08/08/2021 I think every believer ebbs and flows in their faith. One moment your up then your down. One moment your on fire with the Holy Spirit, another moment your kicking yourself for falling head first into a barrel of sin. What a battle this life is. They're believers we know who seem like they have it all together and are on fire for God every second of everyday and ohhh how I admire that.

When someone accepts Christ for the first time or re-commits' their life to Christ sometimes people forget the work ahead. It leads some new believers to think there are no new trials ahead as you uproot sin out of your life. As you learn to despise sin. There is, in my opinion, little to no Warning labels you'll hear when the pastor of a church ask you to come down to the alter and commit yourself. Jesus puts many warning labels for the criteria of following him, his audience in that being : []. And of course following Jesus is eternalllllllllly worth it. But as we spiritually mature we all come to a bridge we're scared to cross...persistence. Paul says to give new believers milk not meat comparing the infancy of a toddler to that of a mature adult in Christ. Where is that in between stage? Where do we as humans fall off. Where do we as persistent followers make it across into spiritual maturity?

Maybe it's a practice makes perfect scenario . Rest assured if we ask God for wisdom in this and persist in seeking Jesus, Holy Spirit led, we'll grow into meat eating machines.

With all that pretext above this is my attempt to study the art of "Persistence, Somewhere >< Milk and Meat"

This page I'll dedicate to writing about persistence to following Christ in the worst of times when we fall off the wagon and end up distancing ourselves from God. When we fall off the horse. When we feel shame and choose to purposefully distance ourselves from God and fall head first into the barrel of sin. Wish me luck, I'll come back to this in a few days.
