We all are the heirs of the Lord, because we acquired that inheritance through Him. In this word, it is written that everything belongs to us. Actually, we are going to be blessed.
Speaking about blessings, we must not understand only wealthiness, civilized life, but spiritual and mental blessings as well: the gifts of the spirit, fruitful spiritual ministry, progress of intellectual heights, wisdom, knowledge, the acquisition of genius, etc. However, we will inherit all mentioned things only when we grow up.
The Apostle Paul says: “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” (1 Corinthians 13:11).
We need to put away an infancy, otherwise we will reach nothing, because it is written, that the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all.
Today, many people give the tithe, make donations and hope to enrich themselves, be blessed, but, as we can see, they do not become rich. The reason is that they are still “children”.
You know, no matter how much I love my child; I cannot give him/her a car, because it will become fatal for him/her. Likewise the God, He cannot give the spiritual gifts and various blessings to us, until we grow up.
Dearly beloved, please believe that the infancy will not leave us unless we destroy the infant thoughts, behavior and things like that.
Probably you are at odds with someone or anyone offended you. You do know that children wrangle and fight against each other. Grow up, means to open a cemetery in us and bury in it everything we want to say to our enemies. Forget all offences, answer nothing to your offenders and then you will witness own growing.
Dearly beloved, put away childish things and start receiving such blessings, which you did not get to this day! Amen.
