As time is speeding up there is a need to mature in the things of the Lord and also just mature over all. There is no more..I'll do it tomorrow...I have another month...It's NOW.
Now is the time when Christians/Church as a whole need to stand up for what is right and true according to the word. The world is falling apart quickly and the church is suppose to have the answer - Jesus Christ. His return is very soon and we need to repent and live a holy life. With out that how can we expect to show the world the one true living God. There is a great post about Holiness here

What is it that makes us grow in God?

I want to grow so much more in the Lord. To walk out the fullness of what God has for me as His child. To do that takes sacrifice of time but even more so of me. And by saying that I mean that I have to "die" to grow into what God wants me to be. I can no longer be distracted by my agenda but I have to be focused on God's agenda.

Reading and hearing the word of God is very important and really critical to your walk with God. As the word says "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God". You can't have faith unless you hear Him and you hear Him by reading/listening to the word.

I know that as a mom of 3 little ones it can be hard at times to get that quiet time in. We can all find something else to do during their nap...laundery, cleaning, Facebook, blogging...but in that time we need to make it a priority to get into God's presence. I know for me my time is usually in the evening when they have gone to bed. My dear husband works at night so I have time to myself with the Lord. Other times it is during afternoon nap.

Being faithful in attending a church that speaks forth the truth of God's word is also very important to growth in the Lord. God commands us to not forsake the assembling of ourselves together. Being apart of a church body is vital for your encouragement to get back out into this world and live a Christian life-style. Not being fake or a hypocrite but truly walking it out - - being Christ-like.

So, I challenge you today, to get away into the Word and into His presence and let Him speak to you, change you, up lift you, and love on you. We all need more of Him and less of us. And to be in a church that will help you grow even more.
