Hebrews 6:1-2 (KJV) Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Many believers are like Patrick and it isn’t their fault. The problem is a faulty foundation. Just like with any building, the Foundation of your Christian doctrine will determine how stable your spiritual life will be. Our Lord Jesus likened those who built their lives according to His Word as a wise man who built his house on a sure foundation — the rock(see Matthew 7:24-27). Apostle Paul referred to the believers in Corinth as God’s building(1 Corinthians 3:9). He also referred to himself as a wise master builder who laid the foundation(1 Corinthians 3:10). Apostle Paul understood that his specialty was to lay the foundation of Christian doctrine.
In today’s scripture, we see the six components that form the foundation of Christian doctrine. If a believer is deficient in understanding these, he has a faulty foundation and might find cracks and instability in his building.
Repentance from dead works is a very important element of the Christian foundation. I have heard certain modern preachers teach that repentance doesn’t have to do with one’s conduct but just with a change of mind towards God. That’s only half true. There is repentance towards God and, as we see in today’s scripture, there’s “repentance from dead works”. If a person begins to believe in God but does not forsake his sinful ways, he has not truly believed.
Go into today remembering that if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? Many believers(who have been declared righteous because of faith in Christ) are struggling spiritually because of a faulty foundation.
Prayer: Lord, in this season, please do remedial work in the foundation of many. Amen.
