In order to mature, you cannot stay the same. Neither can we stay stagnant in our faith. We must move forward. But we can’t do it on our own. The only way to grow spiritually is by focusing and concentrating on God, not on growth itself. Because of God, you can move forward. In order to grow spiritually, we must recognize that our problem is sin, that we are powerless to remove our own sin, and believe that Jesus died for our sins and has the power to forgive them and heal us. We’ve got to trust Him enough to move forward towards His healing power.
