Spiritual Maturity

I got into a conversation with a friend of mine the other day regarding some spiritual issues. As we were talking, I started to realize the information I was giving was a massive amount of stuff they weren’t getting. Three fours of the stuff I said was going over their head. As we were talking, I realized this person had just accepted Christ a little less than a year ago.

Here’s a few ways concepts to grasp to help new believers in the faith.

  • Relate How Spiritual Maturity starts with a foundation and then works into a deeper understanding. The writer of Hebrews tells us to, “Stop going over the same old ground again and again, always teaching those first lessons about Christ. Let us go on instead to other things and become mature in our understanding, as strong Christians ought to be.” If you need to reiterate a point, do it. Go over something until the person understands. However, don’t be afraid to push to the next level. When you push though, be careful on going to far.
  • Spiritual maturity is a process that takes time. Paul says in Corinthians, “Dear brothers, I have been talking to you as though you were still just babies in the Christian life, who are not following the Lord, but your own desires; I cannot talk to you as I would to healthy Christians, who are filled with the Spirit. I have had to feed you with milk and not with solid food, because you couldn’t digest anything stronger.” Young Christians are going to act like little kids in the faith, let them. Understand that in the faith, a new believer is thinking like a child about God. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, staying a child is. Learn from new believers, their awe of the Lord is amazing.
  • Spiritual Maturity involves putting away childish things. Speaking of staying a child, Paul says, “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.” Letting a person young in the faith stay a child is dangerous. Help each other “put away” childish things. Become men and woman mature in the faith.

A relationship with Christ is a beautiful blessing. Relationships take time and work. Work at the relationship you have with the Lord. Grow daily with the King.

How are you maturing?
