Milk or Meat

Hebrews 5:11-14 complains about some Christians who just will not grow. These Christians should be “teachers” but instead of “teachers” they are still babies. The writer can’t tell the people certain things that he should be able to teach them because they are “dull of hearing.” They want to continue ingesting the food of babies.

Baby food is good for babies, but when you won’t get past it, it is problematic. As I think about this, I begin to wonder, how many of us are not growing in grace? How many of us are still eating baby food when God wants us to eat grown folks food.

And how many “milk” preachers are there in comparison to the “strong meat” preachers. Are the popular preachers “milk” preachers or “strong meat” preachers? Was Elijah a “milk preacher?”

Will we have milk or meat? Will we grow or not? In the final analysis, it is up to you…
