First Colony Church of Christ

Raising Saints

Ronnie continues with Paul's admonition of the "fighting" that was occurring in the early church in Corinth. In this section he talks about spiritual maturity. "I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it." Spiritual maturity comes when you accept relational and functional responsibility in your church. It also comes when we know what areas in our life need work and when we are willing to work on them. He asks us to pray regularly for the church and attach high value to every person in the church and to accept personal responsibility for the health of this church.
