Christian life is a serious business, because itâ€™s a God business. As I walk and study the words of God, I came into a question, Until such time will we be fed like babies? As a baby Christian it only means that you are always affected when thereâ€™s somebody talking beyond what you like. Babies normally donâ€™t want to be corrected even they are wrong, because babies want to do what they only want. Babies normally ask milk and when they did not get the milk, they will surely cry out loud to be noticed by their parents. So until when do a Christian should be like babies?
I believed that Christians should not stay as a baby for a long time, Christian need to grow and start eating hard food in order to grow. We can grow as a Christian by being active on searching and learning about the words of our Lord through the Basic Instruction Before Living Earth ( BIBLE)
Baby drinks milk and adults need to eat hard food since they need strength in facing the works that an adult Christian needs to do.
1Cr 3:1-4 Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly–mere infants in Christ.I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?. For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men?
We need to be corrected when we are wrong. We just need to do it in a proper way and in a proper time. Always do things with Love to our brothers and sisters.
I am not saying that we forget the basics.. No.. We need to practice or do in action the basics. Practice what we learn and for sure You will reap with joy.
You are the only one who could answer the question above. So will you stay like a baby or start your journey of becoming an adult Christian. It is your choice, and it is your free will.
