Saturdays with Sarah {SPIRITUAL MATURITY}

It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that we started this study two and a half months ago and today it comes to a close. A lot has taken place in my life during this time and I can appreciate the theme we finish with... spiritual maturity. In the video blog below, Sarah Martin shares about that importance. Some may not consider this area to be a stress point but the fact is, many of us do stress out about our faith (along with the other stress points we've covered). But true spiritual maturity is about taking everything to the throne of the King. It's at this place where we wait and where we worship, trusting that He is in control.  

In Sarah's vlog, she highlights the working definition of spiritual maturity which is included in the first pages of Chapter 10. Take a few moments to soak it all in. The reality is, as believers in Christ, we should be moving forward not stuck in a rut. Sarah reminds us that if we're staying in one place then we're not moving closer to the Lord. 

God is at work within us ... whether we see it or not. – Sarah Martin

Trust in that! Trust in HIM!

For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose. - Philippians 2:13

It is not my ability, but my response to God's ability, that counts. 
- Corrie Ten Boom

To live is Christ. At the end of the day, it's all about the Truth of the Gospel, CHRIST, living in and through us. So that He may be glorified and so more would come to know this Truth. That is my prayer - for you and for me.
