Day 20~Grow Up
We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
In case you haven’t noticed, you have matured a lot since you were born. Right when you were born, you couldn’t walk or talk or even feed yourself. Now we can talk and walk and eat and do a whole lot more! We have in reality, grown up. But how do we measure up spiritually? After we become Christians do we simply use God as a “get out of hell free” card? Or do we desire to grow in Him every day? One sign of growth is how we respond to sin. “Infant” Christians get as close to sin as they can, but a true sign of maturity avoids sin like the plague. Now, I do know that we do mess up–hello, we ARE human! No one can EVER be perfect, and I have to remind myself of this all the time! But we all mess up, so we have to pick ourselves up and move forward. And guess what…we have the BEST instructional book in how to grow up as Christians–the Bible! Dig into its precious words today!
