22 Signs of Mature Christians;Checklist for the Faithful Christian babes

Mature Christians are people who are no more confused by the tricks of the devil. They develop and grow in the obedience of the word of God daily.

One of the attributes of mature Christians is synonymous to the story of a boy and his teacher:

“A teacher of English Language was giving a dictation to the class. The students were asked to write the words dictated by the teacher. Those who write every letter correctly without any error in spelling would receive prize.

The teacher started the test by announcing the first word – ‘peace’. The students began to write. A bright and brilliant boy stood up and asked the teacher, “Madam, I know three words pronounced similarly, which of these we should write. The boy meant the similar sounding words – ‘peace’, ‘piece’ and ‘peas’.

The teacher forgot that a test was in progress and tried to make her point very clear, “It is p-e-a-c-e peace” she announced. There were roars of laughter.”

So, mature Christians seek for the mind of God in everything they intend to do. More signs of mature Christians are listed below;
