The main point of this sobering passage is the hortatory subjunctive in v. 1: "let us go on to maturity." The remainder of vv. 1-2 explain how (or how not) to go on to maturity. The author's overall tone in 5:11-6:8 is one of sober warning, yet he offers a word of confidence and hope in v. 3 that explains his injunction to press on to maturity. Verses 4-8 ground the exhortation of v. 1 by illustrating the dire situation of people who have experienced God's blessing but do not persevere till the end. It is "impossible to restore again to repentence" such people, since they are found to be openly shaming the Son of God and crucifying him all over again. They are likened in vv. 7-8 to ground receiving the blessing of God that produces only thorns and thistles and shows itself to be worthless.
