Hear the Word of the Lord.
Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
V2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
I am going to teach you something today that is going to advance your spirit to the next place that God has prepared for you, if you receive it. I say place instead of level or rung on the spiritual ladder, we, (the body of Christ) receive the same truths of God at different times.
Maturing spiritually in Christ isn’t determined by learning or knowing something that noone else knows, somehow separating you or me from others by advanced understanding. Maturing spiritually in Christ is practicing what you know and sharing it with someone else so they too can receive the supernatural blessings from God that you have received from God.
I say practicing, because knowing a truth does not advance your spirit. You must practice truth before it takes root in you and makes fruit.
