What Does the Bible Say About . . . .
CHRISTIAN GROWTH & PERFECTION
"Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God." (Hebr. 6:1). The apostles in their epistles to various churches or individuals stressed the need to continue growing in the Lord. In fact, for all intents and purposes, the epistles could be repeated here in their entirety. However, due to space limitations and in the interest in concentrating on the issue of Christian growth and perfection, only verses which contained words associated with those concepts were searched for in this computerized search of the Bible. Those words and their variations are listed below. It is our hope the through this study, we may have a better understanding of how to reflect Jesus Christ in every way, doing what God wants of His people.
