My Father’s house has many rooms (John 14:2; NIV).
Grow to maturity (2 Corinthians 13:11; NLT).
Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).
Why is there no room
For spiritual development
In so many of our churches, Lord?
It’s as if we’re all meant to stay
At the same basic stage –
To those in ‘authority’,
Rather than exploring you
This makes us easy to control,
But, sadly, it discourages us
From growing to maturity,
And becoming more like
Your dear Son.
