What is the key to Christian Growth? Is it attending Church, is it having lots of Christian friends, is it trying to do what is right. All of these things are great but the key to Christian Growth is reading and knowing the Word of God.

Paul Scanlon, a prominent Christian leader and leadership expert, said this:

When the devil comes to tempt you, it is no good saying to him, “Well, this is what I think is written”. If that’s where you are at you are in danger. That is what Eve tried to do. The devil asked her, “Did God really say….? Because he knew she wasn’t around when God had said it to Adam. She was in possession of second hand information. If you don’t know what God really said, then the devil is going to keep on asking you stuff that he knows you don’t know. That is why we have got to get the Word of God into our bones. When we do, it feeds and fills us out. It’s no good saying, “This is what my pastor said is written…” you have to know it for yourself.

The Bible says in Romans 10 v 17

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

We grow in our faith when we feed on the Word Of God – we look forward to our new series starting on Sunday entitled “The Word of God”

Have a great day!
