Growing Up Spiritually

One thing that God wants for all of us is to GROW UP. He does not want us to remain spiritual babies but sadly many of us are stuck at various stages of childhood or adolescence. Peter’s first letter tells us “as new-born babes, desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2). Paul tells us in Ephesians that God gave us the different ministries in the church “for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry … till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13) and we are told in Hebrews that “though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles … you have come to need milk and not solid food … (Hebrews 5:12-14). So how do we grow up?
In 2016 we recorded the teaching sessions at a Conference held by Servants of the Lord Ministries in Nottingham UK. Most of the sessions were taught by Joseph Hedgecock but the four Early Bird sessions were presented by his adopted daughter, Patty Hedgecock Ross. Patty spoke on various aspects of Growing Up Spiritually which was the theme of the Conference. She shares some of her personal testimony and speaks frankly about some of her own practical and spiritual challenges as a wife and mother. She compares the Tree of Life with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and teaches the difference between walking in the flesh and walking in the Spirit. This is a link to the first session All four sessions are available to watch on our YouTube channel.
