GROW

Ephesians 4:14-15  so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,

What is the goal that a disciple should aim for?  There are many things we need to do, and much that God has already done, but what are we striving for in the end?  What does God want from us?

To boil it all down into one simple thought:  God wants us to grow to be more like Jesus.  He wants this so that we can fulfill His purposes for us.  He created us with intent and He wants us to live up to that.  He made us alive in Christ and He wants us to use that life for Him.

But in order to do what God wants from us, we’ve got to move beyond just being saved sinners.  We’ve got to solidify ourselves with sound doctrine so we don’t believe every little thing we hear.  We’ve got to learn God’s character so that we know His will.  We’ve got to grow in fellowship with Him and grow in our faith.

In a disciple’s life, stagnation is not an option.  We were chosen for holiness, even before the foundation of the world.  We have been given lives to live on purpose, for God’s glory.
