================================================================================

"Receiving the Holy Spirit is a wonderful experience. New converts may feel that this is the end of their search for God, and the rest of their lives will be a breeze. After all, God is not only with them but has taken up residence within them.  Receiving the Spirit may be the end of their search for God, but it is only the beginning of their walk with God. The term new birth is an apt description of the salvation experience.  The title of this quarter’s study is Growing in Grace. Much as babies grow to physical maturity, newly born Christians grow spiritually.  When new believers begin to walk with God, they soon find that even though the Holy Spirit is in them, their human wills and freedom of choice are still intact. It may come as a surprise to find that God does not control their actions as a puppeteer controls a puppet.  Although we are saved by God’s grace and not by our own works, we must choose whether to follow God’s direction or go our own ways. Determining to follow what are known as spiritual disciplines as presented in God’s Word can help believers grow in God.  Some of these spiritual disciplines are covered in this quarter’s lessons.  These spiritual disciplines are not just for new Christians, however, but for all Christians.  No matter how long we have been servingGod, there is still room for improvement. As long as we live, we are to “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18).


Developing a relationship with God is of utmost importance. God speaks to us through His Word, and we speak to Him when we pray.  A relationship is not likely to develop without communication. Therefore, reading the Word and hearing the Word, combined with praying on a regular basis are necessary. But it is up to us to commit to making time in our daily schedules for these important disciplines.  Another spiritual discipline is worship.  Though circumstances change, God never changes. Even when we may be disappointed, disillusioned, or distressed and do not feel like worshiping, God is still worthy of our worship. He still loves us, is ever faithful, and

continues to watch over us and care for us even in difficult circumstances. Disciplining ourselves to worship God during the hard times shows that we trust Him and have faith in Him to work out the situations.  The discipline of forgiveness may be one of the most difficult to follow. People who haven been deeply hurt may feel that they will never be able to forgive their offenders. In such situations, forgiveness may take time and will certainly require God’s help. However, forgiveness is necessary for several reasons.  Unforgiveness can turn into bitterness, which harms the person who was wronged, not the perpetrator. It can cause physical problems. It can make a person feel like a prisoner bound by the offense. But forgiveness frees that person even if the offender never apologizes."
