II Peter 3:18 – But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ to him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
It requires work to grow. It requires us to know who the Lord is (John 14:6), and also who we are (I Peter 2:9). It Requires us to know that while we’ve all sinned (Romans 3:23), we don’t have to continue in that state (Romans 6:1-2). Growth requires a dedication to discipleship, where we understand our task and responsibility as servants Growth requires us to be focused enough to hear only the Voice of the lord, blocking out all other noise. It requires us to seek daily, those people who will help us to enhance who We are (Proverbs 27:17). It requires us to trust that what we are currently going through is a part of the Process (Philippians 16). Growth requires faith in the overall purpose, even when we don’t understand the path.
