“That we should no longer be children…. but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ” Ephesians 4:14-15
As children of God, how can we grow to no longer be children, but to be affirmed?
If we look at little children, most of the time they learn through acting on their own curiosity. But the key is, they must act, not simply study or read about whatever it is that intrigues them.
Same for us as God’s children. If we want to grow in Christ, we must simply live and ACT on the teaching of Christ and the desires of our hearts – that the Spirit of God produces withing us – so that we can learn and grow through experience. So that our knowledge becomes understanding. Because if we study the scripture and learn the teaching, but do not live it – we will have no benefit and no growth from it.
