Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
As I was reading a book last night, Hebrews 6:1 was mentioned in it. God really spoke to my heart about the phrase “let us go on” used in this verse.
As Christians, God does not want us to stay in one spot regarding our relationship with Him. He expects us to get a firm foundation ~ built on the doctrine of Christ. But that isn’t our final goal. That is just our beginning.
Have you ever seen a house built? The first thing they build in the foundation. Could you imagine a homeowner telling the contractor, “That’s good enough. We’ll just live on the foundation, we don’t need the rest of the house.” Over course not, that would be crazy.
The same should be for us though. Once we have the firm foundation....LET US GO ON UNTO PERFECTION. Don’t ever stop improving upon and building upon your faith. Our life is a journey and a journey involves motion...that “going on” to the next thing that God have for us to draw us closer to Him.
