BABY FOOD . . .
Have you tasted baby food? Well, I have and it's terribly bland. However, babies have no choice without teeth. They certainly cannot eat a nice juicy steak!
Unfortunately, some Christians are content with spiritual baby food. They are happy to go over and over the simple truths of the Scriptures and don't progress beyond what you can consider the basics of the gospel . By not advancing on further to deeper truths and more difficult Bible passages, they lack biblical understanding and convictions to make right choices (Heb.5:13). They may have been Christians for many years, but their spiritual abilities remain underdeveloped. They simply remain babies.
As children grow physically, they learn to eat solid food that supplies them with strength and vitality. In the same way, every believer needs to take on the responsibility to feed themselves on solid spiritual food. To fail to do this is to remain spiritually weak and undernourished.
It is possible for you to tell the physical age of people by how they look on the outside. Their spiritual age is revealed by their ability to distinguish good from evil and by their personal character that's shown day by day. Is this spiritual discernment evident in your life? Or are you still on spiritual baby food? In order to handle the Word of truth it takes diligence and care. So the wise thing to do is to take the time to study it and then that truth declare. Apply yourself to the Scriptures and the Scriptures to yourself.
