Keep It Up

Sermon text: Hebrews 6:9-12

All Christians should strive to be spiritually mature. The writer of Hebrews noticed that some of his readers were falling short of this goal. They had not turned from God. Indeed, they had shown themselves to be faithful ministers to other believers. But they seemed to running out of steam as they got older. This is a challenge for many Christians today. They are tired or they feel they did their part earlier in life. The focal passage for today tells us all to not slack off just because there may be less life in front of us than behind us.
