Theme: Grow Up

Topic: No More a Servant

Scripture Reading:
Matthew 17:14-21; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Ephesians 4:10-16

Main Text:
Galatians 4:1-2
1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
2 But is under  tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

Spiritual growth qualifies us to handle  bigger spiritual responsibilities.  Physical growth  involves developing requisite  skills  and  acquiring  equipment,  technology  and resources to handle  greater assignments. The  Word of God stipulates that one has to grow in order to handle responsibilities.

Until an heir grows up, he  or she  is a servant under tutors and governors (Galatians 4:1-3). Those  who refuse  to grow are  not only denied greater  responsibilities but are servants under the tyranny of oppressors. This explains why we see many believers around who are the servants of unbelievers and demons.

As believers, we are heirs of the Father - joint heirs with Christ Jesus (Romans 8:17). Nonetheless, we cannot take our place of glory if we refuse to grow. Believers who refuse to grow, though heirs God, will remain servants of demons, unbelievers, and false teachers and prophets. We must grow and help others to grow. Jesus Christ encouraged the apostle Peter to stand, and directed him that after he had stood, he should help the other apostles to stand as well (Luke 22:31-32). We must do likewise.

Prayer:
1. Pray for yourself that you'll receive grace from God to grow from being a student in your area of living into a trainer in that area.
2. Pray also for the strength and  wisdom to disciple others in Christ.
