Bible Study | 2 Peter 3:14-18

How does one know whether he or she is growing spiritually? One of the first indicators that you are maturing in your Christian walk is an increasing hunger to know God. Do you cherish the time that you spend alone with God? Do you linger at the close of your prayer time, wanting just a little more from God? Do you seek out opportunities to commune with the Lord and learn more about Him? If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, you are experiencing growth in your spiritual life.

Another indicator is an increasing desire to know the truth of God’s Word. Do you find yourself meditating on the Scriptures, hoping to glean more truth from them? Have you thought about enrolling in seminary or joining a Bible study because you genuinely want to know more about the Bible? If this is so, God has given you a longing to understand His Word. Act on your desires, and you will not be disappointed.

Besides longing for God’s fellowship and wisdom, a true mark of spiritual development is an awareness of your sinfulness and the extent of God’s grace in your life. The more you learn about God’s nature, the more you will understand His grace in your life.

In doing so, it isn’t surprising that you will become more aware of your weakness and folly. You will come to realize the immensity of God’s redeeming grace. In short, when you have become humble, you have grown in understanding and acceptance of God’s will for your life.

If we are maturing in our Christian walk, then we will certainly have a growing hunger to know God. We will not be satisfied with how much we know Him or understand His ways; instead, we will yearn to know Him more and more.
