"Solid Food" Faith

1 Peter 2:2, Hebrews 5:11-14, growing up in our faith
Infants can survive on milk alone. It's easy on their young digestive systems, providing calcium to fuse the gaps in their skulls and strengthen their bones.

But there comes a time when milk is not enough. Solids must be added to their diet so their digestive system can mature and operate as God designed.

We immediately recognize a problem if a toddler never progresses beyond the bottle.

Unfortunately, we don't always recognize this problem when it's spiritual.

We all need the pure spiritual milk of the Gospel to provide a "skeleton" for our beliefs (1 Peter 2:2), but we must move on to solid foods to build muscles of faith (Hebrews 5:11-14).

Eating solid food means:

1. Studying Scripture ourselves instead of letting others tell us what it says (2 Timothy 2:15).

2. Applying Scriptural principles to our lives in relevant, practical ways. "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power." 1 Corinthians 4:20
