PART II "Growing Life"
Lesson 5 "As an Infant"
Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation (1 Peter 2:2)
How do people become Christian? You do not become a Christian just because you've been baptized, or by attending church services.
Lesson 6 "As a Citizen of the Kingdom of God"
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14)
People cannot live enriched lives without a correct self-image. In the previous section, we learned that Christians are spiritual infants, and in this section we will learn that they are citizens of the kingdom of heaven.
Lesson 7 "As a Soldier"
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)
To live is in itself a constant battle wether you are a Christian or not. An infant is thrown into the new battle as soon as it is born. Human bodies incessantly fight against bacteria that enter them. Plants will die without water and maintenance. Marriages are not matter of luck, but something that requires nurturing by two people. To live, in a sense, is to fight.
Lesson 8 "As a Sheep"
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10)
God has a path of blessing prepared for each and every one of us. In all problems and despair, there is certainly at least one path of blessing. This is the faith that we have in God.
