Do you remember when you were younger and couldn’t wait to grow up and be an adult? Funny thing about that… if you’re reading this now, that actually happened. And you didn’t even have to work for it. There might have been some “growing pains” along the way, but eventually you reached your full height and stature without even trying.
In Colossians 2, Paul lets us know that spiritual growth and maturity don’t just happen. We don’t wake up one day fully developed as followers of Jesus Christ.
Today we kicked off a brand new series called “You’ve Got Mail”. We all love to get personal mail. In fact, if you go to the mail box and find a personal letter, it’s the first thing you’ll open. We love personal mail for a variety of reasons, but I think there are two main reasons.. 1) It’s actually for us personally & 2) It’s almost always from someone we know and care about.
What I find interesting (even in my own personal life) is how anxious we are to read personal mail, but how often we’ll ignore some of the most important personal mail we will ever hold in our hands..
