Readings: Hebrews 6:1-8
John Calvin from his commentary on Hebrews:
“Satan stealthily creeps on us, and by degrees allures us by clandestine arts, so that when we go astray we know not that we are going astray. Thus gradually we slide, until at length we rush headlong into ruin.”
“You will seek and you will find me when you seek me with all your heart” (ESV).
Arthur W. Pink from his commentary on Hebrews:
“The six items enumerated—“repentance from dead works,” etc.—have nothing to do with the “foundations of Christianity,” nor do they describe those things relating to the elementary experiences of a Christian. Instead, they treat of what appertained to Judaism, considered as a rudimentary system, paying the way for the fuller and final revelation which God has now made in and by His beloved Son.”
My life is one of contradictions. I’m a southern boy living in northern New England; a boring guy married to super-fun girl; a conservative pastor in a progressive Christian denomination; a changed man in need of change; a sinner loved by a holy and perfect God.
