A Matter of Spiritual Maturity

From Series: Firm Foundation, Volume 1

1 Corinthians 3:1-9  (ID: 1602)

We hold common expectations about infant growth and development, and the same should be true when it comes to our faith. Paul confronted the Corinthians regarding their spiritual infancy and urged them to weed out persistent sin and live lives that reflected deepening faith. Alistair Begg reminds us that spiritual maturity is not a consequence of the mere passage of time. Sanctification results as we study and apply God’s Word in our lives as enabled by God’s Spirit.

Divisions in the Church

1But I, brothers,1 could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ.
