Baby Christians

Many Christians are like my grandbaby, Emma.  Emma mostly drinks milk.  She cries when she doesn't get her way.  She screams if she is mad.  She really only cares about herself and her needs.  She isn't aware of right and wrong yet.

We are studying Hebrews in Bible Study.  I love this verse ~

For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the work of righteousness:  for he is a baby.  But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 
Hebrews 5:13,14

We need to know God's word!  Study it.  Meditate on it.  Know it.  It is protection for us, especially from false teachers.

Our Bible study teacher said that her husband was on a train and heard this man witnessing to this old lady.  The man said, "Jesus died on a cross to save thousands of sheep from being slaughtered.  That is why we must all be vegan!"  {Oh, wow!}

The old woman reached into her handbag, pulled out her Bible, and asked him, "Can you please show me where it says that in this book?" 

We must know God's Word so well that we will immediately know false teachings and be able to distinguish good from evil  There is a lot of evil out there.  As I have grown in the wisdom and the knowledge of God, I am much more aware of what pleases Him and what does not.

His ways are so good.  I encourage you to spend time with Him daily.  Read His Word.  It is life...abundant life!

Grow up into Him in all things.
Ephesians 4:15
