Spiritual Growth Quotes

Spiritual Growth
There is no delusion so damaging to the spiritual growth of the seeker as the idea that infinity is something to be sought, and somehow to be gained… Infinity is a concept of finite mind, to get at something which it is not, and finiteness is a necessity for realization of infinity … Fear is infinite, just as love is finite. Hate is infinite, as is a lie or a surrender of a soul to the immoral or the base, but divinity is finite, definite, that is. Finite means limited, infinite indicates a lack of delimitation…. – Marc Edmund Jones

Is growing to decay. – George Macdonald, Within and Without

There are no shortcuts to holiness. There is no easy way to conquer the flesh. Christian character is a matter of growth, not of secrets or formulas. Growth takes time. It also takes the discipline of prayer, of study, of heart searching, of sensitivity to the Holy Ghost’s pleading, and of consistent obedience. It must always begin with a renewed thankfulness for the never-ending grace of God, and a sense of being set free repeatedly to a life of holiness. – John White
