Memory Verse Level 2

For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (Hebrews 5:13-14 NKJV)

Here are a couple BIG questions:

  1. How long have you called yourself a Christian?
  2. How long have you owned a Bible?
  3. How much of God’s Word do you really know?
  4. More importantly, how much of God’s Word to you understand?
  5. Good or bad, who is at fault?

How often have you run into Believers who can quote chapter and verse from their Bibles?

I don’t know with certainty if this talent was once common, BUT in the past I imagine it was once the case.

These individuals often hear a Biblical concept and then whip-out a Bible verse and then share Biblical truths which inspire or convict.

If this description does not reflect your walk with God and His Word…
Don’t be alarmed!
It is simply time to step up your game.
Memory Verses are a good starting point.

So!

Again, check out this TRUTH from God’s Word:  Hebrews 5:13-14

For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (Hebrews 5:13-14 NKJV)

Let’s quickly examine these concepts:

  • Everyone
    • that’s you and me –
  • Who only drinks the baby’s milk of God’s Word
    • who does not dig in, learn the Bible and grow up as a Believer –
  • These individuals do not truly understand how to maturely process and manage God’s Word of Truth in their life or for the lives of others.
  • These Believers are still Babies in Christ… even after 30 or more years some of these individuals are still children, babes in Christ and STILL unable to fully process God’s Word.
    • For most, their barely-Christian lives reflect their lack of understanding.
  • The full meal deals within God’s Word are not digestible to these Babies.
  • Because they have not fully understood the mother’s-milk of God’s Word they cannot yet process the deeper more complex truths within God’s Word.
  • The verse indicates the solid food can only be processed by those who have read and studied and LIVED and PRACTICED God’s Word…
  • Exercising their Spiritual senses thru USE of God’s Word in their lives and life practices.
  • Only through experience and USE is God’s Word appropriately employed.

Look!  You are already heading in that direction by learning this and many more Bible verses.

God bless and have a great day!
