Who I Am.

Martin King Jr said ‘I may not yet be the man I should be, or with God’s help the man I someday will be – but thank God I’m not the man I used to be.’ In our Christian life are we on a plateau or are we climbing the heavenly hill? Is there holy growth in our lives? 1 Corinthians verse 26 asks ‘Brothers, think of what you were when you were called? before we were called we were dead in our trespasses of sin.

Then God did a wonderful work in our lives. We were saved of our sin, but there needs to be growth in our Christian lives. As the apostle Paul tells us in the first book of Corinthians, we should not remain feeding on milk but on solid food. It is easy to get in a spiritual rut and think we’re ok. .We can rest on our laurels. But we are battling against the powers of darkness, against this world, the flesh and the devil. We need as much strength as we can get. As Christian found in Pilgrims Progress, life is a struggle to get to the heavenly city.
