TOPIC: Are You Still A Baby Christian?
“Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;” – (Galatians 4:1)
READ: 2 Timothy 2:1-4 (KJV)
Open Heaven 20 December 2022 MESSAGE:
We see from our memory verse today that an heir is likened to a servant if that heir is still a child. In the same vein, the devil will toss around a child of God if he or she is not mature. This alone tells you that spiritual maturity is a must for every child of God. There are people who have been born again for 10 years yet God has not healed even a headache through them. How are they to get developed? (1 Peter 2:2) says:
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
The more of God’s word you consume, the more mature you become spiritually. As you keep studying your Bible from day to day, you will be steered by the Spirit in the word of God to do all the other things needed for your spiritual growth. If you spend quality time studying your Bible, you will hate sin; you will fast and pray regularly, love your neighbour as yourself, and many other qualities of mature Christians will be built in you.
Don’t waste the time you should spend building your relationship with God on frivolities. Don’t eat when you should be fasting. Don’t sleep when you should be praying. Don’t spend time on entertainment, when you should be studying your Bible. A woman who does not take responsibility to grow her relationship with God, but wants to marry a God-fearing man, is just wasting her time. A good father will not allow his committed son to marry a wayward lady. Also, if the devil meets you as a baby Christian, that is trouble.(Open Heaven 20 December 2022)
A woman had a dream where a mad man came to her doorstep and started knocking furiously. She opened the door and chased the mad man away, but he stayed there and kept saying, “Leave me alone. Leave me alone. It is your husband I have come to see”. In the dream, the husband came to the door, saw the mad man and allowed him to come into the house. This woman’s husband fell sick and died a few months later. Had the husband been spiritually mature enough, he would have chased that mad man away in the spirit realm. My beloved, don’t leave your spiritual life unattended to; there are terrible consequences for remaining spiritually immature.

The more spiritual exercises you do, the faster you grow spiritually and the more power you have over the devil.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
