Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 11th – Be A Mature Christian

(Get Into Spiritual Maturity)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 John 2:12-13
“I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake. I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, because you have known the Father.”

LET’S TALK
“Father” in the opening verse above isn’t referring to a male parent but to those who have attained spiritual maturity in Christ, those who have raised others and have been in the Lord long enough to have the experience of God through the Word.

Through the Holy Spirit, these ones are able to understand and interpret the mind of God on a wide variety of issues and establish His righteousness.

To become a “father” with this level of spiritual maturity, you simply give yourself to the Scriptures in study and meditation, knowing God’s Word and living by it every day.

In 2 Timothy 2:15 AMPC, Paul admonished: “Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.”

Also, Jesus said in John 5:39, “…search the Scriptures….” The Scriptures have the capacity to build and mature you: “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified” (Acts 20:32).

The Word is your life; therefore, yield yourself to the Word to build and nourish you.

The Bible says, “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2).

The Word is the only ingredient that can transform and build our lives on all three levels: spirit, soul, and body.
