2. “Forgiveness and Spiritual Growth”
Growing spiritually develops out of having an intimate, growing relationship with Jesus. In order for this to happen, we must become familiar with and knowledgeable of His word. The Bible encourages us to “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2Peter 3:18).
The Bible gives us many guidelines to help us grow spiritually. “As newborn babies want milk, you should want the pure and simple teaching. By it you can grow up in your salvation” (1Peter 2:2). (ICB)
As we take in the Word of God, from the Bible, the Holy Spirit is able to make it real in our lives, both mentally in our understanding and experientially in our daily living. This will make us like the strong, healthy tree in Psalm 1:3, our lives bearing ‘fruit’ as we grow closer to God.
The subject of this study is to learn ‘How to Grow Spiritually’ using ‘Forgiveness’ as an example. It has in mind primarily the application of God’s Word in our everyday life.
