"Mature Christians aren't learners, always depending on somebody else to bail them out and carry them through. Instead, they are leaders who trust Christ to give them the encouragement and enablement they need for the demands of life. Through Jesus Christ, they can face life courageously and make it work for them, not against them. For mature Christians, life isn't a playground in which babies fight over toys; it's a battle ground where great moral issues must be defended."
