(2 Pet 3:17-18)  Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. {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.

Sin will stunt our spiritual growth. If we harbor sin in our life and refuse to let it go (or fail to wrestle ourselves free from it) our spiritual growth will be hindered.  Many fail to reach spiritual maturity and remain babes in Christ simply because they are in bondage to some sin that they fail to rid themselves of.

This is not uncommon and explains why we have so many who fail to grow in grace.  When we do grow in grace we will experience spiritual fruitfulness and will see results of our witnessing and soul winning.

Even when we are guilty of doctrinal error it will stunt our spiritual growth.  We must study the scriptures and rightly divide the truth from God's word.  It will bring us security, certainty, and most of all clarity.

Sometimes we fail to mature and we don't understand why.  This is why it is important for us to examine ourselves, our beliefs, our actions and our walk with Jesus.

Get rid of the things in your life that hinder your spiritual growth.  It is the right decision to make.
Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
