Stewardship – Spiritual Growth

For the next number of weeks, let’s look at the different aspects of Stewardship.  This week we will look at  S  which stands for Spiritual Growth.

S            SPIRITUAL  GROWTH

Romans 12:6 tells us that the Holy Spirit has given each one different gifts (spiritual gifts) according to the grace given us. 1 Cor. 12:7  says that every member of the body of Christ has been given some spiritual gift that is an evidence of the Spirit working in his/her life.  These gifts are intended to build up the members of the Christian community and are not to be used for selfish advantage.

The SDA Church Manual states:  When members employ these spiritual gifts as faithful stewards of God’s varied grace, the church

  • is protected from the destructive influence of false doctrine,
  • grows with a growth that is from God, and
  • is built up in faith and love.

We each have a responsibility in furthering God’s work and in building up the church as we use the Spiritual Gifts given to us.
