Why do Christians struggle so much?
Sometimes, we Christians are like babies. We need to be bottle-fed. That’s okay if you’re a babe in Christ. My word, how long are you supposed to be a babe? The milk of the Word of God is wonderful. The meat may be hard to digest, even hard to swallow at times. Yet, our strength is determined by our time spent in His Word and prayer. Going to church collectively is great, but can you have church when no one else is there?
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” (1 Corinthians 13:11)
Is it possible we haven’t grown spiritually because we haven’t let go of some things from our childhood? If you desire to grow, let it go. Don’t remain a babe in Christ because you haven’t gotten past your childhood.
“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead…” (Philippians 3:13 AMP)
