3. Your Actions – Our spiritual maturity is measured by our actions. A spiritually matured person will demonstrate an exceptional actions towards his spiritual advancement. To grow spiritually, you must not lack in actions. You must prove your love to others through your actions. You must not only be lazy but you must also be rich in good works. James 2:26, Heb 11:7, Mattew 5:13-16.

4. Your Attitude – Our spiritual maturity is revealed through our attitude. Impartiality towards the poor and less privileged doesn’t speak well of your spiritual maturity, in other words, learn to treat people equally.

6. Your Desires – Longings of our hearts and our prayers should be according to the will of God. We should seek the things that bring glory to God. When your desires are not channeled into Godliness then your spiritual maturity is in question. You must not desire things from God so as to impress and oppress others with it or even show off your talents or gifts to spite others. Set your desire on things above. Colosians 3:1-2, James 4:1-3, 3 John 5:14, Eph 1:15-23, psalm 106:16.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own weblog and was curious what all
    is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
