“As newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word that you may grow thereby” (I Peter 2:2). Growth in Christ is somewhat like a wagon wheel. We have many aspects of our faith that we must nurture to give us strength.

Just as the spokes on a wagon wheel go from the rim to the hub to give it strength, so also are Christian traits in our life to give us strength. If the spokes on any wheel are missing, then the wheel is weak and will break under a heavy load. Let me share with you six traits that will give you a balanced, growing testimony for Christ. These are not necessarily in order of priority, but all six attached to the hub (Christ) will make the sin (our Christian life) stronger as we roll along.
