The terms “spiritual growth or maturity” are often used relative to spiritual matters. Since our Born Again spirits have already been perfected or matured, it is actually our souls that need to grow to line up with our spirits, a life-long process of renewing our minds to God’s Word and promises.
“If you don’t understand that spiritual reality can’t be felt, then you’ll be confused when God’s Word declares that you have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead (Eph. 1:18-20), Andrew Wommack wrote, adding:
“If you think truth can be discerned through your natural senses, then you’ll be baffled when the Bible says that you’re a brand-new creature who can do the same miraculous works that Jesus did (2 Cor. 5:17 and John 14:12).
“Without understanding spirit, soul, and body, you’ll search your body and soul in bewilderment wondering, ‘Where is it? I don’t really have that kind of power in me. The Bible is so hard to understand!’ If you can’t see, taste, hear, smell, or touch what the Word reveals about you, you’ll immediately be thrown into conflict. This apparent disparity between your experience and God’s Word will cause you to throw up your hands in frustration and conclude, ‘It must not be true!’”
