  • Experience or God’s Revealed Truth?
    We have received…the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. —1 Corinthians 2:12My experience is not what makes redemption real— redemption is reality. Redemption has no real meaning for me until it is worked out through my conscious life. When I am […]
  • Glory to God in the Lowest
    It may be the greatest choral presentation in the history of the world. One nameless angel had the honor of playing the lead, with a veritable angelic multitude behind him. But no tickets were sold, and the show was not announced ahead of time. You might call it the first ever flash mob, and the […]
  • Salvation's Song
    Imagine taking the baby Jesus in your arms on that first Christmas morning. What would you see? How would you respond? On Truth For Life, we’ll put ourselves in Simeon’s shoes when he cradled the Christ child. We’re talking about Salvation’s Song on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!

Spiritual infancy...

From the desk of the pastor:

1 Corinthians 3:1-3a-“But I, brothers, could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, 3 for you are still of the flesh.” ESV

Most people like little babies, especially when the babies are behaving themselves. On the other hand, those same people probably would not like seeing an adult acting like a little baby. There are many people who are not willing to take the responsibility for adulthood, which is a shame.

Do you remember this little jingle…
“I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys ‘R Us kid. There’s a million toys at Toys ‘R Us that I can play with. From bikes to trains to video games at the biggest toy store there is. I don’t wanna grow up cause if I did, I couldn’t be a Toys ‘R Us kid.”

There is nothing wrong with wanting to stay young at heart, but is it right for any individual to deny the truth of adulthood because they prefer the freedom of being a kid?  Would you be embracing the responsibility that is before you?

When Paul was writing his letter to the church at Corinth he was addressing a group of people that were content in their spiritual infancy. This same issue is in many churches even today. Like the Corinthians, many Christians today are content to stay on the milk of the Word not desiring to dig deeper. God’s Word often cuts deep because it reveals all the hidden sins which we so carefully protect.

In a day and age of diminishing Biblical truth and conviction, we must grow beyond spiritual infancy. We need to lay aside the desires of the flesh and embrace the solid food that God’s Word is ready to feed us.  May our appetites for God’s Word grow and replace our “childish” tendencies with God’s truth.
