Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 1 Corinthians 3:1-3
In Paul’s letter, he tells them that he can see that they are still acting “worldly” – i.e. there is still upset and fighting happening between them. They have yet to attain the attitudes of being spirit-filled. This takes time, prayer, asking God for insight. Things that are as important for us today as it was then for the people Paul was speaking to. Spiritual growth and understanding is how Christians mature in their faith.
Let us pray – Eternal God, thank you for the continued blessings that you bring to us each day. You are indeed The Great Provider in our lives. Please help your children to grow, Lord – to grow in knowledge of You, to grow in understanding Your desires for us , help us to be more and more like You. We pray all this in Your Son’s blessed and wonderful name. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
