You Can Reach Maturity in Christ!

Posted in Gems

Please DON'T switch out! You CAN do it - truly!! You probably have lots of time to - so let's get going on HOW!! 1 CORINTHIANS 3:2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able.

The Corithians still weren't able! SO LET'S GET ABLE!! You DON'T really want to stay forever as a spiritual baby or as a little kid, right! There's ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO!! As a genuine Christian you want to grow up: to get OFF baby food, and on to SOLID FOOD!! Wow, that thought excites me!! In my generation someone who had truly reached Spiritual and Scriptural maturity we called a Man or Woman of God (about the highest 'accolade' that could be paid to any Christian!!)

There are at least TWO THINGS needed for you to reach Maturity in Christ: the FIRST is to know HOW to do this!!! - something no one ever told me, that's for sure, but I continue to give to you here ALL THE TRUTHS THAT I KNOW!!! The SECOND is a total COMMITMENT and serious DETEMINATION to be entirely THE LORD'S!!!

But please DO realise that: a) God has a LOT of work to do IN YOU before you will reach that state, and b) it takes a LOT of time, of learning how to live the Scriptural way,and of just pure life-lessons (which I tend to refer to as "water under the bridge" i.e., there's no short-cut to LIFE EXPERIENCE!!) c) And the Holy Spirit will be working to help you to reach that point. It took me 42 years, but via seriously taking in the Messages and Scripture truth on this thread, I can see NO reason why it should take YOU that long!!

Much love (and how's about getting started today!!! *heavenly grin!*)
