How can you find spiritual parents?
In an episode of A Life You Love, host Renee Evans and guest Bethany Hicks talk about spiritual parenting. A spiritual parent is the one who’ll help you grow in your spiritual life. They can be a spiritual leader, a church pastor, or anyone in your circle that you can see yourself learning from .
Bethany shared how well-known Christian leaders Bill Johnson and Heidi Baker became her spiritual parents though she never talked to them before. It’s because Bethany allowed herself to learn from their teachings and messages.
“Bill Johnson and Heidi Baker have mothered and fathered me even though I have maybe barely spoken two words to either of them in my life. How did they do that? Well, I think it’s connected to alignment. Like I’ve really aligned myself with their teachings, with their messages, the revelations that they’ve grown in.”
Be planted in a church
If you are also someone who’s looking for spiritual parents, look around you and find people you connect with. Look for leaders or people more spiritually mature than you that can guide you in your Christian walk.
“Who are the leaders in your life? Who are those that you are looking at?”
Also, be active in your local church. We are promised in Psalm 92 that “those who are planted in a church will flourish” in His Kingdom.
“When you plant yourself in a local church, you surround yourself with generations and you surround yourself with mothers and fathers… The generation that’s gone before us, knows how to serve. If you’re looking for a mom and dad, go serve in your local church.”
