I hope you’re well on this terrific Thursday. There’s an interesting and tough word that the Hebrew writer gives in Hebrews 6:1. There the Bible says, “Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go onto maturity…” (BSB) The writer is calling for the church community to move on to maturity. Simply put, the writer tells the church to grow up. Christian maturity is necessary in this season. It is necessary for our personal character development. It is necessary in how we treat one another. It will also be necessary as we regather as a church community. Let’s commit to grow together. As we do, God will be pleased and praised.
