GOD'S PLAN FOR EVERY BELIEVER
The most concise command in God’s Word that encapsulates both the goal as well as God's method for every beleiver is found in 2 Peter 3:18, “But keep growing in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”.
The Christian way of life is all about spiritual growth through grace and knowledge. There are four major stages of spiritual growth outlined in Ephesians 3:14-20 which culminates in a life “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).
As the believer grows spiritually by living in fellowship with God and growing in the Word of God he enters into more and more of true freedom and abundant life promised by Jesus Christ Himself to every believer who continues in His word (Jn 8:31-32; 10:10).
Through fellowship with God and spiritual growth the believer glorifies the Lord by reflecting God's grace and power in his daily life.
