“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age…” (Hebrews 5:14)
Apostles are like a culinary chef in a fine restaurant serving up the Word of God to those who have come to eat. But he (she) must have discernment and wisdom to know best what to serve.
If he only serves milk-type meals, those he is called to minister to may remain immature babies, never growing up or becoming skillful in the word of righteousness.
If he gives them too much red meat at one time – too much meaty present truth – and doesn’t give them plenty of time to chew on it and digest it, they may soon be choking on it and need a Heimlich maneuver to revive, and then will quickly leave your restaurant for a place more safe and secure.
Apostles are called “wise master builders” and will know how to balance milk and meat in order to develop new converts into strong disciples skillful in righteousness with senses trained to discern good and evil.
