Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits. (Hebrews 6:1-3)
Honestly, going through the book of Hebrews has been very difficult for me. I doubt this book was written by Paul, who so clearly lays out his doctrine and theology. Hebrews is elaborate poetry that takes a while to unravel. The premise of the book is that Jesus is better than everything. Hebrews 6 says that a relationship with Jesus us better than religion. If we have really come to know Jesus, we will not settle for anything less than Him in this world. This is a relationship that He has initiated with us. As with any relationship, I need to grow in my knowledge of Jesus in order to grow in my love for Him. Father, thank you for reaching out to me to begin a relationship with you. Please continue to draw me to yourself and remind me to spend more time with you.
