Vital signs - Saturday, April 28th, 2023


Remember the first time you gave solids to your first born? For many It would have been around six months old and up until that point the only food they had known was the mother's milk. 

We started with baby food, not hot wings and fries! The baby wouldn't have been ready for it. I, on the other hand, am always ready for hot wings and fries! 

There’s a certain type of food appropriate for a child and others for adults. In fact, it’d be weird for a grown adult to eat baby food!

The writer of the Hebrews, acting as a loving pastor, warns his readers that their spiritual growth is stunted. While they ought to be at the maturity of ‘solid food’ and able to teach others, they still need to be fed themselves. This is likely the case because they’ve become dull of hearing (5:11). 

Spiritual growth or maturity is the goal of all who follow Jesus (Colossians 1:28). We mature as we train or practice (5:14), or as we form spiritual habits. 

In the instant age we live in, we want to fast-track everything. There is no fast-track or accelerated program to spiritual maturity.  We grow as we practice the daily habits of prayer, worship, reading the Word, fellowship, silence, stillness, thankfulness, and more. 

This is much more than a Bible reading plan. It’s meditating on the Word and experiencing God’s presence in prayer.  

Are you hungry for more of God? Because He wants to satisfy your longing with good things (Psalm 107:9), and make you more like Jesus!


”There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don’t seem to listen. You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.“

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭5‬:‭11‬-‭14‬ ‭NLT‬‬
