Markers of spiritual growth
by Doris Horton Murdoch
Must others see changes in the Christian’s walk in order for us to be ongoing witnesses to the world? Once we’ve accepted Christ as our personal Savior, can we remain at this initial stage of belief? Without interruptions on this walk that move us in new directions, are we truly growing as Christians? What is the journey of sanctification?
As author of the book, Testify: By the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of Our Testimony, I believe the Christian’s life should be filled with spiritual markers that redirect the footsteps of the faithful, ever-drawing the disciple closer to the likeness of Jesus and God’s eternal kingdom. Read the book. Become aware of spiritual markers and how these markers change the believer’s life. Internalize the process of sanctification so that there is a personal awareness of God ever-moving in the believer’s journey to complete salvation.
