<<Today’s spiritual meditation>>: “Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.” (1Co 14:20)
Meditation one: Have you ever examined sincerely about your spiritual life? Have you grown up like an “adult” or are you still staying like a “child”? The characteristics of spiritual infants are childish, ignorant, and immature. They usually create chaos and divisions in the church. They care only about themselves in the church and do things without caring about others. Christ loves the Church, and gives Himself up for it. So Christians should not emphasize their own significances in the place where Christ gives Himself up.
Meditation two: Can Christians believe that once accepting the Lord, their spiritual lives will be mature naturally? Impossible! After believing in the Lord, you have a responsibility to press on under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, until Christ takes shape in your heart. The Bible says: “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” (Heb 5:13, 14)
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please give me the purity as an infant has, but not become as ignorant as a child. Ask You to teach me, in my mind, thoughts, and insights, to live out a life of an “adult” when serve You or get along with people, and let people see my progress. My sincere prayer is in Your name, Amen!
