2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever, Amen”.
As children head back to school, they may notice certain classmates that grew several inches over the summer. They experienced a “growth spirt”, they grew faster than others at an exponential rate. Interestingly, a lot of growth happens at night during sleep. Secretions of human growth hormone peak throughout the night. In fact, it is recommended that children ages 6-13 sleep at least 11 hours a night.
REST CAUSES GROWTH! The more we rest, the more we grow. In what? Grace. And what else? In 2 Peter 3:18 it mentions another important component to growing in grace…the knowledge of our Lord Jesus. We grow in grace when we receive more knowledge. Not just any knowledge, but knowledge of Jesus. If you want more growth, study more about Jesus. Jesus is full of grace and truth. Get ready though, when you grow in your knowledge of Jesus, you will experience a “grace growth spirt”! Others will take notice that there’s something awesome happening in your life. You’re standing taller, you’re more confident, and happier, and at peace and rest. Grow! Grow! Grow!
