In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. Hebrews 5:12-14
In Paul’s letter, the theme continues concerning our need to grow, to learn more, and to be taught more about God, not of the worldly things we are surrounded by, but of what He desires from us, and about what our Saviour taught us. This is a lesson that takes time, study in His Word, prayer for guidance. These are the points that Paul is trying to make, both to his readers then, and to us now !
Let us pray please : Holy One, Great Teacher, we pray that you never give up guiding us. Your lessons to us about forgiveness, of charity and kindness to others, of justice and what is right, are lessons that we must follow and learn from, so that we can become the church that You desire us to be. Please feed us the food of knowledge and understanding that we need, God. We pray all of this through Jesus, Your Son. Amen
Yours in Christ , Rollie
