No more milk!
“I had to feed you with milk, not with solid food, because you weren’t ready for anything stronger. And you still aren’t ready, for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. You are jealous of one another and quarrel with each other. Doesn’t that prove you are controlled by your sinful nature? Aren’t you living like people of the world?”
1 Corinthians 3:2-3 NLT
As Christians we are called to grow in faith and reach spiritual maturity; and this is achieved by feeding more than spiritual milk.
But spiritual maturity is not determined by the number of years that we have been attending the church or for the gifts and talents that we have.
Spiritual maturity is demonstrated by our behavior and when we are firm on the principles taught in the Bible. That is why when our life is still under control of the sinful nature, when we are dominated by jealousy, or when we provoke fights and divisions, we show spiritual immaturity.
Being spiritually mature, mean let our life to be controlled by the Spirit of God, rejoice in the success of others, and to promote peace and unity among those around us.
So, Are you ready to feed with something stronger than milk?
