“Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” Psalm 138:8

“He who has begun a good work in you — will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

The right way to grow in grace — is to give up yourself wholly to your heavenly Father, who knows all your needs and has engaged to supply them. Then labor diligently to walk with Christ and carefully nourish the new life — which, be it ever so weak and little now — will increase and gradually grow. May the Lord only give us grace to watch against the opposite extreme, so as never to be lulled into a false rest or a lukewarm spirit — but to be ever diligently and seriously employed in crucifying the flesh and using all the means of grace. Then we need not be troubled as though there was danger lest the work of God should not continue and advance within us.

But this can only be done by living on Jesus, cleaving to Jesus, and growing up into Jesus. As we live upon Christ — we live above self, sin, and the world, and so grow like Him. My soul, fix your eye and your heart on Jesus every day, and all the day, so will you grow in grace and become like Jesus.
