Our heavenly Father wants us to grow up (2 Peter 3:18, Heb 5:11-14, 1 Cor 3:1-3). Mature believers are able to discern between good and evil and are not tossed around by the winds of false doctrine (Rom 10:17, 1 Tim 4:1, 2 Tim 4:1-4). Mature children also bear fruit (Ps 1:1-3, John 15:1-5, Gal 5:22-23).
Especially in these crazy days before the Lord returns for His Bride, the clarion call to the Church is, “Watch! Be ready. Look up. And grow up.”
