Learning To Walk

It Is Written, Ephesians 4:15, God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love, like Christ, in everything.
When a person is a baby in faith, satan likes to target that person. It becomes vital that a person grow in their faith. The Holy Spirit guides, but we must learn to follow.
A lot of people have a hard time understanding that statement. To put it another way, look at a baby anything. Whether human or animal, they are helpless when they are born. Their mothers protect and teach them. When we are baby Christians, the Holy Spirit teaches and protects us.
As we grow, and we slip or fall, the parent is right there to help, just as the Holy Spirit is. The parent does not scold a child that falls while learning to walk. The parent helps the child up, offers encouragement, and keeps watching. The Holy Spirit is the same way. He does not condemn us when we fall, He is there to help us.
 As we learn, we become responsible for what we do. We can practice what we learned to that point, or we go in another direction. There are blessings or consequences, depending on if we follow God, or our own plans.
Here is a comforting thought, Psalms 34:22, the Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
Just as no one or nothing can be a baby forever, you must grow for your own good. Incredible blessings await those who call on the Lord. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
Amen
