SPIRITUAL MATURITY


­čöŐDevotional Audio Version ☞ http://bit.ly/2ejayXE

1 John 2:12-13 [NKJV]
I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake. 13 I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.


Dare thought he knew his father when he was a child, but as he grew to become a man, he realized that he didn’t really know his father when he was a child. As an adult, he could now relate to his father on a higher level, and he now could say that he knows his father.

Children do not have the ability to fully know their parents until they have grown to maturity. A baby thinks he knows his daddy, but there is so much about his daddy he cannot know as a baby.

In the first stage of our walk with God, we are little children. We became God’s children because our sins were forgiven through the sacrifice of Jesus.

As we grow in our walk with God, we grow into maturity and grow to know God. Those who have grown to know God are those referred to in today’s Bible text as fathers.

Knowledge of God is not just knowledge about God. Knowledge of God is born from experience of Him and constant fellowship and dealings with him.

The spiritually mature are those who know His voice. They can differentiate it from that of the devil because their senses have been developed. They are now sheep and no more lambs.

Jesus says His sheep knows His voice (see John 10:27), but we see that He also has lambs (John 21:15). Lambs grow to become sheep.

Go into today desiring to know God and grow into spiritual maturity. It is only the mature that can wield his mighty power. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
