Maturing Men of God Are Self-Feeders

Today, Walter is four-months old and I had some fun making a video with him!

As you all know, I get to help steward some areas of The Majesty’s Men. One area I enjoy very much is the Twitter page. Check out this video I made with my son, Walter, for the page.

View the video on Twitter here.

As I mention in the video, it’s true that every man of God who follows Christ for the long haul is a self-feeder.

We cannot sit back and wait for other leaders to feed us in order to stay healthy in our faith. Sooner or later, we must learn how to feed ourselves, and eventually feed others.

It’s important that every one of us who plan to follow Christ for the long haul learn to be self-feeders so that we can ultimately stay well nourished all the time. The truth is, many “Christians” are going through life malnourished.

Why am I struggling so bad? 

Why is my thought life so dark? 

How do I keep finding myself in these difficult situations?

These are some of the thoughts many evangelical Christians ask themselves as they neglect personal prayer, ignore private Bible study, and refuse worshipful participation in a local church body.

Walter joined me for the video because he’s my baby boy. He cannot feed himself, and that’s part of being a baby.

Now, those who’ve been following Christ for some time should be feeders by now. They should be feeding on meat by themselves instead of milk by someone else (cf. 1 Corinthians 3:1-3).

This is part of growing up.

Where are you currently at in your walk with Christ? Are you just now learning to eat? Have you been walking for some time now and learning to feed yourself? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. I’m halfway into my 13TH year on this journey, and I’m approaching the 4TH anniversary of what I refer to as the “Renaissance” of my journey. After walking-in-place / stalling for a couple of years I realized that I needed to “go big or go home”. You can’t be lukewarm on this journey. I went big. I changed church venues. New building. New people. New family. New worship. It’s been the greatest 4 years of my continuing salvation. I’m moving forward at a brisk yet steady pace towards Christ, and I’ve learned to “eat on my own” when I’m not with church family. That’s Bible study. That’s sermon writing. That’s social media. That’s TBN. That’s K-LOVE. You can’t minister to others unless you are well-nourished with God’s wisdom. Gotta be fueled with God’s Truth !
