What is spiritual multiplication?
It is spiritual parenting that leads to spiritual children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Who do you know right now that you could help as a spiritual parent or as an “older brother” or “older sister” in Christ?
Over the months ahead, as you share your faith you will have your own spiritual children. Sometimes you will “adopt” a child or for a time be a “foster parent.” Over the years, you can have children and grandchildren who live and spiritually reproduce in other cities and perhaps even in other countries. Your Christian life can impact the world!
A strong biblical precedent for multiplication is seen in the four generations of 2 Timothy 2:2: Paul, Timothy, dependable people, and others. Here you see parent, child, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren—spiritual multiplication!
You and many others have heard what I have taught. You
should teach the same thing to some people you can trust.
Then they will be able to teach it to others.
—2 Timothy 2:2 (New Century Version)

(Col.) 2:7 Changed My Life!
I was a “baby” Christian at 41 having been “born again” three years earlier. I was attending a Christian church where a Colossians 2:7 course was about to begin, and I signed up for it. Through that course I began my walk with the Lord. Because of the spiritual disciplines I not only learned how to understand and rightly handle God’s Word, I was given tools I still use today to show others (believers and nonbelievers) how to be an effective Christian in the world and have a life of fulfillment through Christ.
