Monday of the 2nd Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 6:1-12

ShareHebrews 6:1-12 Once again, the writer of Hebrews gives us a terrible warning about the ultimate sin of apostasy, or turning from God, having once been enlightened.  Lest we become too snug and smug in our faith, we must remember the real possibility of our falling away from God.  This is not a merely hypothetical […]

Saturday of 1st Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 4:14-5:14

ShareHebrews 4:14-5:14 Do you remember the vision of Jesus Christ that St. John had in Revelation 1?  I want that image to be seared into your memory forever.  Maybe we should all go out and stare at the sun for a few seconds to remind us of who Jesus really is.  He is not the […]

Friday of 1st Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 4:1-13

ShareHebrews 4:1-13 Having chronic fatigue, rest is one thing I can definitely relate to.  It makes me tired just to think about it.  And yet what a heavenly concept! Unfortunately, we are a culture and a people who can find no rest. Despite having more leisure than most people have had and despite having labor-saving […]

Thursday of 1st Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 3

ShareHebrews 3 Good day, partakers of Jesus Christ!  Partakers, that is, if you hold the beginning of your confidence steadfast to the end and if you do not depart from the living God.  But I am persuaded of better things for you. God has called you to be a partaker of Jesus Christ.  If you […]

Wednesday of 1st Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 2:9-18

ShareHebrews 2:9-18 Jesus Christ, the God-man, is a mystery, but thankfully a mystery that God Himself has revealed to us.  The God who made Himself man for us continues to amaze and mystify us.  More important, He continues to save us! In Chapter 1, the writer of Hebrews composed a superb description of the supremacy […]

Tuesday of 1st Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 2:1-8

ShareHebrews 2:1-8 Beginning in verse 5, the writer of Hebrews continues His theme of the glory of Christ.  He does so by quoting from Psalm 8, and in so doing, he provides us with a key hermeneutic tool to interpret the Psalms.  Who is the “man” of Psalm 8?  It seems, like so many of […]

Monday in 1st Sunday after Easter – Hebrews 1

ShareHebrew 1 Get your hymnals out now, because at the end of this meditation, you ought to feel like singing songs of praise to Jesus Christ! He is God’s Final Word to us (the “last days” actually occurred in the 1st century, according to the writer of Hebrews), who are to live by every word […]

Saturday of Easter Week – Revelation 7:9-17

ShareRevelation 7:9-17 Who our heroes are tell us a lot about ourselves.  The heroes of a culture are the people we look up to, the people who inspire us.  They are the people we want to be like and try to imitate.  Judging from money and attention paid to people in our culture, and judging […]

Friday of Easter Week – Revelation 1:4-18

ShareRevelation 1:4-18 Who is Jesus Christ? There are many ways in which He has revealed Himself to us, and all of these are important.  Sometimes I think the dominant way contemporary Christians see Jesus is as a good friend.  He’s kinda just one of the guys, though definitely the leader of the pack.  We can […]
