Summary: Growing in Christ requires us to feast on the goodness of God.
A Children’s Sermon
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.
Hello everyone! It is wonderful worshipping with you today!
I have some things here in my treasure box to show you today. Oh look at these things … they are wrappers from all sorts of snacks and “junk food.”
Speaking of junk food – did you know some children eat way too much junk food? Do you know what it does to their bodies? That’s right is makes them fat, or sick, or even diseased if they do it too much. We have to be careful how much of this stuff we eat.
They same is true about growing up spiritually too. Sometimes, as Christians, we eat way to much “spiritual junk food.”
> We listen to Bible messages and teachers that are “easy”
> Or we decide we already know truth and refuse to study God’s word
> Or we excuse our actions and rationalize God’s will and Word
Just like there is a lot of different junk food so, there is a lot of spiritual junk food too.
Do you now what the result is? Sure you do … we become spiritually sick … or even spiritually diseased.
The Bible tells us in 2 Peter 3:18 to But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Growth requires obedience, discipline, and sincerely seeking God. Not “junk food.”
Let’s pray together.
