If you think you are a spiritual giant because you have been a Christian for many years, or degrees earned from seminaries, a position in the church, a spiritual gift being exercised, financial contribution, and holy life that you live, think again. You are a spiritual giant only in your eyes because you are comparing yourself with fellow humans. You will feel so small when you compare yourself with Jesus Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith. It is those who have stopped growing spiritually who consider themselves to be giants. A true believer will continue to walk and stumble in this life with an endless war between the flesh and the spirit. While this struggle continues, he is perfected from one stage of glory to another. Finally, when the flesh is put away, he will stand perfect in the presence of our Lord and Savior. That is when he will be crowned a spiritual giant. Until then, like Paul, our heart cry is: I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death (Phi. 3:10).
