11 You will teach me how to live a holy life. Being with you will fill me with joy; at your right hand I will find pleasure forever. — Psalm 16:11 NCV
Just as we would never leave physical babies alone to fend for themselves, neither should we leave Spiritual babies alone to fend off satan all by themselves. The great commission of Matthew 28 says to “go and make disciples”. Making disciples or teaching a new baby in Christ to walk requires us to give up our most valuable non-renewable possession – time. We need to give of our time to teach new converts the value of daily prayer and meditating on the Scriptures. We need to spend time with them teaching them that being saved does not mean that we will never be offended or that we will never fail. We need to spend enough time with them to be sure that they understand that those offenses and failures does not mean that God does not love them. God is, in fact, right there with them all of the time. He never sleeps nor slumbers and He never leaves us alone. Every time we fall, He is there to pick us up, clean us up, wrap His arms around us and love us until the pain goes away. Most of all, we must teach them that their Helper lives right inside of them and is always there to teach, lead and guide and help them to stand.
