God Has a Process for Spiritual Growth

God has a process for spiritual growth, and He reveals that process through Scripture. It all begins when He speaks to us either through Scripture or one of the means of divine revelation mentioned in Scripture. (John 10:27) Jesus is the good Shepherd, and He’s always leading, teaching, and correcting those who follow Him and listen to His voice. (John 18:37) That Word that God speaks is the living Word, the Christ. (John 1:1) When God speaks, faith comes. (Romans 10:17) And faith gives us access into His grace. (Romans 5:2) Grace then does His works through us. (1 Corinthians 15:10) However, He won’t force Himself on us, but we must yield the members of our bodies to Him. (Romans 6:13) This is the gift of righteousness. (Romans 5:17) The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. (Romans 5:5) He won’t force us, but we must willingly submit to Him to the point of obedience as He plants the living Word into our hearts. (Matthew 13:3) His goal is that Jesus Christ will be fully formed in us. (Romans 6:13) Our fleshly nature dies a bit with each time we respond in submission and obedience to the righteousness of Christ. (Mark 8:34-35) In this way, we are purifying the Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts. (1 Peter 3:15) We are being transfigured into the same image from glory to glory by the Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
