WEEK ONE:

"Growing spiritually should make Christians the most loving, patient and gracious people on earth."
WEEK TWO:

"Healthy spiritual lives are marked by a process of spiritual maturity."
"We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but is going on: that is no the end, but it is the road."
(Martin Luther)
To KNOW and OBEY Jesus and TRAIN others to do the same is to grow spiritually towards the great goal of Christlikeness.
As we journey towards growing spiritually, we all find ourselves at different stages of the journey:

* spiritual infants
* spiritual children
* spiritual adolescents
* spiritual adults
* spiritual parents
BIG IDEA:
At the spiritual infancy stage we look and act a lot like physical infants.
>>> Self perception is not always the best determination of spiritual growth.
Paul's language reveals the way in which the Corinthians perceived their level of maturity.


Arrogance can inspire a false sense of maturity
>>> Spiritual Infancy is characterized by specific needs and behavioral patterns.

Milk Vs. Solid food (Basic Vs. Advanced Teaching)


Carnal Vs. Spiritual (Pleasing the flesh Vs. Feeding the spirit)


Self Interest Vs. Interests of Others

(Healthy conversations Vs. Arguments/quarrels)

Human Allegiance Vs. Spiritual Allegiance

(Paul, Apollos are merely servants)
