SO MANY BELIEVERS ACTUALLY THINK THEY ARE MATURE IN THE GOSPEL BECAUSE OF HOW MANY YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN SAVED!
Maturity has nothing to do with the amount of years you have gone to church, been saved, or your natural age.
MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A PRODUCER!
MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A RESTORER!
MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A SUPPORTER!
MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A WORKER!
You once served the King, now you just take and give nothing. You are sliding into Spiritual Alzheimers!
HERE IS ONE PIECE OF EVIDENCE THAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY MATURE IN THE SPIRIT.
Gal. 6:1, Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right andrestore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. AMP
Here is a litmus test for your spiritual maturity.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU RESTORED SOMEONE OR DISCIPLED SOMEONE?
If you are not reaching out and restoring those who are struggling and being entangled again by sin then, YOU ARE NOT MATURE!
If you are not discipling someone. Taking the time to walk them from babyhood to adulthood (maturity), then YOU ARE NOT MATURE!
JESUS NEEDS SOME MATURE SAINTS WHO WILL BUILD HIS KINGDOM.
Find someone this week who is slipping away from the Savior and restore them.
Lead someone to Jesus and then take the responsibility to disciple them. That takes work, commitment and maturity!
