Friday of Easter 3 – Hebrews 11:1-16

ShareHebrews 11:1-16             Faith is a mysterious thing.  It wasn’t always so, when I was a kid.  Back then (I’m still a big kid in some ways), like so many things, it just was.  Growing up in a strong Christian home, believing in God was like believing in the air.  I didn’t always give a […]

Thursday of 3rd Sunday in Easter – Hebrews 10:26-39

ShareHebrews 10:26-39 This morning’s passage, Hebrews 10:26-39 is both one of the most frightening passages of Scripture and one of the most comforting. I guess that means that the writer of Hebrews has done a good job of portraying the gospel, that is, who God is and what He has done, because there are two […]

Saturday of the 2nd Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 9:1-14

ShareHebrews 9:1-14 There is so much more in Hebrews 9 than meets the eye that I’m at a loss for how to meditate on it in a short time.  The entire book of Hebrews, and this chapter in some ways in particular, reveal the need for Bible study – not to gather random facts but […]

Friday of the 2nd Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 8

ShareHebrews 8  The point that the writer of Hebrews is making is so important to him (and to us), that he continues with his point that Jesus Christ, our High Priest, is in heaven ministering for us. It would be easy, too easy, to have acknowledged this incredible truth yesterday, and then to go on […]

Thursday of 2nd Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 7:12-28

ShareHebrews 7:12-28 The priests of the Old Testament were held in high regard by the Israelites – and with good reason.  It was the priests, taken from the tribe of Levi, who stood before God on behalf of the people and offered sacrifices before God for the sins of the people.  It was the priests, […]

Wednesday of the 2nd Sunday after Easter, 2015 – Hebrews 7:1-11

ShareHebrews 7:1-11 Quick – who was the person in the Old Testament who was the closest to God? That was a question a Sunday school teacher of mine once asked.  Some said Moses and some said David (I think some said Abraham – I’m not sure.)  Wanting to be different and not give the same […]

Tuesday of the 2nd Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 6:13-20

ShareHebrews 6:13-20 I am definitely a landlubber.  I’ve rarely gone out on the seas: to me, going out on a lake in someone else’s boat is pretty risky business.  It’s with good reason that the Sea in the Bible is often used to represent evil or danger.  We can have some measure of how dangerous […]
