Spending Time With God (Part 1)

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. II Peter 3:18
The child of God is commanded to grow. It is true that the birth of a Christian takes place in an instant. The moment a person puts their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to save them, they are born into God’s family. Praise the Lord! However, this does not need to be the place that we stop. Just as a human person sees physical growth after birth, the spiritual person should see spiritual growth and maturity after their spiritual birth. Yet many times it seems that this is not a normal occurrence. Why is that? I think we could list multiple reasons why this could be, but I want to share with you what I believe is the most important. If a child of God expects to see spiritual growth, they must spend time with God. Every other area of growth comes from this. Spending time with God is how a person gets to know God. Yes, we can hear about Him all of the time, but if we don’t spend time with Him, we won’t really know Him. II Peter 3:8 tells us to grow in the knowledge of God.  How else can we do this other than spending time with Him?  Take a little extra time today to spend with Him and start growing today.
