2 Christianity – A Growth Process When we are baptized, we are raised to walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. We are babes in Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. Hebrews 5:13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

3 Christianity – A Growth Process We must desire the pure milk of the word to grow. 1 Peter 2:1-2 Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, We must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. 2 Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

4 Christianity – A Growth Process One area in which we must exhibit growth is in our knowledge of and carrying out of our responsibilities to our fellow man. Matthew 22:34-40 Agapao – love that embraces the judgment and deliberate assent of the will as a matter of principle, duty and propriety.

5 Our Responsibility To Our Fellow Man: Concern for physical needs

6 Concern For Physical Needs Luke 10:25-37, Matthew 25:31-46 We should show concern and do good to all men Galatians 6:10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Pure religion is to visit widows and orphans in their trouble. James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

7 Our Responsibility To Our Fellow Man: Concern for physical needs Live peaceably as much as is within us

8 Romans 12:17-21 Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. Ephesians 4:26 Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, Matthew 5:38-42 Even for our enemies v. 43-48

11 Our Responsibility To Our Fellow Man: Concern for physical needs Live peaceably as much as is within us Set an example Warn them of spiritual danger

12 We cannot be so concerned with their physical needs that we leave out their spiritual needs. John 6:26-29 Ezekiel 33:7-11, Acts 20:26-27 Romans 3:23, 6:23 Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
