5 Steps To Spiritual Maturity

By | Blog | No Comments

In a previous post, we identified 5 Marks of Spiritual Immaturity. In this post we look at steps, you can take to grow and mature in your faith as a Christian. 5 Steps To Spiritual Maturity 1. Submitting your life to God’s Word. Paul clarifies that the work of the preachers and leaders of the church is plant and water with the Word of God. As the Christian and the church is watered through consistent and faithful teaching, God causes growth. In the same way the consistent reading and studying of Scripture in your personal life yields growth through the power of God and the work of the Holy Spirit. Have you surrendered to follow God through obedience and faithfulness to His Word? 2. Pursuing unity in the Gospel message and through ministry instead of being jealous or causing strife. Christians grow in community with one another, not alone. To grow in your faith, you should take the step to commit yourself to the Lord and His church. The church is the community of faith, the family of God, where we study, encourage, admonish, and care for one another. Too often the church has men and women who divide the…

By | Blog | No Comments

I am teaching passage by passage through the book of 1 Corinthians on Wednesday nights and would like to invite you to join me and other members for a deep study of Scripture each week at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary. Paul writes to the Corinthian church to encourage, instruct, admonish, and rebuke them with the Gospel. I recently taught through 1 Corinthians 3:1-9 where he explains to them that their spiritual immaturity is apparent through the testimony of others, divisions in the church, and their worldly behavior. To help each one of us examine our own lives and our church the following are 5 characteristics or marks of spiritual immaturity. 5 Marks of Spiritual Immaturity 1. Pride- Resistance to the authority of God’s Word Paul was not able to address them in the manner that he wanted, or even the way that they thought they deserved. This was because they were still acting as if they were new Christians, like infant believers. They had not matured due to a resistance to trusting and obeying the Word of God. The Corinthian church sought to live according to the wisdom (philosophy, practices, or customs) of the world instead of the foolishness of…

Don’t Miss The Warning Signs

By | Blog | No Comments

It’s likely that you or someone you know has been to the doctor for a physical, only to be surprised when the doctor delivered bad news. Many people miss the warning signs concerning their health. The same thing applies to the church. A church and its members are often surprised when they find out that the future is uncertain or that the church is unhealthy. The reason for this is because they don’t know the warning signs to look for. I recently spent time with a group of pastors in the East TN region and the issue of diagnosing the church health was the topic of conversation. In this post I’d like to share with you, the members of New Union, some warning signs or characteristics of an unhealthy church. In this post, I’d like to share with you some warning signs or characteristics of an unhealthy church. The members value their preferences over the needs of the unreached in their community and the world.  This usually takes place when a church is resistant to new ideas, new ministries, or new opportunities to reach the lost and un-churched in the community. Resistance to change often takes shape when a church holds on…
