Self Centered Baby Christians
Most Christian believers never grow up to spiritual maturity. They perish as spiritual babies. Most believers are SPIRITUAL BABIES because they are self centered. Everything is about themselves. They want Jesus to do everything for them, they want to be nursed, they want to be cherished. They want to be taken care of, everything is about themselves.
The kingdom of God is not about you and me, it is about Jesus Christ. It is about denying ourselves, picking up our cross and following Jesus It is about going after Jesus, about seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness and then all the other things will be added unto us. People want to feel loved, they want to feel appreciated, they want a pat on the shoulder all the time, they want to be encouraged, they want to feel loved. Jesus SHOWED HIS LOVE for you and me on Calvary, He DIED, He gave His life for us, He PROVED it. The only way we can prove our love for Him is to DIE TO SELF and to LIVE FOR HIM, to grow up and to be spiritually mature, to get up on our feet, pick up our cross and go after Him, testify for Him, live for Him.
Get rid of your sins, get rid of your pet demons, those good friends of yours that have been with you all your life, those things that you loved more than Jesus. KICK THEM OUT and get serious. People say:”I cannot stop sinning.” They don't WANT to stop sinning, they LOVE their sin. They love their demons, they don't love Jesus. They want Jesus to come and kick the demons out and pat them on the back every day.
If you want eternal life you have to GROW UP, pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ. GO AFTER HIM, PRAISE Him, testify for Him. Stop moaning, stop whining, stop complaining and crying and being a spiritual cry baby. Grow up, get serious about Jesus Christ, thank Him, praise Him, give Him glory because He is worthy. We have nothing to cry about. We must just thank and praise Jesus every day because He is God, He is Lord. He has been looking after you and me all our lives while we have been busy with OURSELVES.
Grow up, dear friend and follow Jesus, become mature in Him or else you will perish as a spiritual baby.
May Jesus bless you.
