Transforming God

‘You need someone to teach you again the first lessons of God’s message.’Hebrews 5:12

God loves us just as we are, but He also takes us on a journey of transformation. He wants to help us become more like Jesus and become mature in our faith. He wants to help us develop. Over the next few days, we’re going to be looking at the different areas of our lives that need development. Firstly, we need to develop spiritually. Paul said to the early church: ‘I have a lot more to say…but it is hard to get it across to you since you’ve picked up the bad habit of not listening. By this time you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet here I find you need someone to sit down with you and go over the basics on God again, starting from square one – baby’s milk, when you should have been on solid food long ago!’ (v.11-13 MSG). Sometimes we can be like those Christians in the early church. We stop listening and stick with what we already know, rather than developing and growing. That might be because we’re too busy, we’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious, or we’re just comfortable with how things are. But there’s always more to learn about God. We’ll never know everything about Him. Newborn babies desire milk, but when they grow up they move on to solid foods. We need to move on to more advanced spiritual food too. We can end up only being spiritually fed at church on a Sunday morning. But then we question why our faith isn’t strong, why we’re struggling to deal with temptation, or why we can’t seem to feel God’s presence and guidance in our lives. We need to be continually feeding on God’s Word. Each day we should be reading our Bible’s and spending time with Him.  Take time to pray this week.

2 King 15-16, Acts 10:24-48
