THE CAUSE OF RETARDED GROWTH* by C. R. Stam

Post  Admin on Sun 13 Mar 2011, 12:05 pm

THE CAUSE OF RETARDED GROWTH*
* by C. R. Stam*
*
In the physical realm retarded growth may be due to *
*some mishap or may be simply one of the results of the *
*curse, having no direct bearing on the behavior of the par-*
*ents, and certainly not of the child itself. In the spiritual *
*realm this is not so. God has made abundant provision for *
*every child of God to grow to spiritual manhood, and Paul *
*rebukes the Corinthian believers for not having grown.*

*The trouble with the Corinthians was that they did not *
*have much appetite for the Word; they did not have a pas-*
*sion to know and obey the truth, for the babe in Christ who *
*"desires" the pure milk of the Word will surely "grow there-*
*by." This was the trouble with the Hebrew believers too, *
*for when the Apostle would have gone further into the *
*great subject of Christ as "an High Priest forever after the *
*order of Melchisedec, " he was forced to write:*

*"Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered,*
*seeing ye are dull [Gr., nothros, slothful] of hearing"*
* (Heb. 5:11).*

*This is precisely the cause of the carnality among be-*
*lievers today. During World War II there were several *
*occasions when parents came to the writer with letters from *
*their sons in the armed forces, explaining that a code had *
*been arranged by which "Johnny" could let them know to *
*which theatre of war he had been sent, but that now it was *
*difficult to understand his letter. Together we would sit *
*down and study the letter in detail in an effort to make out *
*exactly what it was that "Johnny" was trying to make his *
*parents understand.*

*Such interest and concern over a letter from "Johnny"! *
*And appropriately so, but do the majority of believers show *
*such interest in the Word of God to them? They do not. *
*They are satisfied with "the simple things," with knowing *
*only a few passages which "warm their hearts." This is the *
*root cause of the spiritual immaturity in the Church today. *

* *
Lord Jesus, You are my indwelling treasure. When pressures,
perplexities, persecutions, or catastrophes come my way, teach me to
trust in You. When others ask how I am sustained through these
difficulties, remind me to give all glory and honor to You. In Your name
I pray, Amen
