About this session
This session lays some groundwork for the sessions of Profession, Family, and Community Relationships. We all need to grow up, whether we are the youngest believer or a seasoned elder. In the process those in an early and immature walk of faith should feel the freedom of where they currently are in life and be encouraged that the Spirit, over time, completes the faith of those God calls. Those more mature in the faith can be encouraged that God has even more illumination and transformation in store for them. The main point of this session is: Believers are redeemed, but we need to be on a journey of growing up in Christ-likeness in order to serve Christ fruitfully through faith.
