Growing Mature in Christ

Incomparable Christ

Hebrews 5: 11-14

2 Peter 3: 18

God intends for Christians to grow in spiritual MATURITY

Our HEARING is Dull – v. 11

Our DEVELOPMENT is Stunted – v. 12a

  • Spiritual growth is ultimately the RESPONSIBILITY of each individual Christian
  • As a result of spiritual LAZINESS many Christians remain infants in their faith

Our Discernment is IMMATURE – v. 14

  • Maturity is the GOAL
    • Maturity in Christ is seen when we can make INSTANT moral and theological judgments about our circumstance because we know the Word of God intuitively.
    • Psalm 119: 9-16
  • SENSITIVITY is a must
    • GROWING Christians are sensitive to sin and know right from wrong

Main point: we must steadily pursue MATURITY in Christ by regularly DIGESTING the truths of God’s Word
