Today is part three of the series “How Can We Grow Spiritually.” The first two parts discussed why spiritual growth is so essential. We discussed how growth does not happen automatically. We have to do it intentionally. For a transformation to take place, we must change how we think. It takes commitment. We saw from Scripture… that in both our spiritual and physical lives we receive one gift that is the most powerful possession we have. Spiritually… it is the Holy Spirit. Physically… it is the gift to choose… or free choice. Spiritual growth occurs when we are using both powerful gifts together to transform ourselves. We discussed four common ways we can get stuck, and stall out our spiritual growth. Today I would like to discuss some essential spiritual tools to guide our personal growth. Some of these you will be aware of… but a few may give you food for thought.
