Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. (Hebrews 6:1-3)
Can there be more? Is Almighty God offering his Saints even a greater revelation of reality into spiritual life? How is the meat of the word different from the milk? (1 Corinthians 3:2) As one tastes of the Honey in the center of the rock, (the word of God), nothing else will satisfy. They will always hunger for another taste.
As the year 2018 draws to a close, summer season being completed and the fall season being lived; my thoughts go back to when I was 15 years of age. My summer vacation was spent working for a mason. All day long I would mix mortar, carry the same up the scuffling; then more bricks were needed. So up they went several at a time; then back to mixing mortar. For a young fellow with starry eyes for the world, this was quite the challenge. Also, to show up for work every day at 6:30 AM had its moments! Then the bright spot. There was an Italian deli just up the street which sold the best sausage sub in the universe. That's right in the universe! I would always be thinking of that delicious sandwich that I would soon be partaking in. This certainly making a difference to my days toil and laborers. Sometimes when I was bold and the finances permitted, I would purchase two; always with a seven up.
When we find the meat in God's word; each morsel, every bite, every thought will make you want more. Peculiar you say. "But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercise to discern both good and evil." (Hebrews 5:14) Praise the Lord!
