Growing Into Adulthood

Download the Audio: bit.ly/aud1960

Hebrews 5:12-14 (KJV)
[12] For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. [13] For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. [14] But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.



When a baby is born, the expected is that he takes milk for some time, be weaned, eat solid food and grow to become a responsible adult. But when a child refuses to be weaned and grow, such a child becomes a source of worry and concern to his parents.

Just like that baby who has refused to grow because he has refused to be weaned, some Christians today are a source of concern to the Church of God and God Himself. They are being fed the word of God but there is nothing in them that shows it; they have refused to grow.

The hallmark of adulthood is responsibility. A man is mature only to the level to which he is responsible. A man who claims to be an adult but shies away from responsibility is still a child.

“Whom shall He teach knowledge, and whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:9-10 KJV).

You have learned and studied the word of God, now is the time to put what you have learned to practice. It is with constant practice that mastery is cultivated and it is by this that you will be able to discern between good and evil and fulfill your destiny.

Go into today knowing that God will only be glorified in you when you bear much fruit. Only adults can bear much fruit, not children.
