Spiritual Maturity

From 1 Peter 2:2-3:  “Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.”

Infancy of man’s faith

Absent righteous skills

Fed with Word’s nourishment

Holy Spirit fills

 

Grappling divine lessons

Bread of Life above

Christ breathes as Living Word

Grace imparts with love

 

Learning faith’s elements

Son of Man preaches

One parable each time

Our Lord’s Word teaches

 

Practicing what is learned

Holy design’s growth

Faith in Word progresses

Maturity’s oath

 

Accepting Word’s goodness

Darkness now ignored

Righteous living obeys

Mercy comes on board

From Hebrews 5:13-14:  “For everyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is unskilled in the word of righteousness.  But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.”
