Grow Up, Not Old
Most kids can’t wait to grow up. Me, I’m Peter Pan. Growing up meant growing old. But growing up spiritually is a different deal. “It was he who gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, that is, to build up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God—a mature person, attaining to the measure of Christ’s full stature.” (Eph. 4:11 – 13) You want to live forever, and stay a child at heart? Follow the Leader. Follow Jesus.
