Memorable Scripture: Takes time to grow there.

1 Corinthians 3:1
And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.

On the heels of saying, “But we have the mind of Christ,” Paul now tells the Corinthians the struggle with teaching them because of their carnal minds.
The analogy he uses – I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 1 Corinthians 3:2
God wants growth in His people but far too often we act like children and divide the church over the silliest things.
For the Corinthians it was about which teacher was the best – Paul or Apollos.
It’s not about the teachers.
It’s not about the Praise Team.
It’s not about the pastor.
It’s about God!
To have the mind of Christ is to think about God all the time and live to honor Him.
It takes time to grow there; just like it takes time for a baby to get off milk and to eat solid food.
