Areas of Growth in Grace


Grow in the root-grace of Faith

Believe the promises.  Let faith increase in fullness, constancy, and simplicity.

Grow in Love – Ask that your love become extended, more intense, more practical, influencing every thought, word and deed.

Grow in Humility – Know more of your own nothingness.  As you grow downward in humility, grow upward, having nearer approaches to God in prayer and more intimate fellowship with Jesus.

Grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior.  If you do not desire to know Him better, then you love Him not, for love always cries for closer contact and better understanding.


Seek to know more of Him in His divine nature, in His human relationship, in His finished work, in His death, in His resurrection, in His present glorious intercession and in His future royal advent.  These are the best tests of growth in grace.
