1 John 2:14 says: “I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.” If you want to make strong disciples, you must teach them to feed on God’s Word. Nobody can overcome sin or become a strong Christian without feeding regularly on Scripture.
If you want to build muscle you must go on a high-protein diet. If you want to grow spiritual muscle you must discipline yourself to eat the meat of the Word. Don’t just snack on spiritual junk food. Don’t just listen to occasional sermons. Teach your disciples to study daily, cut deep into the Word, find the choice meat and chew long on it. That’s how you become a strong man of God.
