Topic: From Milk To Bones
Personal Daily Confession:
I confess today, I am moving higher and getting stronger by day. I will never allow any limitation over my life because Jesus is working in all situations. He is changing my life and fine-tuning it with breakthroughs and testimonies. All challenges are becoming a stepping stone to greatness because the one who began a good work in me will surely bring it to completion in Jesus name. Amen!
Memorise: For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. – Hebrews 5:12
Read: Hebrews 5:12-14 (KJV)
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
The Christians life is in stages. A baby Christian first feeds on milk – the soft word of God.
This is when he/she has just become born again and is being introduced to the ways of God.
After this new believer has been taking milk for a while, it is expected that he/she begins to crush bones.
That is when a believer can take in deeper things of the word of God without being confused.
At this stage of crushing bones, he/she can also begin to feed some new converts with milk.
There is time to be a regular member of your church and there is a time to join the workforce.
There is also a time at which you must also start raising disciples for God. In your Christian walk, you should never remain on the same level, you must keep growing.
Since you got born again, how many souls have you won for Christ?
If you have been born again for some years now and you have only been getting fed, not feeding others and helping them grow spiritually, then you need a revival.
Jesus’ mandate for all Christians is clearly stated in Matthew 28:19:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
God’s desire is that every disciple grows to the level of raising other disciples for Him. Paul told Timothy:

If you have been a Christian for long and you have not started raising disciples for God, what are you waiting for?
Jesus has given us the mandate and He expects us to be faithful to it. Don’t disappoint Him.
Are you growing in the things of the Kingdom? How many souls have you won for Christ since you became born again?
I worship and adore You, my Father, for Your ways are not our ways, as the heaven is far from the earth, so are Your ways far from the ways of men.
Father, please, connect me with my divine helpers, and, give me the grace to always be at the right place at the right time, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Father, empower me by Your grace to seek You and Your kingdom, first, and as I do, let all other things that I need in life, be added unto me, in Jesus’ name.
