Strong and mature Christians do not simply pop out of the oven overnight.
The fruit of the Spirit takes time to grow in a person.

What Is A Pop Tart Christian?
I read the quote above and immediately thought about pop tarts. Unlike the picture on the left, there was practically nothing inside. Very little filling compared to the dough. Not unlike a new Christian. Or even an “old” Christian who was satisfied with the initial “committing their life to Jesus” – and then does nothing after that. Someone who doesn’t allow the Holy Spirit to fill them and guide their lives.

Is going to church encouraging for you? Why? or Why not?

Is going to church encouraging for you? Why? or Why not?

Being encouraged by going to church is far better than being discouraged. But given what “church” is really about for Christians, it should be a whole lot more than just encouraging. Going to church should be things like exciting, uplifting, energizing, and the like. It should encourage us to build each other up. And it should lead us to want, more than anything, to be more Christ-like. More loving. More forgiving. More alive!

So what do you think? Which of those words describe your church-going experience?
