A bowl of stew

A note on Hebrews 12:16

Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of stew, and so, Christians are warned not to sell their birthright in Christ for any sin. If a Christian wants to return to indulging his sin, then, like Esau, he has to sell his birthright to do so. That’s the cost, a very high price. He can’t have his cake and eat it too, it’s either one or the other, either Christ or sin. If a Christian wants to return to his old ways then the only way he can do that is to trample the Son of God under his feet.
