[Shepherding the Sheep with One Heart ] A Grown-up Christian

There are people who are against and disobey the word of God even though they say that they believe in Jesus based on their knowledge and intellect. 

They think that what their ideas are better than the word of God. Such people stand against the knowledge of God with their own knowledge. 

The most foolish are those who are against the all knowing knowledge of God. We should acknowledge that God's knowledge is perfect and obey it. We should say the right thing to those who don't accept the knowledge of God and insist their own which will it cause a terrible result both their body and soul for their ignorance. 

If we have the knowledge of God, which is that the Son of God, Jesus Christ died shedding His blood on the cross, and live as the children of God, we have the greatest blessing in our lives. However if you live by your own standards and think that your knowledge is the best, you are spiritually ignorant and asleep. We should attain to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ in our faith life. (Ephesians 4:13) 

Those who are wise realize how much they lack and try to fill it up. We go to kindergarten when we are young. When we are a little grown up, we go to elementary school, then to middle and high school, on to university, and finally to graduate school. 

So you acquire more knowledge. Some who graduated from university want to learn more so they enter graduate school to study again. They work on a master's degree and doctorate. Even though we learn till we die, we cannot learn all the knowledge of modern society. 

The Lord knows everything from the past to the future. How infinite is the knowledge of the Lord? We can never boast of our knowledge before the Lord's omniscience. Those used by the Lord realize their ignorance and keep growing by the truth. So they will pray, read the Bible and try to live according to the will of the Lord with repentance whenever they commit sin day by day.
