It's Time To Move

We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
                                            Hebrews 5:11-12 (NIV)

Here in this scripture, Paul tells the Hebrews that they should be further along than they are. Their lack of maturity was enabling them from applying the basic principles of God's Word to their lives. Their determination to stay with what's familiar-culture, customs, traditions, was keeping them from going to the next level.

In Deuteronomy 1:6, Moses speaks to the Israelites saying, "The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, 'You have stayed long enough at this mountain."' What about you? Is the Lord telling you you have been in your present condition long enough? Have you allowed life's disappointments to cause you to be stuck? Are you allowing the comfort of familiarity to keep you from moving forward to what God has promised you?

Truth be told, it is very easy to become complacent with routine. Though we may secretly desire something different, we lack the motivation and maturity it takes to commit to the "cause of change." However, as believers in Christ, we must learn discernment. Not just discernment of good and evil, but of good vs best. I have found that one of the challenges I have concerning decision-making is the discernment of doing a good deed vs doing what's best-though the deed may be good, is it the best thing to do?

Training our minds, senses, and bodies to adhere to the Word of God will require maturity, discipline, commitment, and dedication to God's truth. We must decide each day whether we will continue in our old way of thinking, or we will put on the mind of Christ-think like Jesus thinks. The only way to truly be a believer in Christ is to adhere to His Word.
