Growth does not happen in isolation. Physical growth requires nourishment from the outside. Spiritual growth is the same. The church (not merely the institution, but the living, breathing body of Christ) is positioned to provide the nourishment we need and to help us partake of those elements that make us spiritually mature. Our ability to invest in the lives of others is fed by the disciplines and opportunities that reorient our lives toward Christ, such as worship, prayer and Bible study. As ministers of the church, each of us is responsible to pursue spiritual growth so that we may be equipped to serve others everywhere, every day.
