Daily Prayer Line (7:00 – 7:15 a.m.) – 605.562.0020 x324-346-203
“Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
It's time to grow up! If you came across someone in their thirties and they acted like children, you would be concerned. You first statement would be "You need to grow up!" Paul chided the Corinthians about their lack of growth (1 Corinthians 3:1-2). He could not give them the things that they needed to grow (meat) because they were still immature in their Christian walk. Some of us are spiritual midgets when God is ready for us to be spiritual giants. It's time to grow. It's ok to accept correction. It's ok to work with others. Stop falling for everything. God is in need of mature saints ready to take the world for Christ. Are you ready?
Most Gracious and Heavenly Father, I apologize for allowing life to stunt my growth. I'm determined to grow stronger in you by taking time to read your Word; spending more time in prayer; and taking time to invest in ministry. Lead me to leaders that are willing to train me, correct me, and build me up. Help not to fall for anything and help me to continue to trust in you. I understand that to much is given, much is required. So in advance, thank you Lord for taking me higher in you. I'm ready! In Jesus Name, Amen.
