Christians must move from the milk of the Gospel to the solid food so we can understand right from wrong...
Did you know there's a serious literacy problem in the Church?
I'm not talking about ability to read and write. I'm talking about our knowledge of God's Word.
Lifeway research found 55% of regular church attendees do not read their Bible more than once a week, 40% admitting they don't read it more than once or twice a month.
"Choose whichever statistic or survey you like, the general pattern is the same. America’s Christians know less and less about the Bible."(1)
When we first discover the goodness of Christ, we should crave pure spiritual milk so we can grow (1 Peter 2:2).
Then there comes a time to feed on "solid food" (deeper Scriptural truths). If we don't move forward, we remain worldly and focus more on teachers than Scripture (1 Corinthians 3:1-4). Only solid food allows us to progress so we can distinguish right from wrong.
And we never lose our daily need for Bible nourishment. So let's ask God if there are ways we can improve our spiritual nutrition!
