Hebrews 5:14
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Strong meat belongs to those who are of full age. Are you ready? The Church will always have babies, but, those babies need to grow up and get off the basic milk of the Word of God. There are Christians in the Church worldwide that have been in church all their lives, yet they are still just sucking on the bottle of the Word. Christians it’s time for you to grow up! God does not want you to stay a baby. God wants you to grow up and expand His Kingdom. If all you do is just hang out and be a baby then you will always need attention and caring for. God expects His people to get into the Word of God and begin to eat like a mature Christian. I think it’s funny when a so-called mature Christian acts like a baby. They begin to kick and scream and want it their way all the time. They talk like their mature, but in reality they are just old babies!

Look at the baby Christians today. Many of them are passing the mature Christians because they are hearing the Word of God and they are taking it in like a sponge. These babies are growing up quickly! Why? Because they are hungry. They are not making excuses about this person said this and that person said this. They are not saying… “This is the way we always do it.” You can see with this statement many so-called mature Christians would say that statement. Why? Because the so-called mature Christians like to live in the box or live in religion or some mans philosophy. The babies are the ones coming up with new ideas and they are reading their Bibles and they are willing to go. Mature Christians can be like stubborn mules. Try to make a stubborn mule drink! It’s difficult! You would be better off washing a cat!

I remember one time when I was child, I got hurt playing soccer and I remember my dad telling me that I needed to get up and shake it off. He told me to be a man. Well I did not like that statement, but it is so true. Many times the devil or even people try to knock me down but I must get up and shake it off because I am a mature Christian. It doesn’t matter if your just Joe Shmoe or even the Pastor. Attacks are going to come and as mature Christians we need to go to our Bible and read and pray and stand tall.

Listen God wants us to grow up and eat well. I am not talking about natural food. I am talking about spiritual food. God desires us to have a relationship where we talk to him and listen. God does not want us to coo like a child, rather He wants us to talk to Him like strong mature Christians. He wants to build something in each one of you. God wants the best for His children. He wants you to mature in His Word, in Prayer, in loving Him, in loving others and He wants you to mature so that you will further His Kingdom. Babies always have to be changed and cleaned up. Adults can take care of the themselves and help others. Babies can’t talk, but adults can. Babies have to throw fits to get attention, but adults just need to ask. The true sign of a mature Christian is someone who is continually exercising the Word of God. Someone who is willing to push forward and someone who is willing to give their all. Babies always need someone. Mature Christians only need God! So what are you? Are you still a baby or are you a mature Christian? If you have failed, which all people do, get back on your feet and don’t give up. Mature Christians never say, “I give up!” Get yourself up and stop letting the devil beat you down. Stand up, ask for forgiveness for acting like a baby and press forward. You can do it! God is still on His throne and He has not left you or forsaken you!

You are God’s great creation and you have power. You have dominion and strength. You have peace and joy. You have faith, the God kind of faith, the kind of faith that moves mountains.Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. You are righteous through Christ Jesus.  1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: You are holy because He is holy.1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

 

Be Blessed!
