Here is a good article by Kevin DeYoung that is likely to help us in our Christian sanctification. Though the context of the article is in selecting an elder, I don't think that lets the rest of us off the hook. Which are you most like: Mr. Bookworm? Or Mr. Simple-Faith? (both are very sincere believers). What do you think your church tends to produce through her ministry emphasis? Are you seeing your friends in this article? Your spouses? Pastor DeYoung proves here that we all have room to grow as Christians, but not necessarily in the same ways. Personally, I would love to be more like Mr. Simple-Faith without losing Mr. Bookworm. How about you? Do you possess more knowledge than maturity? Or more maturity than knowledge? In any case, we should be growing in both.
". . . but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen." (2 Peter 3:18).
