Prayer

Maturity

You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food (Hebrews 5:12; NLT).

Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity (Hebrews 6:1; NIV).

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding (Hebrews 6:1; NLT).

Let us press on to know the LORD (Hosea 6:3; ESV).

Lord,
When we cling to
Our elementary teachings
And beliefs,

Keeping them unquestioned
And unchallenged
For too long,

We arrest our spiritual development,
Preventing ourselves
From pressing on

To develop
A more mature relationship
With you.
