*TEXT: 1 Cor 13:11(MSG)*
_When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good_


There are some comforts of immaturity that we must be ready to leave if we will become mature and manifest sonship. Take decisions that are right but hard. Sit down to evaluate and ponder on your ways. May God enlighten your heart in Jesus name.

Let us notice some basic things in the text above. “When” means there is a cut off for each stage. We must establish this reference point earlier in life and respond accordingly. Jesus at the age of 12 was already moving from childhood to adulthood (Luke 2:42-52 read). He had understanding of purpose, he moved from sense of routine to specificity. Meetings that he used to go to usually now became well defined. He knew what he must get from that meeting and when the meeting had religiously ended, he knew it has not end for him so he waited for three days more denying himself of his comfort, willing to pay the price for the things he had seen to come to pass. Willing to stay alone so that he’ll be made.
It was not mentioned what he ate for those three days but that does not make him to regret his action or bury his head in sorrow when his parents found him. Rather he demonstrated more firmness in his action. This is only found in those who act in understanding and not by feelings. This is manhood indeed.
1 Corinthians 14:20 says’ in understanding be men’’. You will see this understanding being demonstrated in His interactions with teachers of the law. He listened, understood, formed his own opinion base on the standard he has known and picked out gray areas and clarified them in his mind. So, when he asked questions from what he has heard them speak, they became dumb. Though not him but the Spirit of revelation at work in Him. This is real maturity.
He did not engage in unnecessary arguments nor became proud because he was gaining more insight than his teachers. He knew it is the eternal life in Him that was manifesting and it could not be lesser. He only wish they could know that it is not by letter but the life by the Spirit (which is in Him), So, he coped with their ignorance.

He was being taught by those he made. Great Humility indeed. This can only be found in the mature ones. He demonstrated this at the age of 12. Do not forget that Jesus came to give us an example of the ideal life in the flesh. So, we ought to live with the milestones all things being equal.Are you ready to move from childhood to manhood?


Father,I climb by revelation in the knowledge of the son of man as I yield to the spirit of revelation in Jesus name
