Marks of Maturity

 

We are complex people.  People who are constantly living in light of our past, with a hope to the future all while moving on in life in the present.  Regularly we are trying to forge a new way, wanting to figure out how to be the man or woman God has created us to be.  Do you ever get discouraged in that journey?  Knowing that God wants you to grow, but being unsure of how to do so?  That seems to be the story for many of us.  We know God desires to make us more like Christ but we are not really sure how to go about that.  

 

Well we have created a resource called the Marks of Maturity that will help you as you journey through the Christian life trying grow more into the image of Christ than ever before.  Below is a guide that will help you identify areas in which you desire to grow.  We have 12 areas birthed out of our mission statement that we exist to make disciples who love God, live the gospel, embrace our community, and plant movements.  You can download it by clicking on the link below:

 

Marks of Maturity Guide

 

How to use the Guide:

Step 1: Pray and choose 1-2 areas you feel like you most need to grow in out of the 12 marks listed.

Step 2: Talk with another Christian about the 1-2 areas you need to grow in and ask them to either meet with you to walk through this with you or to keep you accountable as you personally walk through them.  

Step 3: Look at the Biblical resources page and the other resources page and decide on a couple of resources you will use to help you grow in these areas.  

Step 4: Set some goals in how you would like to grow in this area and a timeline of study and growth.  Remember you can't put a timeline on the work of God in your life, but this timeline simply helps you to stay focused on growing and do the necessary homework to foster that growth.

Step 5: Repeat the process with other areas of growth.  

Step 6: Begin to help others walk through steps 1-5.
