Time To Grow Up

Time to Grow Up




Time to Grow Up

Time to grow up
From boy to man
Girl to woman
Weaned from the milk
Going for the meat
From being spoon-fed
To feeding yourself
Finding your feet
Getting married
Having babies
Babies in Christ
Whom you nurture
To grow up too
Learning to walk
Learning to talk
Learning to run
Learning to fight
Learning to pray
And fellowship
And read the word
Study the Word
Sharing with others
Caring for others
Praying for others
Carrying others
Teaching others
Reaching others
Feeding others
Preparing others
Crying for others
Seeking His face
Growing in grace
In the Race of Grace



1 Corinthians 3
On Divisions in the Church
1Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men? 4For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men?
5What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. 6I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. 7So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. 9For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building.
10By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. 11For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. 14If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. 15If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
16Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? 17If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
1Cor.3:1-17

Truly, we are not to have a form of godliness yet walk in the flesh,
we are to walk in the spirit, having the form of Christ within us.
So this well expresses! Well done. Blessings.
