Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat (plump) and flourishing (green) – Psalm 92:13-14
In order to grow spiritually, we must be committed to God and then to a church. Television minister’s are okay, but in order to grow spiritually, we must have a spiritual covering; and that’s who God has called through the five fold ministry to govern us spiritually.
Spiritual growth comes by having an anointed minister. Everyone that ministers hasn’t been ordained by God to minister. This is the reason why so many are attending church and are stagnated spiritually because the person’s who ministering hasn’t been called of God; or they aren’t spending enough time in prayer, fasting and reading God’s word.
Sometimes as we get older, we think we can retire, but as we get older, we should be full of wisdom and knowledge of God’s word. We should be strong enough to assist others in their spiritual growth when we have been planted in a church and the minister is anointed. The anointing that is upon the minister trickles down to those who are committed to God and the ministry. With age should come producing of spiritual mature Christians.
