“By this time you ought to be teachers.” Hebrews 5:12. Certain people in the church were not growing in spiritual maturity. They had not learned to distinguish between good and bad (Hebrews 5:14). They still needed to be fed by someone else when they should have been feeding not only themselves but others as well. While receiving spiritual food from preachers and teachers is good, spiritual growth and survival also depend on knowing how to feed ourselves. Spiritual growth requires the solid food of God’s Word.
