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 rock (word of God), nothing else will satisfy. They will always be hungry for another taste!
When I was a teenager, about 14 or 15 years of age, my summer vacation was spent working for a Mason. All day long, I would mix mortar and carry the same up the scaffolding. 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 had its moments. Then the bright spot! There was an Italian deli just up the street. It sold the best sausage subs in the universe! Yes, that's right, in the universe! I would be always thinking of that delicious sandwich I would soon be having. Sometimes when I was bold and the finances permitted, I would purchase two, always with a 7-up.
When you or I find the meat in God's word, each morsel, every bite, every thought of the same makes you want more! Peculiar you say.
But Jesus said unto them, "I have meat to eat that ye know not of." (John) And again, "verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man (Jesus), and drink his blood ye have no life in you." Enjoy the feast! Praise the Lord.
