Who gets stuck spiritually?
How do you grow spiritually?
“In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.” – Hebrews 5:12-13
It always amazes me how much time some people spend learning and teaching “the law.” “The law” is holy and just and good BUT the law isn’t Jesus! “The law” led me to Christ BUT the law isn’t Jesus!
If you don’t believe me that is fine but I would challenge you to answer the questions here:
At the point a person gets stuck spiritually they become religious- following a doctrine which becomes a dogma which will NOT create a more Loving being but instead it will alienate them from everyone sooner or later. Even people who think like them will then feel a competitive nature to preach it more or obey the dogma better than others.
This is why Christ came to share the new covenant- a covenant based on Love and Forgiveness from Him that can never be earned and is offered freely to all who believe.
Move away from the milk! Stop being a baby and grow up!
To grow spiritually stop looking at Jesus as a rule book, start looking at everything He did for you and focus on that.
As you focus on what He did and His Love for you, have faith that each moment is a gift from Him and walk in the awareness of that- this is when His great Love will begin to flow through you!
Find a time when you can have a moment of quiet and just breathe. After you take several deep breaths and you feel a bit more relaxed, get back to normal relaxed breathing and:
Breathe in and say:
Breathe out and say:
Practice this way until you realize that your best is filthy rags and ONLY what He has done will create righteousness in you, once there- rest in that! It’s not your doing but His Did!
