As Christians the six essential a Christian for living are;



3.Seperation from the world





Chapter 2

Essential of Spiritual Growth

Growth is very important in anything that will yield.As Farmers want great harvest after plantation so a woman want to see her children grow likewise a business man will love to see his enterprise boom up and bring so much profit. Seeing Growth alone brings joy to the heart. As believers,the supplement needed to aid growth are:

● Salvation from sin- Dead men don't grow,we were dead men till Christ came to be our salvation.This salvation actually costed God
● Sanctification of the believer-The believer needs to be purged of every atom of self and flesh.The secret of growth is unity,if the body isn't united there would not be growth 
● Spirit Baptism-The timid and shy disciples spoke the word of God with boldness after Holy ghost came upon them.
● Saturation with the scriptures- The word of God is just like food for the body, without food growth will be stunted.
● Sonship Faith-Faith in God's Omnipotent power will make believers do extraordinary things and the more believer growth, the more capacity,the more the believers do greater exploit.
● Shalom-When peace is missing growth is stunted
