Then he said, "I tell all of you with certainty, unless you change and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom from heaven.
Instead, by speaking the truth in love, we will grow up completely and become one with the head, that is, one with the Messiah,
In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
I tell all of you with certainty, whoever doesn't receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it."
Brothers, stop being childish in your thinking. Be like infants with respect to evil, but think like adults.
Is not my dynasty like this with God? Has he not made an eternal covenant with me, preparing every detail of it? And he has made it secure, including my complete salvation, has he not? He has been of continual help, has he not, even with respect to all of my desires?
But the righteous person will hold to his way, and those with clean hands will grow stronger and stronger."
The Law of the LORD is perfect, restoring life. The testimony of the LORD is steadfast, making foolish people wise.
The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that grows brighter until the full light of day.
Let us know, let us pursue knowledge of the LORD; his coming is as certain as the dawn. He will come to us like the rain, like the autumn and spring rains come on the earth.
I will be like the dew to Israel; Israel will blossom like a lily, growing roots like the cedars of Lebanon.
Those who live under its protection will surely return. Their grain will flourish; they will blossom like a vine, and Israel's scent will be like wine from Lebanon.
But the Sun of Righteousness will arise with healing in its light for those who fear my name. You will go out and leap like calves released from their stalls
Therefore, through baptism we were buried with him into his death so that, just as the Messiah was raised from the dead by the Father's glory, we too may live an entirely new life.
Brothers, I couldn't talk to you as spiritual people but as worldly people, as mere infants in the Messiah.
In union with him the whole building is joined together and rises into a holy sanctuary for the Lord.
Brothers, at all times we are obligated to thank God for you. It is right to do this because your faith is growing all the time and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.
For you have been born again, not by a seed that perishes but by one that cannot perish by the living and everlasting word of God.
Instead, continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Messiah. Glory belongs to him both now and on that eternal day! Amen.
