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.
