Going from diapers to being house broken is not an easy transition. We’ve all been there, both in our childhood and in our spiritual infancy. But why stay there? Let’s be honest: because it’s easier! It takes effort to learn a new way of doing things, doesn’t it?
God wants each of us to graduate from milk to solid food (1 Cor. 3:1-2). Only then can we begin to grow and mature according to His wonderful purpose for our life. We begin with a commitment to pursue Him–no matter how much inconvenience it may cause–because only in truly communing with Jesus will we ever be able to hear from Him. Only spending quality time with Him will we ever experience substance in our relationship with Him.
So, diapers or disciples, which will it be? Let’s ask Dad to help us make this critical transition.
