Scripture to Read: Hebrews 6:1-3
We know we should always be maturing in our walk with our Lord and His Word. God warns us, in the last half of Hebrews 6:1, that we don’t need to get in a rut continually re-hashing the fundamental importance of repentance from things we know to be evil. Nor should we be wondering about our faith in Him. Every believer, who has been a Christian for three years or longer, should know the fundamental truth of repentance and know they have placed their faith in Christ alone. Knowing we must repent daily and trust God in all areas of our lives is how we stay in right fellowship with our Heavenly Father. Notice I did not write, stay in right relationship, but I wrote, stay in right fellowship. As Christians, our relationship with God NEVER changes. The day we surrendered to our Lord Jesus Christ we became part of His family, adopted by God, to be His FOREVER. What can constantly change is our fellowship with our Heavenly Father. God desires that we fellowship with Him every day. Why? So we will know Him better, grow deeper in our intimacy with Him, and walk in obedience to His Word. If we are continually struggling with the basics of daily repentance, then we have remained incredibly immature as Christians. The Lord continues to warn that we need to get past “teachings about washings (Jewish ritual purifications), the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.” (AMP Bible) As Christians, we should know what God teaches about these things and walk in His Truth.
