1 Cor 3:1-4
So, brothers and sisters, I could not speak to you as spiritual people, but instead as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2 I fed you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready. In fact, you are still not ready, 3 for you are still influenced by the flesh. For since there is still jealousy and dissension among you, are you not influenced by the flesh and behaving like unregenerate people? [NET]

How would you feel if you have a baby that has remained a baby for nine years?

Babies are cute and we love them, but babies have to grow up.

When you were born again, you were literally born a spiritual babe. As you learn the word of God and apply it to your life, you are to grow into the image of Christ. Unfortunately, many Christians have refused to grow spiritually; they are still babes tossed to and from by every wind of doctrine (see Eph 4:14).

As revealed in today’s Bible text, spiritual babes are believers controlled by the flesh. They are controlled by their feelings and circumstances, and not by God’s word.

Spiritual growth is proportional to knowledge growth. The more of God you know, the more you will grow spiritually. Believers who do not give time for the word of God and prayer do not grow spiritually, no matter how long they have believed.

It is only Christians who have grown spiritually that will be able to command God’s mighty power.

In the kingdom of God, growth never ends. Even though you grow out of being a spiritual baby, you never get to a point where you have grown enough to longer need growth.

Go into today determined to grow spiritually by applying your heart more to the word of God and to fellowship with Him.

Ask the Lord to help you grow.
-Pas SD Abraham
