"Growing as a Christian isn't about our own human effort, but about holding fast to Christ, the Head of the Body."

January 17th, 2020

What does it mean to grow as a Christian? Lots of people have lots of different ideas about what it means to be a Christian and how you grow as a Christian. But the Bible is clear that growing as a Christian is not about our effort, nor is it about extra rules we add to our lives to make us seem more religious. Christian growth always happens as a result of holding fast to Christ, trusting in His Gospel, and following His commands.

Application Questions:

  1. What does it look like to "hold fast" to Christ in your spiritual life?
  2. In what ways are you insecure about your walk with Christ? How does the Gospel speak to those insecurities?
  3. How can you cultivate grace-fueled sanctification in your life?
