Need for Constant Growth

by Pastor Ken

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

2 Peter 3:18

Does your life with Jesus reflect constant growth? If your answer is, yes, I salute you. If the answer is no, don’t be discouraged. You can start that growth from this moment on and you will continue throughout eternity.

Why is it so important to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

I’ll tell you why. My wife is an enthusiastic gardener; planting flowers and vegetable in the gardens around our home. I help by preparing the soil for her to plant the seeds and by helping her fertilize the soil so the seeds and plants will grow. And do they ever grow! Because we tend the soil as we should, we reap the rewards of beautiful flowers to see and smell and fresh vegetables to eat and nourish our bodies.

Jesus wants to be the soil-tender and fertilizer of your life. And when you let him, you will never stop growing. It won’t always be easy and you will have a few growing pains along the way, but the result of constant growth brings such joy and contentment you won’t want to have it any other way.

Pray: God, help me to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. Guide me to study, read, memorize, or listen to the Bible each day. Remind me to pray always and to be joyful in the love of Jesus. Help me to always be grateful to You in all circumstances. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
