Everybody knows that children are supposed to grow up, right? Unfortunately, many people never do. They may exist in a mature body, but they still think and act like children. The same is true spiritually. When we are born again, we begin the Christian life as a babe in Christ, but we are meant to grow up. Unfortunately, many who have been in the church for decades, never have. They’re stuck in spiritual childhood or adolescents.
In Ephesians 4, the Apostle Paul tells us, that if we belong to Jesus, “…we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” Spiritual maturity is a characteristic of a healthy Christ follower and is one of the marks of a healthy church.
Listen in as we continue our series in the book of Ephesians.
