You Can't Be Defeated!

The life of a Christian is a growing process.  When we come to God in Christ Jesus as born again Christians, we are babies in Christ. As babies, we are expected to grow to maturity. 1 Peter 2 vs 2, "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby."  It's more than going to church on Sundays, we have make out time to study the Word of God always. As parents, we want our kids to grow, fix their own meals,clean the house, get a job, marry etc. Likewise..God wants us to grow, be like Him and change things if we don't like them. 

To grow in Christ, we must belong to a good Bible teaching church. Ephesians 4 vs 11-13, "And he(God) gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

God wants us to grow, and come to the measure of the stature of the fullness of be completely like Jesus, act like Him and think like Him, talk like Him, etc.
Most Christians don't know what to do when they encounter bad situations.  You are busy crying to God to help you, while God is telling you to grow up.  We can't afford to think that these things don't matter, they do.  Lukewarm Christianity won't work, the world is evil, you gotta know your rights and authority in Christ to be able to stay victorious always because a Christian CANNOT be defeated!
