Read: 2 Thessalonians 1

Key Verse: “We ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.” - 2 Thessalonians 1:3

Are you growing in your relationship with Jesus? What is helping you the most? There is an interesting link in this passage: If you are growing in your faith, then your love for people will increase too. Are there certain people you feel a strong desire to help? Are there people you are making sacrifices for because you care for them? Are there people you are praying for often? These all happen when your faith is growing.

Here are a few questions to consider in your walk with God:

1)    How do you break out of a slump or a stagnant pattern in your faith?
2)    What are the specific areas God wants you to grow in now?
3)    Are there new ministry endeavors God has opened up in this season?

Growing in your faith includes having a clear focus, intentional steps, listening to God, ready and willing to make changes, and developing stronger relationships with other people. Share with someone today how God is growing you and ask them what they are learning too!
