Grow Up!

posted Jul 7, 2012, 7:46 AM by Beautiful Zion

    Physical age does not define spiritual maturity.   Many people have been in church for years and are still unable to grasp the elementary principles of the Bible.  Spiritual maturity is obtained by spending some quality time studying, praying, and meditating on the Word of God.  Paul was addressing the issue of growing up spiritually.  “For though about this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God;  and you have come to need milk and solid food”.  It is unsatisfactory to remain a baby in spiritual matters. Some Christians due to their lack of understanding and interest, the message of Jesus and Christian living is void.  God needs for us to move from milk to solid food so we will be able to spread the message to others.  He needs us to grow up so we would not be carried away by false doctrine, able to discern good and evil, and try the spirit by the spirit.  This cannot be accomplished if we are still on milk.  It is time to grow and experience God on a different level.
