Convinced of better things

Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 5:11-14; 6:1-12 (day one)
“But beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you. . .though we are speaking in this way.”  (6:9)  He is the kind of Pastor I want to be.  The kind I need.  He is convinced, with the other church leaders, that his Hebrew/Christian friends could do better.  That God would make it possible for them to do so.  Not that he was naive to the challenges.  In 5:11 he points out how dull their hearts have become.  In 6:1 he outlines their duty to press forward into maturity.  In 6:4 he warns of the danger of being disqualified.  (We will talk more of this difficult paragraph this week)  However, despite the difficulties ahead, he is confident, convinced of better things!  “Now unto HIM who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy”  (Jude 24)  True Pastors see hope because they see HIM who is able.
