Because Protestant Christians are sensitive about issues on salvation by grace through faith, they tend to become discriminating in measuring one's development in terms of Christian maturity or “progress”. Protestants have encouraged Christian education not only through Sunday schools but also through showing their support through higher education institutions. Nonetheless, we observe that Protestants are relatively unenthusiastic about a concrete plan that would promote spiritual growth. Generally, there are several different forms of vocations that Christians may adopt and they may adopt these artfully by incorporating skill, taste, aesthetics, and other such measures in various aspects of their Christian life.

Keywords:   Protestant Christians, Christian maturity, progress, artful adoption, vocation
