An Encouraging Word

 

 

 
 

GROW!


“And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine (instructions) and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.“ Acts 2:42


Throughout scripture we are admonished to grow.  What does that look like and how do we do that?  Luke, the author of Acts, understood that consistent spiritual growth could only come through a consistent daily diet of the word of God, fellowship, communion, and prayer.   How’s your diet?

 

Growth begins with a desire.  1 Peter 2:2 says, “desire the sincere milk of the word of God, that ye may grow thereby.”  I cannot help but look at verse 1 of this same chapter because it provides the prerequisite to our desiring the sincere milk of the word of God.  We must lay aside all malice, guile, hypocrisies, envies and all evil speaking.  Wow!  In other words, we must empty out, before we can truly be filled with the word of God.

 

We need the word of God and we also need a heart for true fellowship and relationship.  Notice the words again in our key verse: doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread (communion - a celebration of our faith in Jesus Christ) and prayers.  All of these ingredients are needed for supernatural growth. 

 

As we embark upon the fall season, I challenge us to “fall back” into an intentional commitment to grow in our daily walk with the Lord through studying God’s word, genuine fellowship with other believers and a sustained prayer life.  Many times we want to inspect others and their growth level, but today I ask us to remember daily growth begins with us individually first, which will then result in a collectively growth. 

 

“And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”  Acts 2:46-47
