Challenging Church's Greatest Challenge, Lack of Spiritual Growth

In the year 2000, the famous healing evangelist Reinhard Bonkke came to Lagos, Nigeria, to hold a five-day crusade and in one of the nights of the crusade, an estimated one million people gave their lives to Christ. For a city of 17 million people (meaning 1 out of 17 was won for Christ that day), such a landslide of soul-winning happening in one night should by now (over a decade later) have translated into a phenomenal change with great impact on the city and nation – considering the ideals and power that Christianity boasts of. And with thousands of smaller church gatherings offering altar calls week in week out since then, Lagos and Nigeria should have been much more radically influenced by the message of the Gospel.
To the United States, the nation with arguably the highest number (over 100 million) of self-identified Christians in the world, a 2011 Maximum Faith research by George Barna revealed that a relatively small proportion of this huge number of individuals stick with the process of spiritual growth long enough to become the mature Christ-followers and world changers that they are meant to be. While more than three out of four self-identified Christians (78%) strongly agreed that spirituality is very important to them, only less than one out of every five self-identified Christians (18%) claims to be totally committed to investing in their own spiritual development, and less than four (22%) claims to be dependent on God.

Challenging Church's Greatest Challenge, Lack of Spiritual Growth

  1. 1. Spiritual growth is not for baby Christians alone. The quartet of care, orientation, leading and launch must be ongoing and running in the background for every Christian with further oversight from pastors and spiritual leaders to ensure development and growth in all ramifications and dimensions: inward, outward, upward, downward and onward. The Greatest Problem of the Church is Lack of Spiritual Growth – Reverend George Adegboye HAVE THEIR CONSCIENCE JUDGE A SIN ACT i.e. Genuinely get pricked by their conscience when they fall into a sin act after conversion. 1 OUT OF 10 CONVERTS ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN SERVICE/FELLOWSHIP i.e. have a time of spiritual reflection, fast for kingdom purposes or share their faith with an unbeliever in a week period. 1 OUT OF 8 CONVERTS 3 OUT OF 100 CONVERTS GET BUILT TO A POINT OF MINISTERING TO OTHERS BY THEIR GIFT AND CALLING i.e. devote themselves to God’s will for their lives and commit to serve Him and others. 100 There are so many spiritual babies in and around church that, if not for lack of growth, should have given birth to many more babies from the world. BABIES DON’T MAKE BABIES If Christian conversion has not yielded much, it is simply because the young believer doesn’t get enough care for belonging, orientation for mind renewal, leading by example for emulation and launch for practice. In one of these at least, every church or denomination that finds it difficult having its spiritual babies become mature Christians is failing. SPIRITUAL GROWTH IS NOT AN INSTANT HAPPENING, IT IS A CONTINUAL PROCESS POSITIVE DOMINANT FEELINGS ARE LEFT UN-NURTURED WHILE NEGATIVE FEELINGS ARE LEFT UNCHECKED AND UNINFLUENCED BY THE WORD. “Praise God I am saved” “I am a brand new man” “I won’t go to hell again” “The Struggle is over” etc. Need to be nurtured with revelation knowledge of God’s Word. "Here we go now, this Christian journey” “What do I need to start doing now?” “I will have to behave more carefully” etc. Need to be solved in the young believer’s mind. “Is this all to being a Christian?” “A part of me still wants to sin?” “How will I get those guys off my back?” etc. Need to be addressed, edged out by absolute truth.
