Getting Stuck in Spiritual Infancy

Getting Stuck in Spiritual Infancy

Your heavenly Father's goal is for you is to mature and develop the characteristics of Jesus Christ, living a life of love and humble service. Sadly, millions of Christians grow older but never grow up. 

They're stuck in perpetual spiritual infancy, remaining in diapers and booties. The reason is because they never intended to grow. Spiritual growth is not automatic; it takes an intentional commitment. You must want to grow, decide to grow, make an effort to grow, and persist in growing. 

Discipleship is the process of becoming like Christ, and it always begins with a decision: "'Come, be my disciple,' Jesus said to him. So Matthew got up and followed him." (Matthew 9:9 NLT)

When the first disciples chose to follow Jesus, they didn't understand all the implications of their decision. They simply responded to Jesus' invitation. 

That's all you need to get started: decide to become a disciple.

Ephesians 4:15
Matthew 9:9
