Growing Up-Wednesday Word

“And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 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;” 
-1 Corinthians 3:1-2 (NKJV)

The only way to grow spiritually is through Bible study. Christians as a whole today have gotten away from true, Christ centered Bible study. We enjoy fellowship, praise and worship, and overall just coming together as brothers and sisters in Christ. While all these are necessary to our walk, none of these provide the nourishment we need to grow. Only the Word of God can do that.

Above is a picture of me and my daughter, Lillian. She is just over a week old. They tell me that she will grow up one day, but right now I just want her to stay like this, although I know that is not the case. She will grow up whether I want her to or not. It is only a matter of time.

Our spiritual growth does not work the same way, however. A person ca be save for decades and never grow. It is a matter of dedication, prayer, and Bible study. Only with the proper spiritual nourishment can we grow spiritually.

Don’t miss out on God’s best because you are not ready to understand the deeper things of God. Immerse yourself in the sound teaching of God’s Word. Remove the influences that hinder your spiritual growth!
