Are You Ready for Solid Food?

Are You Ready for Solid Food?

[[Read Hebrews 5:11 – 6:4]]

Main Verse:

“You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food.” – Hebrews 5:12 [NLT]

Hebrews 6:1-4 Breakdown:

  1. Basic Foundation
  • Repentance
  • Faith
  1. Basic Instruction
  • Baptism
  • Holy Spirit
  • Resurrection
  • Judgment
  1. God’s Grace
  • “And so, God willing, we will move forward to further understanding.” (6:3 NLT)
  • God’s Grace allows for Spiritual Maturity

You aren’t meant to stay a child living on milk.

What keeps you a Milk Drinker?

  • Laziness (v. 11) – Where is the passion / desire?
  • Lack of Influence (v.12) – Ought to be teaching but need retaught
  • Dull Discernment (vs. 13-14) – Unable to discern good and evil

From Milk to Solid Food…

  • Drink Milk – “Pure Spiritual Milk” (1 Peter 2:2) – The Gospel
  • Swallow & Digest Milk – Milk produces renewed mind
  • Practice, Practice, Practice
  • Satisfaction Promotes Discernment

Psalm 63:1, 8

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh faints for You, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water… my soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me. [ESV]
