Understanding Spiritual Maturity and how it impacts the believer
Rev. Joseph Kurtz
Understanding Spiritual Maturity and how it impacts the believer....
Spiritual maturity is a developing process in which oneself in which growth in a spiritual purpose is aspiring to an aim in a spiritual level or levels. In other words as we start in our relationship with God we find ourselves in need of growth to center our lives according to His divine purpose for all of His children. In that growing process we find understanding in His words in how we must conduct ourselves as christians. Our character changes through our struggles and we become stronger for Christ in that thought.
Except our sinful behavior disrupts that time and time again. It’s a constant learning process of trials and tribulations we face in life. In that thought our maturity should be showing signs of strength in battling those concepts. Through our experiences we find wisdom as our humble nature should be open to awareness to our experiences that shape our abilities to define us as mature.
Which should be shaping our choices we make and how we live accordingly as Christ-like in our activities? In that development as time proceeds, the abilities in which we base our spiritual growth through the bible should distinguish us in acknowledging the term mature. In our default behavior we must realize that if you don’t apply yourself in learning, then you prohibit growth as you should be maturing in your spiritual endeavor.
Paul capitalizes on this concept of spiritual maturity in what it is. Many Christians proclaim their growth as this or that in order to perceive to be enlighten to holding a title of growth in the spiritual growth process. To find further understanding and realization of what spiritual maturity really is and how to apply it. To avoid pitfalls in distinguishing mistakes in falsely perceiving growth as a Christian.
We can look in the book of 1 Corinthians and observe in chapter 13 (more so in verses 4-8, NIV) in which it states, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away”. That we know as Christians our God loves us, in which His love is never-ending and never neglected of use towards us His creation. As we observe in the book of 1 Corinthians in particular verse 8. Christ instructs us to hold to same format in that our love must not fail in the same concept of use. Always pouring out to the world, and not idolized within in us in inattentively focusing on us.
Love yourself, but to a point in which it succumbs you life. Is not the purpose, the purpose is to love others and hold your meekness in supporting other Christian who fails. Just as Christ does for us in our journey as an individual. To reach newer heights in our spiritual maturity. We can observe in those who capitalized in becoming mature in that they are no longer holding attractive behavior in those who sin in tracking the failures of others. As they mature in life, they take hold in rejoicing in the bible for it holds the truth of our God.
In their determination they seek the truth and align to the principles of that truth in their journey in wherever it leads them in life. Their awareness develops in avoiding evil intentions in cosset to evil and they hold no interest in joining with others who commit evil in sinning. Their agenda proclaims in eradicating the darkness that surrounds the world in sin and those who fall prey to indulging in the actions and behavior of the term evil in the world. In conclusion, those who mature will be encouraged to mediate in prayers for all. This is what spiritual maturity means as you apply it in your life as a Christian.
