WHAT IS SPIRITUAL MATURITY?

Gary Kinnaman

July 15-16, 2017

What Spiritual Maturity Isn’t

  1. Spiritual gifts
  2. Seminary degrees
  3. Faith like Oral Roberts
  4. Making huge personal sacrifices
  5. Being on fire for God

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

So what is love? 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and verse 8: Love never ends.

And now for the maturity part: 1 Corinthians 13:11

What are childish ways? Anything that doesn’t fit in verses 4-7!

How do we become mature? James 1:1-3

What Is Maturity?

  1. Maturity is relating and responding to people and circumstances just like Jesus.

  2. Maturity is emotional intelligence.

  3. Immaturity is acting like a toddler. 1 Corinthians 3:1-3

  4. Maturity is getting along with others—and loving and forgiving them when they can’t get along with you. Love never ends. Another way to say this: Love has no limits. Is God’s love for you limited? Is the love of God in you for others limited? 2 Corinthians 5:18-20

  5. Love God with everything in you—and love your neighbor as much as you love yourself.

  6. Maturity is relating and responding to people and circumstances just like Jesus.

    Ephesians 5:21

    1 Corinthians 2:2

    Galatians 2:20

    Galatians 5:22-25
