The pastor preached about the stage of life in Christianity, that is newborn baby, young Christian, and mature Christian.
A newborn baby need a strong root. He/she also need additional spiritual support. A young Christian develops strong roots and branches. We can grow deep roots as we meditating on God’s Word day after day. A mature Christian begin to produce healthy fruit: fruits that turn our thoughts towards God (Love, Joy, and Peace), fruits that turn our thoughts towards others (Long Suffering, Kindness, and Goodness), and fruits that turn our thoughts towards ourselves (Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control).
In a sentence, the sermon teach us that God wants us to grow up spiritually and be a mature Christian.
Am I a spiritually mature child of God, able to be responsible to Him for every part of my life?
God bless us.
