Scripture Quote: My friends, you are acting like the people of this world. That's why I could not speak to you as spiritual people. You are like babies as far as your faith in Christ is concerned. (1 Corinthians 3:1 NIV)
Pew warmers make the preaching of the gospel a difficult thing - Attendees have some faith, but the constant worldly influence in their lives make them out of touch with their spirituality and the message their pastor labors over. It is a shame that some of our brethren forget to continue learning about God and instead of being leaders to others, remain only able to understand the plainest truths. It is a good thing to become a babe in Christ, but not always to continue in that childish state.
Through prayer and study, each of us can grow up to become mature in understanding the Gospel message. The deeper mysteries of our faith belong to those who have studied God's truth and who are open to continually learn more. It is by accepting Christ’s salvation that we begin to develop a sensitivity to the sweetness of spiritual awareness - Then through the Holy Spirit, we begin to recognize that which is pleasing to our Lord. Choose to become fit before your God, an instrument prepared and capable for His divine use.
Today’s meditation: Pursue growth in godliness and then share it.
Memory Verse: Let the wonderful kindness and the understanding that come from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ help you to keep on growing. Praise Jesus now and forever! Amen. (2 Peter 3:18 NIV)
