“Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God” (Hebrews 6:1).
The foundational truths of our faith are of absolute necessity; offering us a sense of rootedness. That the author of Hebrews states we must leave behind these basic tenets doesn’t mean they are to be abandoned or forsaken. A skyscraper has a foundation but it must leave the foundation to become a superstructure. A tree must have roots but it must leave its roots to become a great shade tree. As believers we can’t be just foundations and roots; we must leave out from themif we are to grow up into the greater thing that the foundation has been designed to support.
