Good morning everyone,
Today's scripture reading refers to us becoming mature in our Christian walk. Do you find yourself still running through the basics in your understanding, or do you feel you have moved from the comfort zone into an area where you feel that you are growing? In order to grow from infant Christians to mature Christians, we must learn discernment. We must train our conscience, our senses, our mind, and our body to distinguish good from evil. Can you recognize temptation before it traps you? Our Spiritual growth is far more important than other aspect of our walk on this earth! I hear a lot of people say that they never feel as though God has Blessed them with any 'special knowledge'. I beg to differ because each of us has the same opportunity to receive special knowledge which leads to maturity in your Christian walk. Are you doing the basics which leads to growing you up in a way that is pleasing to Him? Are you reading Scripture, spending time with the Father, and attending a church that challenges you through teaching of the Scriptures? The more we get out of our comfort zone (not relying on milk for nourishment), the more Christ can grow in and through us! My challenge for you today is for you to start right where you are and ask God to work with you to change you little by little and whittle away at the old you to make you a new Creation!
Your brother in Christ,
