Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God – Hebrews 6:1
There’re three kinds of men the Bible talks about: the old man, the new man, and the spiritual man. The old man is the natural man. The new man is the person who’s born again; his spirit is recreated. However, that new man isn’t all that God’s looking for. He wants the new man to become a spiritual man. Being born again is only the beginning of your journey with the Lord; you have to grow up unto maturity. 1 Peter 2:2 says, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”
This isn’t referring to the growth of your physical muscles, but your spirit. It’s talking about spiritual growth. The one who’s spiritually mature in Christ has a very different lifestyle from the one that’s still a babe in Christ. In fact, they don’t speak the same language. Whereas the latter is easily overwhelmed by circumstances and adversities of life, the former walks in dominion and has life under control.
The Bible says spiritual babes, are in bondage to the elements of this world (Galatians 4:3). No wonder He wants us to grow unto perfection; become a mature man or woman in Christ, not one who’s tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. He wants you to come to the place of perfection, the place of completeness and spiritual maturity. It’s a place of power and glory. It’s a place of joy, peace, fulfillment and success. It’s the place where divinity reigns!
By yielding yourself to the Word, and allowing it gain the dominion in your spirit, soul, and body, you’re catapulted to higher realms of glory. No matter how glorious your present level is, there’s more in God; there’s a greater glory. Therefore, keep growing in, and by, the Word!
