1 Corinthians 3

Rebecca Lightfoot

1Corinthians3:10-15 Paul is telling the church in Corinth the core reasons that they are not maturing as Followers of Christ; why they do not have hearts/minds/lives that are experiencing KNOWING GOD in their everyday lives; why they lack the discernment necessary to protect their hearts/minds/lives from the entanglements of untruths & deception.These people have been “going to church” and having their ears tickled by “good feeling spiritual stuff”,and are satisfied with the lack of challenging themselves to seek a deeper understanding of God’s Word(1Cor3:1-2 “Brothers,I could not address you as spiritual people,but as people of the flesh,as infants in Christ.I fed you milk,not solid food,for you were not ready for it.And now you are not ready.”-Hebrews5:12-14 says the same thing this way-“For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant.But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.”)The people Paul is addressing are not having their lives freshened and matured/grown/nourished by the breathing in and out of the Holy Spirit and the MEAT of God’s Word.They may be “going to Church;attending Sunday School and Bible Studies & small groups”,but they are not seeking to understand the life&heart&mind lessons that God’s Heart is yearning to have them apply in their lives....for their own GOOD!God’s desire as our Father is to have us grow up and mature as His sons & daughters... It grieves HIS heart for us to remain as infants,to never know the blessings of maturity->a maturing Faith that blesses us with the discernment & wisdom to see and know God’s Presence in & around our life,for our own GOOD. The picture in these verses is one of a physically full grown son or daughter that is still wearing a diaper and still nursing and unaware of the blessings outside their baby crib->the wonder of God’s Expressions of Love that only a maturing person can know!Thinking of this picture,it is no wonder that the people in Corinth had been caught up in the challenges Paul is about to address in the next chapters of 1Corinthians!They were still “infants” in grown up bodies that lacked the discernment & wisdom that The Lord yearns for them to they could know and follow TRUTH,which is God’s Expression of HIS Awesome Love,& HIS Loving Guidance/HIS Ways of protecting HIS children as they grow up.Dear Lord,make me aware of the places in my life that I am still “wearing diapers”.And give me a desire for “meat” verses being satisfied with “milk” in these areas...may Your Spirit help me and lead me to mature in all parts of my heart/mind/life,according to Your Word/Your Truth!
