A Spiritual Journey
1 Corinthians 3: 1-4 AMP
Foundations for Living
“However, brothers and sisters, I could not talk to you as to spiritual people, but [only] as to worldly people [dominated by human nature], mere infants [in the new life] in Christ! I fed you with milk, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Even now you are still not ready. You are still worldly [controlled by ordinary impulses, the sinful capacity]. For as long as there are jealousy and strife and discord among you, are you not unspiritual, and are you not walking like ordinary men [unchanged by faith]? For when one of you says, “I am [a disciple] of Paul,” and another, “I am [a disciple] of Apollos,” are you not [proving yourselves unchanged, just] ordinary people?”
I am not a people-pleaser. As a young Christian, I fell into the trap of trying to please everybody. I was up and down emotionally. I never knew if I was coming or going. I would be concerned about "what would people think."
In time we all grow spiritually.
I love to read the Word of God on a daily basis. I enjoy going to church on Sundays. I enjoy going to Mentorship on Wednesdays. I am in the process of growing spiritually. God is patient with me.
I must tell you it hasn't been easy. I am walking in the fruit of the spirit. I read my Bible and pray every day. Again, a process and I feel I am growing spiritually.
I thought about my journey. I hope that you will think about yours. Let the Lord Christ Jesus, show you the way going forward.
I am drawing near to the LORD. Lord, I need You.
Lord, please help me. Holy Spirit comes and helps me I need to draw near to You. I do not want to be a carnal Christian. Holy Spirit renews my mind.
