Growth can come by pruning, cultivating, or simply letting it happen. God wants the church to grow, and all these methods are used.
Growth takes place in one of three ways. Things grow because one of three things happens.
First, some things grow just because it is in the very nature of those things to grow. You don’t have to do anything, you don’t have to feed them or nourish them or encourage them. Some things just grow.
