The Journey with Ron Moore

The Greatest Text Message | Ephesians 4:14 | Devotional

Ephesians 4:14
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.

Recently, one of my daughter’s educators told her class that they were the most immature group that had come through the school in years. So…the whole class had T-shirts made and wore them to the next class gathering. On the back of the T-shirts were the words “Maturity is Overrated.” The educator joined in the fun and bought a shirt.

But when it comes to our spiritual life, maturity is nothing to joke about. Without it, we are in a world of hurt. Check out the passage. A lack of spiritual maturity leaves us as vulnerable as a little baby, as unstable as an anchorless boat on wind driven waves, and gullible to swallow every new doctrine proclaimed by a persuasive writer or speaker.

Spiritual maturity, on the other hand, allows us to stand firm with roots grown deep in scripture and strengthened by stretching experiences gained by following hard after Jesus. Spiritual maturity has nothing to do with how long we’ve been a Christian, but what we’ve been doing as a Christian. God is not impressed by church activities or attendance pins. He’s looking for an anchored soul who will stand for the truth even if they have to stand alone.

For God’s sake, be that man…be that woman!
