2. Personal accountability from a small group leader, spiritual mentor or trusted friend.
If you are NOT growing spiritually, then you are probably lacking personal time in God’s word, and/or you do not have sufficient accountability in your life. A spiritual leader, mentor or friend can hold you accountable to deal ruthlessly with sin and help you stay committed to your spiritual disciplines/goals. If you want to grow in anything, it takes time, hard work, and accountability. And if you really want to excel, I would encourage personal coaching/training.
