I was reading in Hebrews today. These verses really convicted me.
'There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don’t seem to listen. You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.'
Hebrews 5:11-14 NLT
How many of us are still on the milk? Many people have been "Christians" their whole life and still don't know what the "word," says. I was one of them. I knew God or at least thought I did. I was on the milk almost 20 years because I NEVER read the bible. A few years ago I wanted to really pick up my cross and follow Jesus. It wasn't until I decided to pick up my cross that I actually started to grow. It wasn't until I started reading the Bible, Praying, Living for Christ that I really started to understand.
We won't grow until we start taking steps. If you are in a Slump if you are in a Rut, the best way to get out of that Rut is to move! If you don't move you won't ever get the momentum to get out of it. You will just sit there and stay there. We hold our self back, by getting lazy and comfortable.
If we look at it in this perspective for a minute. If we sat on the couch day after day not wanting to get off the couch what would happen? Nothing! Except our house would get dirty. Dishes would pile up, dirt would be on the floors, the laundry would pile up. If only we would get up do the dishes, sweep the floor, and do our laundry our house would be clean. It is work but it teaches us responsibility. It is similar to being a Christian, we need to work. I am not meaning we must work to be saved I am meaning to grow to mature to have growth spiritually.
This was what was on my heart today.
God Bless you all <3
