Growing in God 

Yesterday I cut the grass at the front of our house for the first time. This grass had been laid by our builders and over the last 4 weeks or so I had lovingly looked after it. I had watered it, removed rubbish from it I had made sure it had what it needed. But as I was cutting it God challenged me, do I make such an effort to grow in Him?

2 Peter 3:18 (NIV) says " But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.."

Peter is saying this after a verse warning Christ followers not be lead astray. If we grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus we will be protecting ourselves. So how can we grow?

I would like to suggest the following ways that we can grow:

1. Prayer, spending timing talking to God.
2. Read the Bible, grow in your knowledge of Jesus
3. Be accountable, have a couple of close friends who you can share your life with, who can provide good biblical wisdom.
4. Worship, there is something about worship, it draws us nearer.

The above list is not exhaustive but should be a  good starting point.
