It is fine to be youthful at heart, but as believers, you and I are likely to be growing. The phrase teaches that it should be apparent to everyone who interacts with us that we are maturing in our love for God as well as for each other. Ephesians 4:15 reads, “…speaking the truth in love, we’re to grow up in every way into Him who’s the head, into Christ.”
But growth isn’t about compelling maturity either and bearing down. That strategy fails every time. The good news is that the prescription for development will be to spend some time with Jesus, in prayer as well as in His Word. Hang out with Jesus and you’ll be transformed and ever growing, as well as the first person surprised by the change will probably be the one doing the changing.
