No one likes to be called a baby. In the passage we’re looking at in church today the writer of Hebrews accuses the 1st century Roman Christians of being just like that, “You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant.” They thought, because they’d got the basics right about the Christian faith, they didn’t need to try and understand anything deeper. They thought they could just tread water.
No one thinks like that in general life, we want to learn and develop, we want to progress in our careers. But, are we in danger of being infantile in our Christian faith? Are we treading water? The writer encourages them to “move beyond the elementary teaching about Christ and be taken forward to maturity.” This is a great encouragement for us to keep growing in our knowledge and love of Christ. If you’re not sure how to do that please ask someone you trust Don’t stay a baby Christian, grow up!
