Growth in the Kingdom of God is possible, and it is beyond our imagination most of the time. The Spirit is longing to increase our capacity for living out Kingdom power in this world.
“Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” (Mark 4:24,25, NIV)
Daily I find the opportunity for growth in the Kingdom of God. There is the opportunity to soak in the written Word and allow the Spirit to then lead me to the Living Word. There is the opportunity of prayer as the Spirit tunes my heart to respond. There is the beauty of spiritual reading that will guide my mind and heart into deeper possibilities.
Daily I can find opportunities to make excuses as well. I’m too busy. I’m too stressed. I can’t find time.
Every gets formation in their lives. Which kind of formation is up to us.
