Hebrews 6:1 sums up my feelings right now. “So let us stop going over the basics of Christianity again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding.” I am so sick of weak sermons, weak application of faith, surface level prayer. By the way, I’m talking about myself. Hebrews 1:9 says, “You love what is right and hate what is wrong.” I don’t always do this and I hate it.

Instead I should write Romans 7:15-20 “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good.  As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.  For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.”

However, I do not want to solely blame satan. I make a choice daily. Unfortunately, I drift away sometimes (Hebrews 2:1). But what can I do to correct this?

Answer:

1. Cling to him and never stop trusting (Hebrews 4:14)

2. Enter his place of rest (Hebrews 4:3)

3. Make sure that our own hearts are not evil and unbelieving (Hebrews 3:12)

4. Warn each other daily (Hebrews 3:13)

5. Keep up our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ (Hebrews 3:6)

6. Listen carefully to the truth (Hebrews 2:1)

7. Allow the Word to expose us for what we are (Hebrews 4:12)

8. Learn obedience from the things we suffer (Hebrews 5:8)

9. Train yourself [with spiritual disciplines] (Hebrews 5:14)

10. Rely on God’s promise and oath (Hebrews 6:18)
