Marks of Maturity

Change is fundamental to the Christian life. A continual transformation should be taking place within each of us. For this to happen we need to learn to deal with the blockages to growth and how to remove them. However, besides the need to remove blockages, there is a need to learn certain disciplines which, when present, give hope that real progress can be maintained.
God’s plan is to have a family, the church, who bear the family likeness and he has sent his Holy Spirit to help in this transformation: ‘And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit’ (2 Cor 3:18). The disciplines we will study will help us maintain our growth, and help us overcome some of the challenges that present themselves in life.
