So just when I start my Corinthians posts, my husband starts teaching this book in a class each week. I get even more study!
I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?
1 Corinthians 3:2-3
We are to be spiritual as Christians. We need to grow, molding ourselves to the example of Christ as we study. Shedding self. We can’t do that without digging into the Word.
If we look the same as those in the world, we do not show Christ in our lives. We cannot reflect someone we don’t know. We know Christ by reading His words, following His example, leaving behind what doesn’t fit His will.
I survived on milk for years. I see a huge difference in my walk now. I make different decisions, I have a different mindset.
The Word has changed me.
Heavenly Father, thank you for being patient with me as I strive to shed self and put on Christ. Thank you over and over for His perfect example. I pray that I can lead others to You. Amen.
