Our growth must be measured. We grow as his work in our hands grows. Our growth must hence be mirrored by the works of him that we see and do. John 5:19, 14:12, 2 cor 3:18.
With the eyes, few are seen, with the heart, much is seen, with the Word and Spirit of God all things are seen.
Eph 5:13, PS 36:9, Eph 1:15-19
