God wants you to grow up spiritually. To mature means that we grow deep roots in Christ and plant seeds of the Gospel in others. Just like physical growth, you were created to mature spiritually. The process starts as you commit your life to Christ and identify with Him. Then, you mature by growing in His Word and serving others. Finally, you become a spiritual "father" as you lead others to Jesus. Every stage of spiritual growth is important in a church, so identify where you are now and what your "next step" is to grow deeper in Christ. Always know that spiritual growth takes place in community. Our God is with you and for you. Grow in Him.
