A lot of Christians will remain babies because they refuse to grow from the elementary stage of Christianity. There’s nothing as terrible as understanding what to do not being able to do it.
Change is difficult for people because they’ve not set their minds to understand the elements of change placed before them. The words you heard that made another man change, did not profit you because you didn’t mix them with faith (Hebrews 4:2).
People go to Church all the time, but are not growing; they still remain the same people as you’ve always known. What then is the proof of their Christianity?
The Church ought to change you. As you hear the Word, it should bring transformation to your life.
When Jesus commissioned Peter to oversee the Church, He requested that His sheep and lambs be fed (John 21:15-17). Anything that is properly fed should grow. So, in other words, the purpose of the Church is to ensure that the people grow progressively in the Spirit and become more like Christ.
