Romans 12:4-5 and Ripe blueberries with Unripe Blueberries, Bellevue, Nebraska.Ripe and green unripe blueberries on a branch, Bellevue, Nebraska. Romans 12:4-5 Growing together in Christ

“For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” Romans 12:4-5

Maturing and Growing Together in Christ

Within the body of Christ (the Church) there exist many different believers growing in their faith . Not only does each believer poses different gifts, but each believer is at a different level of spiritual maturity. Just as an unripe blueberry needs to grow and mature, so do new believers. Those stronger in their faith provide wisdom and encouragement to those newer in their faith and walk with God. Together, both new Christians and those more mature in their faith, are to walk side by side as we grow in love and faith in Christ.

Read all of Romans 12.
