Grow up! Grow up! Grow up!

God wants us to be fully mature, taking on our responsibilities in the Church and speaking the truth faithfully. He wants us to encourage one another and inspire one another to stand up and give our best for our Lord.

The Church grows and matures as every part in the Body of Christ grows and matures.  That?s right, every part. So let?s grow up!

Eph 2:10 
For we are his [God?s] workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained [prepared] that we should walk in them.

Each one of us is God?s workmanship, and His workmanship is first-class. When we accepted Christ He created within us something magnificent, something so glorious and mighty and effectual that?it changed us forever, equipping us to do His most valuable work here upon earth.

We may be in different churches, or perhaps you are not in a church. But we are all in one Body, the Body of Christ.

Rom 12:4-5 
For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office [function]:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

When Christ looks down on us from heaven, what does he see?  He sees the men and women he gave his life for, the ones he called to accept his Lordship and live with him forever.  Forever includes this moment, right now. You don?t have to die to see his glory.

I Peter 4:10-11 
As every man [every man!] hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 
If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 

The gift of God we have within is a powerhouse!  We have everything we need to do the good works God has prepared for us.

So get busy! The harvest is still great, and the laborers are still few. Talk to your leadership about what you can do. Then do it. You will see yourself growing. You will see the Scriptures coming alive right before your eyes!

Do you want to know? You can! Do you want to grow? You will! There?s plenty of room at the table for all of us. The Church, the Body of Christ, will grow and mature as we do ? we are all linked together, we are all one Body.

Just make up your mind and go for it. Grow up!
