*Symptoms of Spiritual Childhood.*
*Scripture* : Ephesians 4:14
So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead. Amplified.
Many believers have not come to understand that salvation is free but there is price for maturity in Christ.
You’ve got to pay prices to be matured in Christ.
Many people have given their lives to Christ 10years ago but are still 10 months old in the spirit.
Apostle Paul was lamenting in the above scripture that he had many things to say to the Ephesian Christians but they are dull in their spirit to signal and understand because they are spiritually infants.
Prolonged spiritual infancy is a great disaster to the body of Christ. When I was in higher Institution there was a sister in my Christian fellowship, very consistent in attending fellowship.
I learnt latter that she married a Muslim and became a Muslim. I have had several pieces of information along this line. My conclusion with such case is this, there is a revelation of Christ they have not got before the wind comes.
Every house built will be tested by the wind; Jesus said so( read Matthew 7:24-27)
*Let me share with you symptoms of spiritual childhood;*
Hebrew 5:11-14, Ephesians 5:14-15.
1. A spiritual child is dull in understanding. Chronological age is not equivalent to spiritual maturity.
you can take Ephesians 1:;17-18 as a dose prayerfully to be delivered from spiritual dullness.
2. They feed on milk not solid food. They are not concerned about what concerns God. They want God’s prosperity and advancement but they don’t want to to advance His Kingdom on Earth.
They want God’s health but they are not concerned about many people dieing spiritually; making their way to hell.
They want God’s favor but they don’t favour sinners matching to hell by interceding and preaching to them.
Nigeria is over 200 millions souls, millions of them have no hope of eternity.
Matured sons are inheritors. They know what pains the heart of God and they want to be involved.
God cannot commit something tangible to the hand of a child in the kingdom but sons are inheritors.
Prayer: father, i pray you create a new hunger in me for you. I am ready, bring me up.
