Rebellious Child

As we grow in our life as a Christian, it occurs to me that like our human development, that we need to see the phases that we will grow through to reach a life of holiness. We start as a babe it is all wondrous special and overwhelming. We stare with wide eyes at so many elements of our new walk with Christ. As we start to mature it is important to add mature Christians to our daily life to keep us in line and therefore on the correct path. Ephesians 5 talks about the things that come into our days that we need to push away from us. We are to pursue peace and holiness in our lives. It is paramount that see that pursuing peace is easier than pursuing holiness. We try to justify our actions in pursuit of holiness. Though I believe that God forgives He also demands growth in our walk and relationship with Him. We need to avoid the things of sin in our daily life: course talk, filthy language, immoral subjects. We need a no tolerance policy to these things that displease God.
Thank you Lord for the persons you place in my daily life to remind me of the changing of my ways. Thank you Lord for the blessings of your wonderous presence in my life.
