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.


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.

“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.

The desire for peace has always been part of human history. Activists protest for it, celebrities demand it, and pop culture makes it a memorable catchphrase, but humankind's natural inclination toward conflict has kept peace out of reach. True peace is so much more than the absence of conflict and its only source is the Prince of Peace. He alone offers a lasting peace that can't be found in or understood by this world. In this series, Skip Heitzig explores the theme of peace throughout the Bible, including internal, interpersonal, and eternal facets. Peace is possible.
