I was reading Hebrews 5 the other day and boom! Verses 11-12 stopped me in my tracks. See for yourself:
“Concerning [Melchizedek] we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you.” Hebrews 5:11-12 NASB
Make no mistake, precious sister, Heb. 5:11-12 is an indictment on immature-by-choice Christians.
But spiritual maturity is also a choice. It happens when we choose to “press on to maturity” (Heb. 6:1). Have you made that choice? And if so, how can you tell if/when you’re mature?
P. S. It’s so good to be back on the porch! I’ve missed you! I had a busy and blissful January (the blissful part is my new granddaughter, Aubrey — I am smitten). January also brought wonderful news about my mother (thanks to all of you who have been praying for her since her surgery). Her oncologist determined that she does not need follow-up chemo or radiation. This, of course, was and is an enormous blessing to her, my dad, and to all of our family. And on behalf of all of them, I want to thank you for your intercession, encouragement, and support. I love you, sisters!
