According to theologian Charles W. Stanley, to become spiritually mature we must first acknowledge any detrimental thoughts, and then we must surrender this sin to the Lord. We must embrace God’s word. This is the path that leads to spiritual maturity.
Here are some steps we can take to gain spiritual maturity.
Read the Bible daily. How can we know what God wants for us in our life if we don’t read His Word daily? The book is our instructions for life. The Holy Bible is for following God and for avoiding pitfalls.
Put His Word into action. It’s one thing to gain knowledge. It’s another to actually put that knowledge into action. “Faith with action is lost.” ~ James 2:17
Commune with other believers. When we are around other believers, irons ends up sharpening iron.
Watch what we consume. That includes content on television, smart phones, etc. Garbage in, garbage out. If you wouldn’t watch the content with your grandmother, then think twice (or three times) about consuming it.
