Summary: Listen to Jesus and do as he leads.
LET US GO ON
Hebrews 6: 1 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,
2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
3 And this will we do, if God permit.
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
If saints could look ahead and just see a little of what God has in store for us in the future
We would be hunting a place to serve our Lord.
1. Leaving the ways of sin.
Isaiah 55: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Condemnation for sin is gone through Jesus Christ.

Our judgments for sin were concur at Calvary.
2. Learn what God has for us and his will for us.
John 7: 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
