When we are born again, we are born as \u201cbabies in Christ\u201d in order for us to grow up and lay aside our old nature we need to be fed constantly by the Word of God. As babies mature we no longer crave the \u201cmilk\u201d of God\u2019s Word but as we come of age we are able to feed ourselves with \u201csolid food\u201d. We birth babies who can only take \u201cmilk\u201d and teach until adulthood when they can eat the \u201cmeat\u201d of God\u2019s Word, feed themselves, and reproduce their own families.
We are no longer immature (I Corinthians 3:1-3).
We are mature believers able to discern \u201cgood\u201d and \u201cevil\u201d. (Hebrews 5:12-14)
We are doers of the Word not hearers only. (James 1:22)
In the beginning we need good parents/ teachers until we are able to understand and teach
others. Are we being good parents to our children we have birthed in Christ (James 3:1)? In
order for new believers to grow up we must train them in how to study and apply God\u2019s Word to
The Word of God is without error given directly by God through His Holy Spirit to men (II Peter 1:20-21). The Word of God is living and powerful able to penetrate and change our hearts and minds with God\u2019s truth for our lives (Hebrews 4:12). There is no written revelation from God after the Bible (Kitabs) Revelation 22:18-19
Those who meditate on God\u2019s Word will produce fruits of righteousness resulting in
peace from God and man. (Psalm 1:2-3, Romans 6:21-22, James 3:17-18) God\u2019s Word is living
and active with the power to convict and change our lives through personal application.
Every time we read God\u2019s Word He is trying to teach us Truth to deliver us from the
bondage of sin (John 8:31-32), continue to help us \u201cgrow-up\u201d spiritually (I Peter 2:1-3,
Hebrews 5:12-14), and showing us how we can follow Him more closely and obediently so we
are disciples (doers of the Word- James 1:22-23) so we are able to \u201cmake disciples\u201d teaching
them to observe (obey) all things I have commanded you (Matthew 28:20) bearing fruit for His
kingdom and glory (Matthew 6:33, John 15:5).
