Hebrews 6:11-20, part 3 (Tuesday 10/27/20)

Jews were keeping “the law” in order to get to heaven and that’s not how you get to heaven. The hope is in the promises that they inherited by Abraham. Abraham is an example of faith and patience in God’s promise. He waited 25 years from the time the promise was first made until Isaac, the promised son, was born. The Lord confirmed His oath to Abraham by swearing by Himself because He alone is beyond deceit. The two immutable…

“ABCs of the Faith” – Hebrews 6, Part 1 (Tuesday 10/13/20)

Hebrews 6:1-3 is reminding the Jewish followers to move past the ABC’s of the Faith. The Jews wanted to remain in Judaism which was like a picture of Christ.

“Faith in Jesus is the Rest” – Hebrews 4, Part 1 (Tuesday 9/15/20)

In Hebrews chapter 4, Paul reminds the Jews that there is rest in Jesus through faith. In verse 8 Paul shows that Joshua still speaks of a future rest so entering the promise land was not the rest.

Learn how Jesus is not only different than Moses, but why He is better than Moses. Jesus was better in His Person; in His ministry; and in the rest He gives us. In His Person He a son in the house of God not a servant, in His ministry He is both an apostle and high priest, in His rest… we find freedom from the bondage of sin.

Hebrews 2, part 1 (Tuesday 8/25/20)

Hebrews Chapter 2:1-4 Know the truth in Christ. If you have gifts of the Holy Spirit, you are able to love all people. Pay attention to God’s Word; obey. Do you pay close attention to your salvation? The whole bible is about the gospel. Jews were missing the mark. They wanted Jesus plus works–following temple practices. Jesus finished it. Christians can’t escape unrepentant sin. The gift is the work of Christ through you as a witness. Take your gifts and…
