Mature in Christ

Mature in Christ

2 Peter 3:18 (KJV) But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

God did not want His spiritual best for us just to let us sit and rot on this wicked earth.  No, God desires, beyond spiritual regeneration, that each saved soul matures in His Spirit.  In other words, a saved soul is not just to become a pew warmer and willy nilly walker once saved. God expects every available boot on the ground to sow seeds for the salvation of lost souls.  Come on, friends, you and I have much work to do to bring honor and glory to God.

Spiritual wisdom and development in Christ require every regenerated person to read and study God’s Word.  Doing so will produce an intimate working knowledge of the truths of God by moving from milk to meat of His Word.  However, it is never enough to know about Christ. The application of His truth into our life is crucial.   Obedience to the things of Christ will become natural in the new life of every sincere child of God.  Whereas, when a person is born into this world, darkness rules and reigns in his soul apart from sweet fellowship with God until the salvation of a soul.

God has expectations for every person born into this corrupt world.  Becoming a member of His spiritual family includes opportunities to share His gospel message with others God brings into our lives, such as acquaintances, family members, neighbors, co-workers, and even strangers nearby.  Maturity in Christ is essential for carrying out God’s specific plans for your life.
