Hebrews 6:1-3 - 1 Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, 2 instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And God permitting, we will do so.
It’s time to dig deeper. A couple of Sundays ago during Sunday school I left those that attended with a mission. To not only know what the Bible says, because that is not enough. But to dig into the meat of scripture and to find out why the Bible says what it says. I challenged them to move beyond the “elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity”. I told them that if they do this and truly dig deep into their beliefs, as well as into what the Bible says, their faith will grow tremendously. I also told them that if they took finding out why the Bible says what it says seriously then they would be able to stand up to any attacks from the enemy in their life. Because they will not only know what God is telling them, but why.
Have you been stuck in the elementary teachings about Christ? Is it time for you to dig deeper? Are you ready for more? If the answers to these are yes, then take this challenge to heart! Dig deeper in your own faith! God is absolutely speaking to you and hopefully you are listening. Take the time and invest in your relationship with Jesus. Discover not only what God is saying to you, but also why God is speaking that truth directly to you. There is a reason why God directed you to a certain passage or spoke to you about a certain area of your life. Dig deeper. Let’s grow in or faith together, and discover not only what God is saying, but why.
