1 Corinthians 13:11 “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things”.
…From yesterday…
Galatians 4:1 “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;”
Galatians 4:2 “But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.”
Galatians 4:3 “Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:”
The danger in remaining a Nepios is that you will never be able to enjoy the full benefit of your inheritance in Christ. There are basic things reserved for Nepios which we’ve all enjoyed, but the greater things and blessings are reserved strictly for the Huios.
In the same way, I know you will not sit your 1year old son down to start discussing the economic situation in your country with him neither will you start telling him how you’ve been managing your income and how he should understand that there might be no food for sometime in the house.
Doing that will amount to a waste of precious time and resources. His cry for food alone will nearly run you mad. He simply cannot comprehend what you’re saying. No matter how much you love your Nepios, you wont hand him the key to your new car.
The same thing applies in our dealings with God. There are several things we are believing God for but which he wont give to us simply because we have refused to grow up in that area.
The interesting thing about the Christian journey is that we can be Huios in some areas and Nepios in others. There are Christians that believe that God can heal but don’t believe He can make a man prosperous.
I’ve seen believers and pastors who can preach the word of God with fire but who know nothing about showing compassion and loving others. They are Huios in preaching but Nepios in demonstration of love.
To be continued…
