Many people mistakenly equate number of birthdays with maturity. Though this may have some weight legally, it has nothing to do with spiritual maturity. Far too often, people who have followed the Lord for a number of years still wander from church to church, looking for a quick fix to the problems in their lives. Perhaps you are wondering why you’re not growing in the things of God. Maybe you feel physically and spiritually drained, or maybe you have lost your passion for the things of God. Could it be that the Scriptures as preached in your church are not being presented in an easily digestible form? Just as physical age does not represent a person’s natural level of wisdom, length of time in a church does not validate someone’s level of maturity in the Word of God. It all depends on how the Word of God is being presented. Eating with the King balances earthly things with spiritual things. Leaders will grasp the concept of how their flocks digest their messages on a week-to-week basis and will then search their hearts and ask, “What is the condition of my flock?” Spiritual leaders must know what they are serving on the King’s table. They must know how to properly measure out each portion according to the needs of their audience. That means serving the meat as well as the vegetables and gently guiding their followers to healthy spiritual food that nourishes the soul. Eating with the King will give you insight into important principles concerning the feeding of God’s children: • Not every word spoken from the pulpit is for everyone. It all depends on their season, timing, and maturity level. • The Word of God is not junk food. • There must be reverential respect for dining at the table with the King. • Servants should respect worthy leaders. • A balanced diet between earthly and spiritual things grows strong Christians. Are you ready to eat your fill? Then dive into Eating with the King!
