We should eventually and quickly grow out of being confused about whether Christ really is the only way. Our spiritual growth should lead us into an intimate relationship with Christ that defies the scientific evidence, and any doubts others may feed us. Our growth in Christ should ground our Faith, proving that Salvation is in Christ alone. In the same way, our growth in our Faith and knowledge of God should silence any doubts about whether we have truly received Salvation, as we have confessed. Sometimes individuals hear a sermon every week and decide that they have to “get saved” over and over again. This is not God’s plan; it is simple immaturity. When we begin to grow up in our walk with God, we won’t ever doubt our Salvation, and no one will ever be able to convince us otherwise!
Next week we will learn more about why it is so important to grow up out of our state of immaturity in Christ. If you have ever felt like sharing your Faith was a losing battle, that you were being “shown up” and embarrassed for what you believe, next week will be the week to convince you that what you need more than anything else is GROWTH in Christ!
