Session 22

Check-up

Read: 1 Peter 2:2

Every year, we take our children to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor assesses their health by measuring their height and weight, and asking questions about their physical and social development. Can they ride a bike? Do they tie their shoes? What are they learning at school? We anticipate incremental changes in their height, weight, strength, social and physical skills. These changes are an indicator of health.

God expects to see change in His children, too. 1 Peter 2:2 says, “Rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” A Christ follower is expected to change continually and that change takes place as we feed on God's truth, the Bible. As we apply God's word we grow and see our behavior change. Giving, serving and sharing Christ are examples of the change that takes place as we grow.

 

Are we changing as we follow Jesus? Are we changing to become less focused on ourselves and more focused on others? Are we concerned about serving people as Jesus did? Let's give ourselves a check-up. We should see change in our lives, because growing people change.
