Bible Term: Spiritual Maturity

Just as babies drink milk and mature people eat solid food, new followers of Jesus require spiritual milk and need to be fed; whereas established followers should be able to feed themselves, that is, grow spiritually. When believers can spiritually feed themselves, they are spiritually mature.

This concept is discussed in 1 Corinthians 3:2 and Hebrews 5:12.
