“I have much to learn about this, but it is hard to understand because I am slow to learn. In fact, though by this time I ought to be teaching others, I still need someone to teach me many of the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. I still feel the need for milk, not certain that I am ready for solid food! I rely too much on milk, like an infant, not as acquainted as I should be with the solid food teaching about righteousness. I know that solid food is for the mature, and only by constant use can I train myself to distinguish good from evil. I eagerly desire to leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity.” (a personal adaptation of Hebrews 5:11–6:1, NIV 1984).
My Musings – Not being a trained theologian, I suppose that my musings might be considered by many as elementary teachings. At best, somewhere between milk and solid food, perhaps. My hope is, however, that in some small way others can learn along with me as together we mature in the faith. With minds, hearts and actions working together to help us live Godly, Christlike, Spirit-filled lives. Becoming more and more grounded in the foundation of the Word, increasingly connected to the Heavens through a growing intimate prayer life, bolstered by fellowship with like-minded believers, as we are mentored by them and we in turn become able to mentor others.
My Advice – Let’s not remain infants. Let’s move on to maturity. I wrote “Got Spiritual Milk?” as a primer for discipleship. I invite you to check it out at my “Store.”
