My birthday is coming up soon! I can’t wait. My theme will be zebra all the way, from the inside and outside of the cake to the decor. I can look back on all the themes to my birthdays and see how much I’ve matured over the years.
Similar to a regular birthday, a spiritual birthday is the day you got saved, which means asking Jesus into your heart to save you from sin and hell. You might be like me, where you don’t remember the exact date of your spiritual birthday, but remember the circumstances vividly. Or you could be smart and have written the date down 😉. No matter the case, we should be able, just like with real birthdays, to look back on the times and see that we have matured. We should be no longer learning the basics and crawling or toddling in the spiritual sense, we should be running the race for Christ! I can tell that I have grown spiritually in how I use words, because I am conscious of how they sound to other people now. I also have grown in that I am not really envious of others any more. I am grateful for what I have instead of constantly being dissatisfied!
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 statute of the fulness of Christ: that we henceforth be no more children… Ephesians 4:13-14a
As always, thank you for reading! Please comment and tell me when your birthday is! Do you ever have a theme? How old were you when you accepted Christ? Can you tell how you have matured since then? Hope to hear from you! -BibleBloggerGirl
