Cooperate with the essential influences in your life. Once a plant grows upward far enough to break
through the soil, it needs nourishment from the soil, light and warmth from the sun, water from rain,
and carbon dioxide from the air. These influences are each essential for the plant to grow. Similarly, the
persons of the Trinity - God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit - are essential to your spiritual
growth. Invite them all to work together in your soul.

Are You Growing in God?

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and
established in the faith, just as you were taught.” Colossians 2:6-7

Soooo . . . you prayed and asked Jesus to forgive your sins. You invited Him to come and live in your
heart. Congratulations! You are now a Christian—a disciple, or follower, of Jesus Christ. You have become
a child of God. Now it’s time to get to know God better and grow in your relationship with him.

Growing in God is not very different from growing up as a human being. You began your life as a tiny
little baby. You didn’t know anything about the world around you. You couldn’t do anything for yourself.
You had to learn how to walk and talk and eat and play. You’re growing up even faster now, getting
bigger every day, and learning new things all the time. One day soon you will be an adult.
