Topic: You must grow spiritually.


“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” Matthew 10:8.

READ: Mark 16: 15-18 (KJV)

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.


There comes a time in the life of a Christian when he or she ought to have started teaching others the gospel of Christ. Many believers don’t get to this level because they only read their bibles rather than study deeply. When you read, you read to be informed, but when you study, you study to be transformed. It’s after you are transformed by the word that you can begin to long to see that same transformation in others, and that longing pushes you to start teaching it. There are those who have memorized the longest chapter in the bible, but they cannot teach the simple doctrines of faith because the word hasn’t transformed them. Don’t just read the bible, study it. When you experience the transforming power of the word of God, you will be eager to start teaching it too.

As a youth, you must be deliberate about spiritual growth because our lord Jesus Christ expects you to grow and perform greater works than he did during his earthly ministry.

Key points: Jesus expects you to do the works he did, and greater works indeed!
