Breakdown 2

Tyde’s comment yesterday was right on point.  We do seem to delegate spirituality to the pros.  Howard Hendricks used to liken church to a football game.  You have 80,000 people in the stands in desperate need of exercise, watching 22 men on the field in desperate need of rest.

We cannot get fit by watching someone else workout.  We cannot get financially solvent by watching someone else work, or complaining that they are.  We have to engage in the activity ourselves and at increasingly more intensity.  Continual improvement.

Hebrews 5:13-14 tells us “For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant.  But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.”  We are not supposed to stay with milk, what is stopping us?
