When I was a young reborn Christian in high school, I had not idea what I need to do to keep growing as a Christian. Is going to church every Sunday enough? Can I just read the Bible and grow enough?
As the years went by I wondered what it takes to be considered a mature christian?
What follows shares some ideas on the choices we have to do to be mature:
Mature Choices Immature Choices
Teaching others Just being taught
Developing depth of Understanding Struggling with the basics
Seeking unity Promoting disunity
Desiring spiritual challenges Desiring entertainment
Careful study and observation Opinions and half hearted efforts
Active faith Cautious apathy and doubt fear
Experiences evaluated in God’s Word Experiences evaluated according to feelings
These aren’t the only thoughts. You probably have many more of your own. We need to try to continually grow in our Christian maturity. I am in my 70′s and I seek more knowledge now than I ever dreamed of when I first became a Christian back in high school.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
