The True Test Of Maturity – David Okoye

Share this story:
maturity is not measured by age

“For
you are still [unspiritual, having the nature] of the flesh [under the
control of ordinary impulses
]. For as long as [there are] envying and
jealousy and wrangling and factions among you, are you not unspiritual
and of the flesh, behaving yourselves after a human standard and like
mere (unchanged) men?” 1 Corinthians 3:3 (AMP)

The quality of self
caution cannot be over emphasized in the house of the Lord. 

Many times
as we grow in the Lord and in our interaction with the world, if one is
not careful he begins to reduce his God given standards in this process
of interaction. The first time I came across this scripture, I had to
examine myself thoroughly.

Being spiritual is beyond speaking in
tongues and winning souls for Christ. The criterion for spirituality is
not in the ability to manifest the presence and power of God. Being
spiritual is maturity. Maturity is your ability to respond like God
would.

Imagine how hurting and saddening it was for Apostle Paul,
to tell the church at Corinthians that they were yet carnal. How do you
think God sees you? The scripture says to judge ourselves that we will
not be judged (1 Corinthians 11:31). How do you see those in the
household of faith with you? Our opening verse tells us that when our
heart can accommodate envying, strife, jealousy, wrangling and divisions
amongst ourselves, we are yet carnal. And a carnal mind cannot receive
anything from the Lord (it’s in enmity with God)

Be the believer
that God prides in, the one he knows at every time will follow peace
with all men and holiness. Never feel anyone in the house of God is your
enemy. We have a common enemy which is the devil, and he is constantly
devising means to ensure we are not unified in purpose; he knows that a
united front, nothing can defeat and a divided house cannot stand. 

Be
wiser than the devil. Let love and patience have her perfect work in
you, that you may be thoroughly furnished unto every good work.

DECLARATION
I follow peace with all men and holiness. I grow above envying, strife,
jealousy and anything contrary to the will of God for my life.
