Cary Cox, from Hebrews 5:11 – 6:3. The writer pauses his teaching on Christ’s priesthood to give a serious warning. He will warn against apostasy – turning finally from the faith. But first, he tells us what leads to apostasy: prolonged spiritual immaturity, which is caused by laziness in the things of God. When we fail to grow up in Christ we are walking on dangerous ground.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 2:1-4. The first warning of the book of Hebrews calls us to pay close attention to the gospel of Jesus so that we do not drift away through spiritual neglect. Are we growing, or drifting? Do we treasure Christ and the preaching of God’s word? God uses the proclaimed gospel to strengthen us and keep us in the faith.
