WE HAVE AN IMPERATIVE COMMAND:

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

PERPETUAL OR ETERNAL BABYHOOD…

From LIVING WITH JESUS TODAY by Juan Carlos Orte

We have a phenomenon in the church today which I call “ETERNAL BABYHOOD OF THE BELIEVER.”

We have members of our churches who after years of hearing messages are just the same.

They continually need a minister to keep after them , changing their diapers, putting talcum on them and

Checking that their milk isn’t too hot.

The church seems more like a hospital than an ARMY.

Sometimes we fool ourselves because we grow numerically. We think that this is growth.

But to grow numerically is not necessarily spiritual growth.

CEMENTERIES ALSO GROW NUMERICALLY …

To have 100 people without love, then 200 people without love and service is JUST TO GET FAT.

*WHAT IS GROWTH?

*WHAT IS SUCCESS?

*HOW DO WE MEASURE SUCCESS?

*DO WE HONESTLY EVALUATE OUR IMPROVEMENT?
