The bible teaches us about growth and expansion when you practice the teachings.
“But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 25:26-30 KJV)
Nowadays, churches are designed to show off marbles and gemstones. Sadly, the present condition of churches doesn’t seem to show the meaning of its existence. The essence of the church is to accommodate a big crowd who are willing to advance God’s kingdom. Are you growing in your spiritual life? Are you willing to take part of building God’s church? Are you willing to participate in its growth?
Growth is a good thing to have. It is better to have multitudes than to have none. The church is the place for worshippers. The Lord is blessing people who are willing to grow. He is pleased with every progress you have in your spiritual life. Assess your life today. Are you pleasing God with your life? Are you growing in your Christianity?
Growth among the churches is not a common problem. Some may have just enough number of attendees. But growth within one’s self is the most important. It gauges the level of your understanding of God.
When a member is blessed, it will be evident in the church. When the denomination increases, then it is more likely that God is blessing the church. Indeed, that is a sign that the Lord is fulfilling His prophecy in the church.
It says in 2 Kings chapter 6 verse 1-3, “Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us. The house is very crowded.” The prophet Elisha provided a healthy leadership and God was able to provide infrastructure for the growing number of church goers. God can still do what He did in Elisha’s life. He can supply everything that you need. His riches are abundant so, He can bless you tremendously. All you have to do is to believe that He will fulfill His prophecies in your life. And these prophecies will surely bring you prosperity.
Our God is able to do all things. We have a rich God. Never underestimate His capacity. When doubts get in the way, this starts our disbelief in our creator. Just look around. God made everything that you can see. It is not difficult for Him to bring prosperity in your life.
