Am I a Spiritual Baby?
Hebrews 5:12-13 "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat."
"For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe."
It seems that too many of us Christians remain spiritual babies for most of our lives--needing help instead of becoming a helper.
God should not have to teach me the same lesson twice. I should take a lesson learned, apply it to my life, and then turn around and teach it to others. These verses obviously show us that God is disappointed when we do not mature into spiritual teachers but instead remain as spiritual babes, needing to be helped through every aspect of our lives.
What a great challenge! Thanks, God, for your patience with me...with all of us as Christians!
