Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. (1 Timothy 4:7-8)

Like newborn babies crave pure spiritual milk, so by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. (1 Peter 2:2)

Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. (Hebrews 5:13-14)

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. (Ephesians 4:14)

According to God's Word the way for the believer to build himself up is through a constant craving for the godly life. And that is best attained through a dilligent search for the truth found only in the Bible, and a calling upon the assistance of the Holy Spirit though faith in Christ. A hallmark of the mature Christian is his ability to distinguish good from evil. Clearly that ability is not something that comes naturally, but can only come from proper training in God's Word.

As the Church becomes more and more influenced by secular thinking and the world continues its relentless march to complete immorality, it becomes more and more important for believers to individually practice the spiritual disciplines of the Bible!
