Are You A Juice Box Christian?


A Juice Box Christian is one who purposefully avoids growing their faith by being content to dwell solely on the basic principles of God (Hebrews 5:12-14, 6:1-2). This sort of Christian is one who will be “tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes” (Ephesians 4:14). Rather than being a juice box Christian, let’s give ourselves to God’s word so that “we may grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ” (Ephesians 4:15).
