When is the last time you have considered your progress, or growth, as a believer? According to Phil. 2:12-16, we should be continually growing in Christ-likeness. But what standard should we use to evaluate growth? Maybe you have to ask yourself: Am I even growing?
Adopted from the book What is a Healthy Church Member? by Thabiti Anyabwile, this episode explores the difference between superficial growth and genuine growth.
