How Do I Know I Am Growing at a Proper Rate?


We may have been a Christian for years, even decades. Does that mean we are automatically mature fathers/mothers in the faith? Growing to maturity (from a child in the faith to a young man/woman in the faith to a father/mother in the faith) is not a matter of time; it is a matter of making the most of the time. How do we really know when we have reached those spiritual milestones? How do we measure our progress? We are not left alone to guess. The apostle John addressed this specifically in 1 John 2:12-17. It’s time to identify how old in the Lord we really are.
