Dear Watermark Church family,
“I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.” 1 John 2:13
When the apostle John wrote the book of First John, He wrote to emphasize the characteristics of a true Christian. John did this to expose those people who were teaching false doctrine and behaving very unlike Christ.
In the verse above, John recognizes that there are stages of spiritual growth and maturity for true believers in Christ. For example, spiritual children need basic teaching and training as young believers. Young men (and women) in Christ have a good grasp on the Word of God and can stand firm against false teaching and the attacks of the devil. Spiritual Fathers have a deep walk with God and can train others in the path to maturity.
As a member of God’s family, you are precious to God and are loved by Him no matter what level of spiritual maturity you are at. However, God desires that you continue to grow to the next level of maturity, for His glory and your joy.
Are you growing in your walk with Christ, or remaining a child? Join us this Sunday at Watermark Church, and we will take an inventory of where we each are spiritually, and we will look at how to experience constant growth in our walk with Christ.
This Sunday is Hawaiian Shirt Sunday at Watermark Church, in honor of Rick and Cathy Shook. They have recently retired and will be taking their RV around the country next month. Rick has a colorful array of shirts, and if you happen to have a Hawaiian shirt to wear, it will remind the Shooks this Sunday that they are loved!
