The Golden Key to Spiritual Growth

In this Sunday morning message, Pastor Greg Laurie says that there’s no standing still in the Christian life. We must move forward and grow, and in “The Golden Key to Spiritual Growth,” Pastor Greg tells us how.

Notes

Why do some succeed and others fail as Christians?

Answer: Because they choose to.

By not choosing spiritual growth, they are in effect, choosing spiritual decline.

  • Read: Mark 4:1–9, 13–19

The job of the sower is to just throw the seed out far and wide.

The only way to tell if someone is really a Christian is through the test of time.

A prodigal will always return home.

  • Rocky-Road Hearers

“Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.” —G.K. Chesterton

It’s possible they have built their faith on the wrong foundation.

It could be due to persecution.

Every real Christian will be persecuted in some way!

  • Thorny Hearers

“The second best is often the worst enemy of the best.”

A thorn or weed is anything that crowds Jesus out of our lives.

  • Faithful Hearers

The golden key to spiritual growth is this . . . how you hear the Word of God.

Hearing and obeying the Word . . . that is the golden key of spiritual growth.

Fact-Check Your Faith – Part B

In this age of information overload and misinformation, it's difficult to know which sources to trust-especially in a crisis. Fact-checking is common as we try to prove and disprove reports and then decide what to believe. Although fear and mistrust are a natural response in times of trouble, God wants us to develop a different response: faith. So what does it take to cultivate a faith that overrides fear? In this series, Skip Heitzig explores the heroes of faith in Hebrews 11 so we can learn from and follow their example. It's time to fact-check your fear with faith.
