Path to Lasting Spiritual Growth

In the spiritual realm, there is no room for stagnancy. One either goes forward or backslides!
How then does one ensures consistent spiritual growth? :

1. Certainty of the genuineness of our salvation; because the foundation is very important.
They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built - Luke 6:48

2. Regular (daily), consistent morning and evening devotion.
You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water. -Psalm 63:1

3. Steady study and personal application of the word of God and other quality Christian literature.
They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built- Luke 6:48

4. Receiving the word of God with readiness of mind.
Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true - Acts 17:11

5. Regular fellowship in a Bible believing and Bible obeying church.
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching - Hebrews 10:25

6. Desiring higher heights through faith and prayer.
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.- 1 Peter 2:2-3

7. Shunning useless and fruitless comparison.
We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise 
- 2 Corinthians 10:12

8. Daily self examination.
Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith - 2 Corinthians 13:5

9. Involvement in God's service.
Moses said to the Gadites and Reubenites, “Should your fellow Israelites go to war while you sit here?- Numbers 32:6

10. Self denial and sacrificing of some legitimate things.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. - Mathew 16:24

Spiritual growth can only be attained if the Christian desires it, works towards it, prays for it and believes God for it!
