Somewhat Childish 

APRIL 24 & 25, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

1 Corinthians 13:11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Imagine with me for a minute, you walk into a room and in the center of that room you see someone playing with Barbie dolls and having a pretend tea party with an imaginary friend. In the next room, you see someone playing with GI Joe army men and plastic tanks and you hear them going, “boom, boom,” pretending to blow up a cereal box fortress. Sounds like a couple of children having a blast. However, what if I told you the people playing in the rooms were 45 years old and this is all they ever do? You would probably think, Oh, how sad, they must have grown up physically but never grown up psychologically.

    Now think on the life of today’s so-called mature Christians. Are they still playing with their childish ways? Some people do not want to grow up spiritually. They received salvation and said that is enough for me. However, this is not enough. There is so much more as we grow in the Lord. We should be going to church at every opportunity to learn more and more about Our Christian Walk, Jesus, God, The Holy Spirit, Evangelism, Soul Winning, Bible Study, Teaching Others, Serving God, Worship, and this is the small list. If you have all those mastered, then you are doing great. However, if you are like me, I learn more and more every day. As we look at people who have been saved for 20 and 30 years who have not grown, what should we be saying? That is OK, that is their choice in life. Or, oh how sad, they never grew up spiritually. Immature Christians are missing so much more of what God has to offer.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Psalm 119:18 says, “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” I pray this almost every time I open the pages of God’s Word. You know what? If I am genuinely looking for Him to show me something, He does open my spiritual eyes and teaches me something new wonderful!

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
