Why aren’t we seeing more people come to Christ?
Why do our churches have a hard time meeting budget?
Why do we still have racial divisions?
Why do we have such a high level of poverty in our communities?
Why are so many students graduating, never to return to church?
Why do we have so many Christian families falling apart?
Why do our churches look the same now as it did a year ago?
Why am I not experiencing the fruitful and abundant Christian life?
The answer to each of these questions is the same:
We do not love the word of God as we ought.
About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
This is a powerful, anointed sermon on Hebrews 5: 11-14 about our failure to love the word of God and how it effects our days. This teaching is the heartbeat of Do Not Depart.
Here are our highlights of the sermon, with the times you can find them:
Hebrews 5:11-14 gives us 3 Accusations and a Test.
Accusation #1: You have become dull of hearing. (05:13-16:50)
Accusation #2: You should be teachers by now. (16:51-22:39)
Accusation #3: You are unskilled in the word. (22:40-28:30)
The Test: You are mature if you KNOW and DO the word of God. (28:31-34:45)
The answers to our questions. (34:46-41:59)
I hope you can find some time this week to listen to this sermon. If you can’t find 40 minutes to listen to it all at once, take a section a day. Each section is just 10-15 minutes each. I know you will be blessed!
Oh, the sermon is by my husband!
