2. Spiritual Education!
13. till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (Eph4:13)
Feeding causes physical growth while education causes mental growth. If someone feeds so well he will grow well physically but if he does not attend any form of education , then he will never grow mentally. He will remain ignorant for life
Believers need to grow and develop their minds spiritually through education in the word of God. Natural education produces natural knowledge but spiritual education through proper teaching of right doctrine produces revelation knowledge.
Jesus said that those who abide in His word shall know the truth… (Jn8:32)! The early saints devoted themselves to the doctrine or teaching of the Anointed Apostles. (Act2:42)
Paul prayed for the Ephesian church that God would give them the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ. (Eph1:15-23).
Being in a right Church under right Pastor who is able to teach will ground you into the word of God, which in turn will cause you to grow into the revelation knowledge of the Son of God and the things of the kingdom of God. Your understanding and perspective about God, life, destiny , and all things will grow. Your attitude and thought life will be lined up with God’s word.
Many children of God struggle with many issues of life because of ignorance. Many Christians are ignorant of what God has accomplished through the death, resurrection and glorification of Christ.
Many children of God are not enjoying the inheritance they have in Christ because they are completely ignorant of it.
Knowledge is key into God’s inheritance for believers in Christ.
