Grow Up From Being a Baby In Christ

Baby In Christ

Baby In Christ


There are many ways we can waste time that keep us from fulfilling God’s will in our lives.  There is one way that seems to be a time trap for many Christians so I thought I would write this article to keep you from falling prey to it because it’s not easy to notice.  It happens to many Christians as they draw close to God.

Sometimes people can get off track with God at the same time they’re centering upon Him and doing His will.  As we get closer to God through the Word, it can magnify behaviors that we never realized were unscriptural.  I’m not speaking about obvious mistakes or behaviors, but subtle things like worrying or talking about others in a way that can be mean-spirited.  Biblically all we need to do is ask for God to forgive us, repent and change our behavior.  But some Christians take this action in a direction that leads them away from God.

Think Like God

There are some behaviors many people grow up with that seem natural and harmless, but they’re not scriptural.  This doesn’t make Christians bad people when the Word highlights these unGodly characteristics.  It’s a natural process of Christianity that the closer we get to God, the farther we get from old behaviors, but some Christians can’t forget.  Instead of being thankful, they waste time feeling badly about their old natures and become sin conscious.

The only way to move forward from old behaviors is to think like God, and we do that by following Romans 12:2.  Ask Him to forgive you and then wipe those behaviors from your thinking.  God forgives your sins as if they never were so you must do the same.  All Christians have to remember that we are all born into sin, but through salvation we are born again in Christ.  This makes us a “baby in Christ” needing to grow in the Word just as we had to grow from being a baby in the things of world, to walk, eat, read, etc (1 Corinthians 14:20). 

We all come from different background so your progress with God may be slower than some Christians and faster than others.  This means that you need to keep your eyes focused upon your relationship with God and not on someone else’s.  Most certainly be influenced by someone who is already living God’s Word to help you grow in Christ, but never waste time feeling badly that you aren’t spiritually where they are.  All the time you waste feeling badly could have been used to thank and praise God for where He has brought you today.

Transformation: The Path To Christian Maturity!

We grow up in Christ to become fully mature Christians by following Christian mind renewal.  If you’re serious about connecting with God to serve Him and to receive all your blessings, then you must become transformed. Christian transformation opens your life to all of God’s blessings and great empowerment. 

This process is the only way to gain momentum with God to become mature in Christ!  Are you ready?  Seek help at your local church.  I’ve also written everything you need to begin the process and grow in it daily with acclerated results. I remained a “baby in Christ” until I learned how to follow Romans 12:2.  I kept a journal on my progress and put it into an eBook.  Click here to learn what that information can do for your growth in Christ.
