Inspirational Quotes from Famous People

The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one.
M. Scott Peck quotes (American psychiatrist and Author, 1936-2005)

Many people say, 'I don't have to go to church to be a Christian,' without considering fellowship in relation to their continued spiritual growth. In the New Testament coming together is emphasized. Over and over we find the passages saying to love one another, encourage one another and comfort each other.
Kelly Sloan quotes

Our mothers are racked with the pains of our physical birth; we ourselves suffer the longer pains of our spiritual growth.
--Mary Antin Russian, Activist Quotes

Spiritual Growth and the Bible

God promises to stay involved through the life-long process of spiritual growth. "And I am sure that God who began the good work within you will keep right on helping you grow in His grace until His task within you is finally finished on that day when Jesus Christ returns." Philippians 1:6, TLB.

Jesus is the source of spiritual growth. "And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust Him, too, for each day's problems; live in vital union with Him. Let your roots grow down into Him and draw up nourishment from Him. See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all He has done." Colossians 2:6-7, TLB.5
