Live Light in 25 Words- Day 25. " Growing Up "
"Like newborn babies crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation , now that you have tasted that The Lord is good." 1 Peter 2:2-3 Q. Are you seeking to "grow up in your salvation" or are you staying the same person year to year? Sometimes it can appear easier to stay put, rest in the comfortable and familiar. Growing up can seem a little daunting and the prospect of greater responsibility can be a little scary. But just as in life, if we don't step out and move forwards with our spiritual walk we miss out on all that God has to offer . The more we learn about Him, the more we grow in ourselves. There is so much that He has for us to experience. He knows our true potential and wants us to grow beyond our " baby christian " status. I'm glad I'm not the same person I was last year, God has brought me through some really difficult times. But during it all , the stretching and refining, the " growing up ", he walked with me. That's the wonderful thing about growing up in Christ, we don't have to do it alone, he is there right beside us, through the whole journey, guiding and leading the way. There is no cut off date with God, no miraculous age that signals you have arrived , no limit to our capacity to learn, our journey lasts a life time. Lxx
