Q. I've been told that I'm supposed to be growing in my faith, but I don't think it's happening. Am I missing something?
God's will is for us to grow stronger in our faith. Only then will God be able to use us as fully as possible.
When we come to Christ, the Bible says, we are like newborn babies. But an infant isn't meant to be a baby forever, but to grow and become strong and eventually reach adulthood. When we first come to Christ, we are “spiritual newborns” – but God's plan is for us to grow strong in our faith and become more like Christ.
This happens as we make use of the “spiritual food” God has provided for us: the Bible. Through it we learn about him and his will for our lives. God also has given us the privilege of prayer. In addition, he has given us fellowship with other believers. If any of those is missing, our growth will be stunted.
Never miss a local story.
Set aside time every day to be with God, and ask him to lead you to a church where you can hear his word and grow.
