Growing to Maturity
Assurance of Salvation
“Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:13)
The start of any year brings along with it a breath of newness and a sparkle like no other. Everyone privileged to experience a new start is hopeful and expects the best in future days. This usually happens at the backdrop of the past experiences both pleasant and unpleasant that have formed and shaped one’s perspective on life in the previous year. Our experiences, as believers in the year 2014 have produced our prayers, resolutions and expectations in the year 2015. Those that seek to forget their past, are in danger of repeating it.
The myopic belief in false prophets, the deliberate engagement with cults and occults, the blatant embrace of heretical and misleading doctrines and the lethargic engagement in matters faith has led astray many believers and unbelievers alike. Such have also resulted to spiritual apathy in churches, disarray in the body of Christ, disregard of Scripture as the true word of God, weak and selfish governance and mix of Christianity with other faiths (syncretism). It is for these reasons that the theme of the year 2015 “Grow to Maturity” comes in handy. After the disciples “launched into the deep”, they did not wallow in the glory of the miracle, but followed Jesus to be like him.
Maturity is a high state of being that is desirably sought after. In all spheres of life be it economic, intellectual, emotional and spiritual, there is a yearning for maturity. Just like it is natural to expect a baby to grow to maturity, it’s also natural for believers to mature in faith. As believers we are driven and sustained by striving to archive spiritual maturity. The Apostle Paul clearly reflects on maturity by stating that he has not yet attained spiritual maturity but he make every effort to attain the goal and prize set before him for which God has called him upward in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:13-14). In addition he affirms to believers to yearn to ‘grow up’ and be built up in their faith in Christ and avoid any distortion and alteration of their faith (Eph. 4:11-17).
Therefore spiritual maturity is defined as the state of being fully aware and founded in the knowledge of one is in God through faith in Christ Jesus. It is simply the realization, understanding and appreciation of a believer’s position in Christ and how to lead one’s life on the basis of such knowledge. Christian maturity has nothing to do with ones chronological age; it has little to do with how old a person is. It has to do with reflecting the character of Jesus Christ. How much of the character of Jesus Christ do you reflect in your life? What growth have you seen in your life recently?
What then should be done for each believer to achieve Spiritual maturity? In the year 2015 the Cathedral focus will be on spiritual formation through observance of spiritual disciplines (prayer, scripture reading, fasting, meditation…), adopting a pragmatic and realist way of handling contemporary issues affecting us whilst being guided by scripture, maintaining our focus on the centrality of Jesus Christ in life and encourage a life of obedience to God’s word for every Christian. The Sunday preaching will give but a foretaste of the deep doctrinal teaching and engagement that will take place in the weekly Bible study sessions, prayer and healing service (Wed: 5:30pm), daily communion services (7am) and other tailor-made seminars, public lectures and tutorials to address matters spiritual maturity. We therefore urge each one of us to come on board and seek to grow to maturity in Christ Jesus.
