Hebrews 6:4-6

 

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,  who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.

 

 

LESSON

 

Every true Christian has “tasted” the Word of God and found it to be “good” to some extent. The warnings are clearly not addressed to nominal Christians, but to those who have shared, as fully as it is possible to share in the present time, in the blessings which accompany and follow entry into the Christian life.

Falling away from the truth is not a hypothetical possibility, but a tragic reality in too many cases, among believers. Christians departed from the faith in the first century and they also do so today.

 

Memory verse: 1 John 1:9
