    Christian Topics & Bible Study-Spiritual Growth 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, Hebrews 5:12, 13, 14



    Not all Christians are on the same spiritual maturity level.

    Some of us need a very simple basic explanation about the things of God, about the basics of our faith. But, others, by using their spiritual senses, have grown to a spiritual maturity, to understand the deeper things of our faith.

    When we become born again from the Holy Spirit, we are like spiritual babies. So we need a spiritual milk. But after that, we decide how much we will grow in the things of God.

    For example, we decide daily how often or how much we will spend time with God in prayer, or how often and how much we will read the Word of God. Those who meditate on the Word of God and read it a lot, will be spiritually growing and being transformed faster. But those of us, who do not read the Word of God often and enough, will still be like spiritual babies in Christ.

    Yes the Holy Spirit in us, makes us grow spiritually, but we also decide how we grow.

    Apostle Paul talks about the two type of spiritual food in 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, Hebrews 5:12, 13, 14

    In Hebrews 5:14, Paul is talking about the Christians, who have become mature, by using their spiritual senses, and have trained themselves.

    Milk and solid food. One for the mature, the other for the babies.

    You see, we will not be able to understand the deeper things of God, if we are fed only the spiritual milk. We decide to mature, by spending time with God in prayer, by reading his Word, by going to church, and then, the close we come to him, the closer He will come to us. That is how we grow.

    Very true. It is important to learn that God has given us a clear map for the growth in spiritual maturity. All those who follow Him in obedience will grow to the level of their choices.
    We have found this map of spiritual maturity to be very helpful. http://bit.ly/2wq4Pu1
