SMS Message - ONE OF THE SIGNS THAT STAND TRUE CHRISTIANS OUT IS TO GROW IN CHRIST AND DECREASE IN SELF 2CORINTHIANS 5:16-17. ON WHICH OF THESE SCALES DO YOU WEIGH MOST - CHRIST OR SELF? CHECK IT. THE BIBLE RECOGNIZED THE NEED FOR CHRISTIANS TO GROW IN CHRIST. THAT IS WHY IT TALKS ABOUT BABES AND THOSE WHO ARE FULL OF AGE IN CHRIST HEBREWS 5:12-14. THE SIGN OF GROWTH IN CHRIST DOES NOT REST ON NATURAL AGE ALONE WHICH IS THE REASON WHY DAVID SAYS IN PSALMS 8:2 THAT GOD CAN ORDAIN STRENGTH THROUGH BABES AND INFANTS THAT HE MAY SILENCE THE ENEMY AND THE AVENGER. GROWING IN CHRIST AND GROWING IN THE FLESH ARE TWO PARALLEL LINES THAT CANNOT MEET. IT IS EITHER ONE IS INCREASING OR THE OTHER IS DECREASING. LET US CHECK OURSELVES, WHICH SIGN IS MORE PRONOUNCED IN OUR LIVES AS CHRISTIANS? - THE SIGN OF A GROWING CHRISTIAN OR THE SIGN OF A GROWING NATURAL MAN OR WOMAN. THE TWO ARE NOT THE SAME. THE NEW NATURE WE RECEIVED AT THE NEW BIRTH IN CHRIST SHOULD NOT BE HIDDEN IF WE MUST GROW IN CHRIST. LET US THEREFORE DETERMINE TO REDUCE THE REMAINING ELEMENTS OF THE OLD NATURE AND GROW DAILY IN THE NEW NATURE.
