A new spiritual baby is forgiven, but spiritually ignorant and helpless just like a new born baby. This is where the church family is required to “make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you.” [Matt 28:19 20 AMP] The parents nurture and teach their child everything about life, and the spiritual church family nurtures and teaches all the commands of Christ to their spiritual babiesPhase Two: The Spiritually Immature ChildThe next stage of life for the Christian is the immature, child stage. John describes this group of saints like this, “I write to you, boys (lads), because you have come to know (recognize and be aware) of the Father.” [1 John 2:13 AMP] The toddler through teenage years are times of great change, learning, and development, but they are still years of immaturityThe difference that is experienced by the believer in this phase, compared to the infant stage is stated to be “because you have come to know the Father.” Again John explains it this way, “Here’s how we can be sure that we know God in the right way: Keep his commandments.” [1 John 2:3 (from THE MESSAGE)] Development and school are a part of the toddler to teen years and so it is to be the same in spiritual maturityPeter warns these years are hard spiritually, just like growing up can be challenging.
