Hebrews 6:1-12 NLT

So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God. You don’t need further instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And so, God willing, we will move forward to further understanding.

For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding Him up to public shame.

When the ground soaks up the falling rain and bears a good crop for the farmer, it has God’s blessing. But if a field bears thorns and thistles, it is useless. The farmer will soon condemn that field and burn it.

Dear friends, even though we are talking this way, we really don’t believe it applies to you. We are confident that you are meant for better things, things that come with salvation. 10 For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do. 11 Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. 12 Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance.

Father God, Lord of all creation,

We praise, worship and magnify Your name. We are thankful to be alive. Another day to fulfill Your will for our lives. It is wonderful to be walking in the fullness of Your love. Thank You for directing our path (Proverbs 3:6). You have all wisdom. It is more than we could ever even imagine. The more we absorb Your word, the more enlightened we become. Things are becoming clearer and clearer. Oh, how wonderful to be walking with You. You have filled the emptiness that used to be inside of every one of us. I praise and thank You for everything that You do, have done and will do on behalf of Your children. We are loved by You. We are Your chosen possession (1 Peter 2:9). Help us to understand Your word. Give us the desire to study what Your word says. Help us to grow in our faith. That we be very knowledgeable of Your word (2 Timothy 3:16). Help us to always have an answer of the hope that we have inside of us (1 Peter 3:15). You are our glorious hope (Romans 15:13). Let our speech be well seasoned that we would minister grace to those around us. Also that we would know how to answer everyone (Colossians 4:6). We love You and ask that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). Help us to live our lives Kingdom-minded. For we ask it all in Jesus’ name. Amen.
