Why Growth Matters

September 12, 2021 • Zach Weihrauch • 1 Peter 2:9–12

What comes to mind when you hear the word “growth” as it concerns the Christian life? Maybe you think of knowledge and how much someone knows about God, the Bible or theology. Maybe you think of it more in terms of what a person does and how their behavior has been changed during their Christian walk. But as Pastor Zach shows us in 1 Peter 2, neither of these descriptions are at the foundation of Christian growth. While we often think of growth as knowing and doing, Peter encourages us to look at it as being. Our identity and what we believe about ourselves shape us more than any other influence in our lives. In a world that is constantly shouting about who we should be, the Christian’s goal is to grab hold of the voice of God and who he says we should be. As we delve into the concept of Christian growth, Pastor Zach fixes our thoughts on three points to consider: what is Christian growth, why does it matter, and how does it happen?
