Today I want to present you a thought-provoking article by T. Austin-Sparks that deals with our (in)ability to grow spiritually. Actually, if we do not grow, we are going to wither. Brothers and sisters, this may happen to any one of us. Don’t we think that such a temptation could always be easily discovered by our reason alone. Indeed, it is possible that we, due to our bad (or even good) experiences in life project a distorted image of man onto God and call this image God. If we cannot discern which spirit we might be of and feel therefore insecure, we ought to trust mature Christians who could help us see whether we are wrong or not.
