The Light Daily Devotional – Vital Signs of Spiritual Maturity
Focus: Vital Signs of Spiritual Maturity
The word for today
Victory over sin is a factor that determines how much a man has grown spiritually. Mature people walk in the spirit and do not live to fulfill the lust of the flesh!
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16 NKJV
Spiritual maturity is not measured by good appearance, title, the position of authority, years in God’s service, or being vast in spiritual languages and customs but by how much a man is free from sin. A man who is living in sin, irrespective of who he is, will be regarded as a sinner. Your spirituality remains valid before God if it helps you to overcome sin.
The vital signs of spiritual immaturity are seen in ungodliness, unrighteousness, wickedness, greediness, dishonesty, hatred, marital infidelity, sexual perversion, tax evasion, examination misconducts and malpractices, unforgiveness, fraud, idolatry, rebellion, deceit and other works of the flesh. Spiritual maturity begins when the word of God becomes the lifestyle of a man and he has submitted himself to God to be helped in bringing everything to obey Christ in his life.
Have you been helped to overcome sin?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to live above sin in Jesus’ name. Amen
Emphasis: Spiritual maturity is not a matter of spiritual packaging but deliverance from sin and the works of the flesh!
Have a Gracious Wednesday!
