The factors for Self Growth.

1 Corinthians 13:10 But when that which is perfect comes, then that which is in part shall be done away.
13:11 – When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
13:12 – For now, we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
As a Christian, you need to grow in grace.. 1 Peter 2:18
As a person who desires to make heaven, you need to grow in an act that will add value to your personality, not to boost yourself, but for God’s glory through Christ Jesus.
2 Peter 5 1:8 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
14: – Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
15: – Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
16: – From, him, the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
This growth must be a positive and fruitful one. Not for you to grow from worse to bad, rather, from good to the best. You need to upgrade, don’t downgrade.
