Lesson 9 Move on to Maturity

Junly 28, 2019


  Christians must continually mature in the faith.  


The Lesson Overview

  

Every Christian has struggles to overcome as he or she matures in Christ. For the original audience of Hebrews, the struggles seem to have centered around their familiarity with and desire to maintain the practices of Judaism that would hinder a proper recognition of who Jesus is. This lesson explores how Hebrews addressed this problem in chapter 4, as well as how the writer exhorted the people toward spiritual maturity, in chapters 5–6.

As you study this lesson, try to identify specific stumbling blocks Christians might face today. Then look for ways to challenge students to identify these things and eliminate them from their lives.
