It is time to grow up!

It is time to grow up!

1 Corinthians 13:11 (KJB)   When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Young children are immature by nature.

Adults are expected to grow and mature.

This is true whether you are talking about the natural man or the spiritual man.  Maturity is anticipated and expected to surface in the lives of young adults.

Paul was driving home the point that both the church and professing Christian believers were to mature and grow in their personal relationship with God.  This growth potential Paul echoed again and again in scripture, including in 1st Corinthians 14:21 and 2 Peter 3:18.
