Spirituality V. Religion: What's Your Favor

Posted by Forever AMEN on November 17, 2021 at 6:30 PM

Spiritual growth is a prominent subject In our world today. Commonly misunderstood by many who try to associate spirituality with religion. Amazingly we hear the word religion more times on a Sunday than it is mentioned in the entire Bible only appearing five times. Spiritual growth will be our topic for this week we hope to enlighten those who desire to grow spiritually. Spiritual growth can also be an embarrassing subject because we'd like to believe that we are successful in our spirituality. A story in the Bible comes to mind when I think on this subject. The apostles who traveled with Jesus were unable to cast out a demon. Jesus firmly rebuked their unbelief and then proceeded to tell them how to succeed. Remember as well that it was the apostles who asked Jesus to increase their faith. And so we learn from this story that there should be a desire for spiritual growth and there definitely is an answer.

As an opening S we will look at Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. We see here that the scriptures were provided long ago that by them, and through that dreaded valley of patience, might have hope. Thus we need to patiently engage Scripture to grow spiritually.
In John 6:63 Jesus said it is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you THEY are spirit and they are life. Here we have the Living Word informing us that His words are “spirit” and they are “life.” So to grow spiritually and to know how to live according to the spirit and not the flesh….we must resort to Scripture. Romans 8:1 There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk NOT after the flesh but after the Spirit. Notice the “S” in Spirit is capatalized showing diety. In other words we must live a spiritual life

Welcome to our first encounter here on Forever Amen. Tonight’s topic will be spiritual growth. I will be open for questions after this brief introduction. We settled on a Chicken S.O.U.P for the Spirit approach. The S will be for Scripture the O for observation, the U for understanding an of course the P will be for prayer.
