That's what we are going to talk about today. When one first becomes a Christian and is learning the things of God, we consider them to be Babes in Christ because they are just learning to eat. Just learning to get a taste for things of God.
After time, these Babes in Christ start perking up their ears at a sermon, and start joining in during Sunday school discussions. They are beginning to get a taste of real food.
Hopefully, just as this baby enjoys that first taste of real food, the new Christian enjoys their taste of God and everything that He has in store for them. They seek more, and start joining Bible studies and prayer groups. They surround themselves with other believers and really work towards a lifestyle change. They are now getting solid food.
A spiritually mature Christian is interested in the meat. They don't settle for someone else teaching them. They really dig into the Word, with study helps and tools in hand. They ask questions, they take notes, they memorize. They are getting the full meal deal!
Today's passage discusses fools and naive believers. We have been this route before. Are you a naive believer? Are you still just taking little tastes of baby food, or are you really searching God through Bible Study and Prayer? Look up 1 Peter 2:2 and Hebrews 5:11-14 as you close today's study. Ask God to show you ways that you need to work on your Spiritual Maturity.
