Hebrews 5:14 : But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have trained their faculties for the distinguishing of both good and evil.
How I love a good Biblestudy, complete with DVDs and a workbook. To hear someone’s perspective on a book of the Bible feeds my soul.
I also love podcasts from pastors leading churches “at the gates of hell” (my words not their’s). Churches that lie in cities full of people who do not believe in God and do not care what the Bible has to say… and yet these leaders continuously stand strong, speaking the Truth of God’s Word!
Portland, OR – New York, NY – Los Angeles, CA… locations of a few of my top 5 teachers. They are serving up solid food from the Bible to those that will hear. Those that aim to practice what is pleasing to God -at all costs. Those who are training their faculties.
Oh, to continue on the path of seeking and finding God’s treasures. To distinguish rightly good and evil using the lens of God’s Word. To stand up for truth even when culture says “that’s wrong.” To practice God’s standards even when it’s not popular.
…and do it all in extravagant love toward others. What a challenge! I need more training-
