BACK TO SOLID FOOD
Main Text- Hebrews 5:12-13- For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.
Hebrews 5:14- But solid food belongs to those who are full age, that is those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
There is the subject of food in our study today and we must understand that it is a spiritual food that we are discussing. As Christians, the source of our food is the word of God-read or heard from the Holy Bible or from the people of God. Every baby’s food is milk which nourishes the body in a unique way. But there comes a time when the baby’s body system will begin to crave for solid food or what we call family food. At this stage of development, if we go on with milk alone then we are doing the baby more harm than good. This is the same with our faith walk with Jesus Christ.
Solid food could mean receiving the word of God as rebuke and discipline. Hearing and graciously receiving the absolute truth in God’s word so that we will be able to stand and firmly withstand all the wiles of the devil without falling.
A true disciple of Christ must sit down and learn the teachings of Christ so that he can discipline others. It is only those who eat the solid food of God’s word that can distinguish good from evil and know those who are wolves in sheep’s clothing.
THE EATING AND DIGESTING OF SOLID FOOD CURES AND PREVENTS SPIRITUAL MALNUTRITION
