Investing in Spiritual Growth


The biblical book of 2 Peter concludes with this exhortation to spiritual growth:

“But grow in the grace and knowledge
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.”
(2 Peter 3:18, ESV)

At Ingleside, we believe that maximum spiritual growth usually occurs when we are making an investment at three levels:

(1) daily personal habits – chief among these habits is the practice of reading and meditating on God’s Word, the Bible.

(2) weekly involvement with other believers – this would include large group worship and small group study and interaction.

(3) periodic intensive spiritual growth experiences – this would include events like retreats, camps, and conferences.

Our Bible conference this Sunday afternoon, February 25, is just such an intensive spiritual growth experience.  I encourage you to make it a priority!
