Well we need to see we need to keep on growing here is how.
Here are seven things we need to do in order to grow in the Lord.
(1) In fruitfulness.

(2) Into Christ.

(3) In Love.
1st Thes.3: 12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
(4) Unto perfection.

(5) Through the word.

(6) By accretion.

6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
(7) In grace and knowledge
