He wants you to do for the Kingdom and His glory and knows how to take you there. Everything in life takes time; even your spiritual maturation. Surrender to His will for you and you will be amazed at the results.

WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
