Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 1:2).

God is interested in our total well-being and prosperity in life. Of course, God wants you to experience spiritual growth and development. The spirit controls the physical life. When your soul and spirit are healthy and experience growth, hence, your physical body will be full of life, healthy and sound. No wonder the Bible says in Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” It is the spiritual that controls the physical world we see.

Even though it is essential that we experience physical growths such as: buying cars, building houses, owning estates, giving birth to children, having a good job, etc., without spiritual growth and development, the physical growths amount to nothing and vanity. No wonder Jesus Christ says In Mark 8:36, “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” The physical growth can never in anyway guarantee eternal security.

Any Christian who wants to grow spiritually, he must endeavor to invest his time and resources on spiritual things such as: studying and meditating on the Word of God, praying regularly and also involving himself in fasting. He should desire to be a soul-winner and participate fully in church activities in order to grow spiritually with other brethren. The Word of God tells us that iron sharpens iron (Proverbs 27:17). The Bible further tells us in Hebrews 19:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” A Christian should always desire to grow spiritually.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should desire to grow and develop in the spirit which controls the physical world we see. Shalom!
