When Christians speak of Spiritual Growth - and almost all varieties of Christians use that phrase - it is our way of acknowledging that we need to change. Or rather, we need to BE changed by a power greater than ourselves. We believe that practicing Christians will inevitably be changed. Paul said it this way: If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; behold, everything has become new. (II Cor. 5:17)
Beyond that, opinions vary greatly on how that change occurs, how quick the change comes, whether or not the change is accompanied by spectacular signs, and the various forms this change takes in our individual lives. But let not your heart be troubled when Christians disagree. That's invevitable when we are all seeking to make sense of the scriptures, the teachings of our various traditions, and the reality of our own experience.
Still, everyone seems to agree on one simple truth: Following Jesus Christ with a life of discipleship will change you. You cannot remain in Christ and remain the same.(Image Credit)
