Growing Children

Growing Children:  As adopted children as we drink from the fountain of living water and feast on His word we should see signs of growth in the following:

[1]  Our likeness to God!   Matt. 5:45,46,48; Eph.5:1.

Eph.5:1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children

[2]  Our childlike confidence in God! Matt.6:25-34.

Matt.6:25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

[3]  Our desire for God’s glory!

Matt.5:16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

[4]  Our spirit of prayer!


[5]  Our love of peace!

Matt.5:9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

[6]  Our forfiving spirit!

Matt.6:14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

[7]  Our Merciful spirit!

Luke 6:35But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

36Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
