Precepts May 5, 2014

Maturity is achieved when a person has learned :

S ubmission – a readiness to renounce my own will for the sake of Another!
O bedience – a glad heart choice for the will of God
A ccountability – willing choice to live under those in authority over me
R esponsibility & Repentance – willing to readily admit; “Yes, I did that!”

And… “ I ask your forgiveness. I sinned against God and you;
Will you forgive me?”

That is a mature person who will; “…trust in the Lord because they have exchanged their strength for
His. They will SOAR on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint!”

Isaiah 40:31 NLT
