Becoming a Christian doesn't mean instant maturity and change. Often, Christians act and look no different than the world around them. Diet and behavior are two things that distinguish infants from adults, and likewise, "diet" and "behavior" will reveal whether a Christian is growing in maturity or acting childish in their faith. How do we grow in maturity and move on from childish behavior?

ABOUT THIS 1 CORINTHIANS SERIES: Life is messy. Church life is messy. Every church has problems, because every church is made up of people. But God has called His people to come together to live life alongside each other and to encourage and carry each other, even amid difficult and challenging circumstances. The Apostle Paul planted a church in Corinth, Greece, and it very quickly became a church that dealt with many problems. They lacked maturity and wisdom, despite being a very gifted church. 1 Corinthians is a fatherly challenge and guide to them to help them get back on track and grow in the wisdom they need.
