3 Gifts of God’s Growth Plan – Holy Spirit, Church, Word of God
God does not want maintenance, He desires growth. We are not born to maintain. We maintain many things in life but not our spiritual walk. Not our marriage either.
1. Holy Spirit
Church is powerless without the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit is here to grow us.
John 14:26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
Holy Spirit is with you on Monday when you need help at work. He is your advocate working on your side.
All were gathered in one accord, the Holy Spirit fell, then miraculous growth took place.
Holy Spirit will give you visions and dreams.
Ephesians 2:19 So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family.
We are a house, a home, not a business.
For us to flourish roots have to go down.
You don’t just pick and choose. Everyone contributes.
We are the church. Love Jesus, love the church.
Church is designed for growth.
Ephesians 4:12 Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.
3. The Word of God
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
Isaiah 55:11 It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
The Word of God will grow you.
Luke 2:52 Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.
Jesus grew as He spent time in the Word.
God has set you up for favour.
