through His Word
Hebrews Ch. 6 Go past first things, on to “perfection” (exactly what God wants).
v.1-6 Don’t lay down, again and again, the foundation of truth, as if it were possible for some to fall away from believing the truth, and then to be restored.
v.7-8 Hearing and using the word is blessed by God, but receiving the word and still producing what is useless or harmful, is not.
v.9-12a Show diligence in your work and labor of love, and don’t become sluggish.
v.12b-16 Imitate those who, through faith and patience, inherit the blessings that God has sworn to give them.
v.17-18 God wanted us to be so certain of His promises, that He swore to give them to us (and it is impossible for God to lie).
v.19-20 So have strong faith in Jesus’ completed work and in God’s promise to be with you, to work in your heart and life, and to bless you with His presence.
Application: How do we go on to perfection?

Don’t become sluggish. (v.12)
Imitate those who walk by faith. (v.12)
