Hebrews 6:9 Persuaded of Better Things of You. Here the apostle tries. To move his instruction beyond the fundamentals into a more dynamic understanding of God’s plan. Here maturity is demanded, knowledge is prerequisite, a willing spirit is required, and focus is essential. A sports coach may say something similar: “You are covering the basics, that keeps you from being bad, but that you are just good keeps you from being great. I want you to be great. Do you want it?” I want to echo the same. We are close to revival. We are close to overcoming the flesh. We are close to making an impact for Christ. We are a pretty good church…. I am convinced we can be even better! -PB
