One of my favorite places in the city is Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party. It’s a cozy, sometimes crowded, hole in the book-lined wall. That’s where we’re meeting today for tea.
What’s in my cup: I’m not really sure what I’m drinking. To be honest I came for the scones and clotted cream. They’re amazing!
What’s on my mind: I don't mean to sound all super spiritual but Hebrews...more specifically Hebrews 5:11-6:12.
While I was reading last week the following questions danced in my head and I haven’t been able to shake them:
Sure, I lead a small group but how much of the Bible do I really know? (5:11-12)
Yeah, I grew up in a Christian home but how many years of my life did I spend re-crucifying Christ in my rebellion? And is it possible I could do it all again? (6:4-6)
Have I become lazy? Are there really any godly women in my life that I want to imitate? (6:12)
Those are only a few.
I don’t have a neat bow to tie around all those thoughts. However, the section title sums it up for me as a Warning Against Falling Away (NIV) or A Call to Spiritual Growth (NLT).
Nancy Guthrie once wrote "If your faith is real it should be growing. The growth may not be in dramatic spurts, and you may still have a long way to go, but ongoing growth is a critical sign of a spiritual life".
Who’s on my heart: You, silly! That’s why I scheduled this date. Don’t you think it’s long over due? How’s your spiritual life? How can I pray for you?
