Meat and Milk

Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. Hebrews 5:11-12

 

The Word of God is referred to as Milk and Meat, what does the author mean by this? Anyone who has been studying the Bible long enough, knows there are some easy doctrines to understand  and then there are some difficult ones. As that famous line in the movie “A few good men” it was said “You cant handle the truth”, often until we are mature Christians, some of the doctrines of the Bible are difficult to understand

 

When someone is born, they are an infant, a baby, you dont just start feeding a baby a steak! A baby starts off on milk and eventually as their digestive system develops they move to solid food. This should be the same with our Christian walk. When we first become Born Again, we are babies in Christ. Theres alot of things to learn, theres alot of things to experience, theres alot things to comprehend and digest during our walk. 

 

Therefor you dont start off giving a new Christian meat, you feed them milk and let them develop there way by the Holy Spirit get to a point of maturity. I think one of the biggest mistakes by “Street Preachers” is they are trying to feed meat to unbelievers. When talking to a non believer or new believer, keep it simple! Keep it about the gospel of Jesus Christ!

 

For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5:13-14

 

Now there also comes a time, when a Christian needs to mature and move on from milk and start eating meat! If you wonder why your not growing spiritual as a Christian, it could be that your still just drinking milk and not eating  spiritual meat! We should always be seeking to know God deeper and to understand his revelation further!

 

Just as with a baby, unless they starting eating meat , they will not grow and develop. The same with your Christian life, if you dont study your Bible, if you dont read books, if you dont have Bible studies/discussions with other Christians, your not going to grow spiritually. The Holy Spirit will be your teacher and advocate, its a process of sanctification to help you grow stronger in The Lord, Amen!

    When Jesus makes breakfast it is WHOLE bread and WHOLE fish! (John 21:13) revealing he is ALIVE forever and RESURRECTED forever and ever King of kings and Lord of lords and High Priest over us, giving us His salvation, redemption, sanctification, glorification and righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, who always intercedes and pray with and in us so we can pray and intercede for others who don’t know our Lord and Savior. Oh how I love Jesus!
