Newborns can bring great joy. It is easy to see a room light up when the baby arrives. As much joy that the infant can bring, watching him or her grow from infancy, to toddler, to teen; and seeing that young person mature into a healthy individual is extremely rewarding.
On another note, it is so wonderful to see people come to faith in Christ. Jesus said that the angels rejoice in heaven over everyone and anyone who turns to the Lord and repents. Spiritual babes in Christ can be such a joy to be around.
In the same way, as much joy as a spiritual baby can bring, watching him or her mature to become a spiritually healthy, passionate follower of Jesus is also very rewarding.
Peter said in his first epistle, “Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” (1 Peter 2:2-3)
My prayer is that each of us would mature and grow up as passionate followers of Jesus. This takes place one day at a time, one step at a time; in other words everyday.
It is helpful to have good resources to help us grow in faith everyday. So in this brief blog, I’d like to point you one such resource; www.everydayfaith.ca is a web site with great links, materials and instructions on how to grow in faith everyday. By encouraging you to read, pray, give and share everyday this resource helps you mature in your walk with Jesus.
