As Christians, we must understand that when it comes to growing in Christ, there is no graduation. Whether you have had a relationship with God for 50 years or you are just starting out, it is vital to understand that you never graduate. Growing in relationship with God is the very heartbeat of our faith so we must keep on pursuing God, and have the mindset of lifelong learners, always yearning for a deeper and deeper knowledge of Christ.
We are all called to be disciples, meaning we are called to learn! If we look at various scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Colossians 3:16, 2 John 1:9) it is clear that God designed us to be lifelong learners.
We must resist the temptation to be short-term learners where we spend some time learning about Christ and then spend the rest of our journey satisfied in our residual knowledge of Christ. To stop learning is to stop your heartbeat. To stop learning is to stay in shallow waters.
Here, Mike Omoniyi encourages and instructs us on how to leave shallow waters and embrace the riches and depth of being in deep relationship with God.
