Babes in Christ (1 Corinthians 3:1-8)Tommy Boring, July 28, 2013
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Every family has their own problems and issues. This is because we are humans, being carnal. As long as we live here on this earth we will always be challenged. God will challenge those that are His. He's forever teaching those to grow. Many wear the Christian name tag but are not of Christ. Those people may fool others but you can't fool God for He knows if you've been saved and one of His or not. Those that walk after His Spirit will not fall for the worldly sins and the things of the flesh. The world and God needs mature Christians. Being saved doesn't mean that your path and walk will be easy, in-fact it's the opposite and is a hard battle. Are you allowing God to grow you? Don't let your flesh/mind dictate what your walk will be, pushing God away. Everyday we influence people around us. It's up to a grown-up Christian to teach those that are around us. Are you living committed to God? God's not just concerned about the obvious categorized sins like drugs, alcohol or immoral sex, He's concerned about a Christians witness and growth. Everyday we must decide what we will eat from the table of Christ. Will be grow up and eat the meat or will we continue to drink the milk? God is not a negotiator nor a bargainer. He left His word in black and white and we are responsible for it.

1 Corinthians 3:1-8
1And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 4For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? 5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. (KJV)
