Prov 4:18

18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.


A farmer demanded that a tree be cut off from his plantation because it was not bearing fruit. His steward prevailed on Him to leave the tree till the next year to see if it would become fruitful (see Luke 13:7-9). This tree had apparent growth, only that it wasn’t bearing fruit. Think about what would have happened to that tree if it was seen to not grow at all in the first place.

The shining light emerges from the darkness at the dawn of the day, and so does the path of the believer (who is just), from the day of his conversion.

This scripture teaches progress in the Christian walk. Fruitfulness in God’s vineyard is critically demanded of us and this happens only when there is healthy growth.

Your fruitfulness as a Christian is the degree of transformation you have undergone which produces a life of holiness and Christlikeness. Fruits are visible virtues the spirit life produces in your character and conduct (see Gal 5:22).

We should give ourselves to the study of the word of God and prayers continuously for our growing and building up in Christ- This is a major key to spiritual growth. We are to keep growing in knowledge, holiness and stewardship until the full day of the Lord comes (Phil 1:6).

Spiritual growth also guarantees spiritual might and power which we desperately need for life and godliness.

Trust the Holy Spirit today for growth in the way you relate with people, in your service to God, in your character, sensitivity in the spirit and understanding of God’s word.

PRAYER: Father, thank you for today. Please help me to give myself continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word, and cause me to grow thereby, in Jesus Name. Amen! (See Acts 6:4)
