Good morning!! This verse in Hebrews 6 popped out to me this morning.
Enlightened — those who have EXPERIENCED
the GOOD THINGS of heaven
and shared in the Holy Spirit,
who have tasted the goodness of the word of God
and the power of the age to come
Actually speaking of one who knows God and chooses to walk away, the words highlighted stuck out. Experienced good things. I'm sure there are many people who wonder why Christians continue to serve and "archaic" image of God. Because we've EXPERIENCED good things.
When people go through trials and the world wonders why it can happen to good people. We've experienced good things.
When people continue on in the faith when all seems improbable, we've experienced many good things.
I'm an experiential learner, and have experienced Jesus in a very real and personal way. I share daily in the Holy Spirit and the goodness of the word of God. Life WITH God is always sweeter than life "without". My daily prayer is for many more to have their own personal experience and experience the goodness of God.
