Grow Up!

Reading from the Book of Hebrews 5:12-14, 6:11
Hebrews 6:11 We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized.

It is so easy to begin something, but it takes great courage to finish! At the beginning of a new thing, we get all excited and usually have a lot of support to do it. But when our emotions wear off and all that is left is hard work and the need for extreme patience, we find out what it takes to truly succeed.

Hebrews 5:12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

Do adults drink milk from a bottle or eat only baby food? Of course not! Likewise, as a Christians, we need to be diligent in studying the Bible so we will understand it and be able to apply it to our everyday life. In this way we will grow in our faith and move from spiritual "milk" to spiritual "meat".

In essence we call this "growing up". It is time to "Grow up!"

Father God, Thank You for weaning me from the "milk" and feeding me the "meat" of Your Word. Thank You for the wisdom & knowledge I have diligently seeked.
