And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ…for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
1 Corinthians 3:1-3
The Apostle Paul spoke these words unto people who had believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore could be termed as Christians. It is rather unfortunate however that, these people did not reflect Christ in their ways.
The Apostle expected more from these people because they were born again, and yet their lives didn’t reflect 2 Corinthians 5:17, their old lives never seemed to have passed!
They were simply, a bunch of body ruled beings. They were carnal rather than spiritual beings.
Sorry to say that this is more like the story of many Christians even today. Living by the standard of the world rather than God’s even though the Bible makes it clear that It’s only those that are lead by the Spirit of God who could be called God’s own.
By the fruit you’re bearing, can you be addressed as a Spirit filled man, Or just an ordinary man?
The one in Christ is never ordinary. Absolutely not!
You are a new creature, therefore behave yourself after the standard of God’s Word. Grow up, walk as a Spiritual man and allow the man on the inside of you to dominate.
You are born anew for greater works don’t be ordinary!
Like your lifestyle reflect who you are, One born of God.
