“But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14).
The statements are sometimes made, “I want to go deeper into the word” or “I need a meatier bible study.” Such words reflect not only a spiritual arrogance, but also an ignorance of scripture’s intent, which is a transformed life. It matters little how much of it you know if it’s not impacting what you do with the time, energy, and resources entrusted to you. The richness, breadth, and depth of the sacred text is discovered not in another bible study, but the practice and the pursuit of the life of Christ found therein. Engage your faith at the daily intersections of human brokenness and God’s word will come alive in a way it never could in a classroom.
