Maturity is a Process

Scripture Reading: John 14:25-27Luke 10:38-42  

As we grow in our relationship with God, so does our spiritual maturity.  Growing isn't always fun - in fact, it can be pretty painful - but during our trials and hard times, we must never forget a simple truth.

We can choose to learn from life's difficulties and hardships and mature into the man or woman God has created us to be, or we can choose to be upset and learn nothing. 

James 1:2-4 tells us to consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (NIV).

The next time you face a trial or difficult situation, look to God for your joy and strength and know that He is using it to usher you into a new level.
