How can we measure spiritual growth? The most common answer is an increase in Bible knowledge. This is why we are pushed to spend more time studying our Bibles.

Measuring or determining spiritual growth / health, occurs on the battle field of application.
Leaders must find ways that bridge the gap from the first century writing of God’s word into the twenty-first century life. The task is not easy.
