Beth-El Farmworker Ministry - What is Spiritual Growth and How Does It Affect You

  1. 1. What is Spiritual Growth and How Does It Affect You
  2. 2. Introduction  Spiritual growth is the process of becoming more and more like Jesus Christ. When we place our faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit begins the process of making us more like Him, conforming us to His image. Spiritual growth is perhaps best described in 2 Peter, which tells us that by God's power we have “everything we need” to live lives of godliness, which is the goal of spiritual growth.
  3. 3. Spiritual Growth - How is it done?  In order for spiritual growth to occur, you first need to make sure you possess a true spiritual life through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life" .
  4. 4. How Does It Affect You  Being spiritual is being religious or pious  Spirituality has an end/ finish line  Spiritual growth requires Religious activity  Spiritual growth is Difficult  Spiritual growth is a step-by-step process  Spiritual growth is alien to & separate from everyday life
  5. 5. Being Spiritual is Being Religious or Pious  Spirituality is NOT religion – it is the knowledge and proper application of universal laws that are as real as they are invisible. Let me explain. “Religion” as a word is said to originate from the Latin phrase “Re-ligare” or “Relegere,” which in itself has alternate meanings depending on grammatical placement in language and who’s talking.
  6. 6. Spirituality Has an End  Spirituality as a goal is NOT targetable – you can NEVER be fully spiritual. This is one of the biggest markers of someone who has no clue it’s a journey. It’s not a destination. So you can’t possibly say you are satisfied/content with yourself as a human because you know you always have room to improve and better yourself.
  7. 7. Spiritual Growth Requires Religious Activity  While you may be able to align yourself with a positive religion that helps you with proper tools and resources for self- discovery, it is not necessary to be able to do these things to be highly enlightened. You may have heard that enlightenment, the destination of spiritual growth, involves having past-life memories, ability to meditate for hours, ability to live in states of continual bliss, among others.
  8. 8. Spiritual Growth is Difficult  Herein is a huge bone of contention. It has been said that the process can be quite painful, considering as we mentioned before it involves letting go of preconceived ideas that you may have about what it involves. Again, “life is what you make it.” If you are coming from a religious, cultural, then it definitely will be the elephant in your room since you have to learn about you from a higher perspective.
  9. 9. Spiritual Growth is a Step-By-Step Process  No, it doesn’t have to be. It can be instantaneous. Think of some quality you would like to have right now, such as inner peace, greater focus, or more self-love. How long do you think you’d have to wait to acquire these qualities? Say to yourself, “I accept more of this quality into my life. I am NOW more peaceful, focused, and loving to myself,” or whatever fits the quality you choose.
  10. 10. Spiritual Growth is Alien To  Nothing can be further from the truth. Spiritual growth is discovering YOURSELF. That in itself is reality in no better terms. In fact, making your everyday life work is an important part of your spiritual growth. Paying your rent, taking good care of yourself, and being self-sufficient are as important to your spiritual growth as meditating.
  11. 11. Who I Am…  Beth-El Farmworker Ministry is Religious organizations which provides the help in hunger relief, education and spiritual growth. 
