Crisis and the Call to Grow Up (Hebrews 5:11-6:20)



Everybody goes through crises of faith -- seasons when the maturity of our faith in Jesus doesn't match the reality of our life. These moments are a gift when God challenges us to grow up. Listen as Dave Ainsworth speaks an encouraging word from one of the sternest warnings delivered in Scripture.


About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
    Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits. (Hebrews 5:11-6:4 ESV)
