Daily Devotional from Hebrews 13--Verse 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.It is so comforting that Jesus never changes. He isn’t loving one day and angry the next. He is faithful to remain gentle and lowly, loving and compassionate, a King of Kings. We can trust Jesus because he is the same yesterday, today and forever. We can count on him in peaceful times and turbulent ti...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 12--Verses 1-2Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at t...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 11--Verse 10[Abraham] was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.Abraham is known as the father of our faith. He’s a pretty significant guy. However, if you think about it, what did the man do? He basically walked around looking for a city. Doesn’t seem all that striking. But we honor him today, not for his triumphs, but fo...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 10--Verse 10And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all. It’s so amazing that Jesus has fulfilled the Law through His death and resurrection! This passage also states that “…it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.” Aren’t you glad that Jesus was the perfect sacrifice? That he h...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 9--Verse 28So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.Man, I’m so thankful for Jesus’ sacrifice. Could you imagine if we still had to sacrifice animals and sprinkle blood and do all the things the Israelites used to do? Because of Jesus, we don’t have t...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 8--Verse 12For I will forgive their wrongdoing, and I will never again remember their sins.Isn’t it so deeply wonderful that God is faithful? He forgives our sins. He can’t even recall them. Through our faith in the work of Jesus, his death and resurrection, our sins cannot be counted against us. They are forgotten, dismissed, as if they had never happened. Because of...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 6--Verse 10For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.Any good bank is going to keep track of every penny you invest. They don’t get to play fast and loose with your cash. And if they can take care of all details, don’t you think God is able to do so as well? Every act of servi...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 5--Verse 12For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food.The writer of Hebrews told the Hebrew Church that they had become “dull of hearing” and needed basic principles re-taught to them.Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in other things or to let apath...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 4-- Verses 9-11So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.Do you sabbath? This is something I would like to do better. Some weeks I’ve done great but it’s so easy t...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 3--Verses 13-14a…encourage each other daily, while it is still called “today”, so that none of you is hardened by sin’s deception. For we have become participants in Christ…Encouragement is so essential. We all long for encouragement from those around us. When we don’t get the encouragement we need from our faith community, we tend to seek it elsewhere, which can lead...

Daily Devotional from Hebrews 2--Verses 17-18Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.High priests in the Old Testament were responsible for interce...

Hebrews 13:5Keep your life free from love of money. One of the best ways of steering clear of the love of money is to faithfully tithe. Less is always more when you put it in the hands of God. He can do more with ninety percent than we can ever do with hundred. Unfortunately, we get afraid and start clutching. Tithing, however, rids you of fear and helps us declare that we have more than enough. T...

Hebrews 12:28-29Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. Sometimes we think worship is a time of singing songs led by a trendy band. But, no, no, no, worship is so much more. Read these verses slowly and meditatively to understand all that’s at stake. He’s pr...

Hebrews 11:10[Abraham] was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. Abraham is known as the father of our faith. He’s a pretty significant guy. However, if you think about it, what did the man do? Well, he basically walked around looking for a city. Doesn’t seem all that striking. But we honor him today, not for his triumphs, but for his trust. He truste...

Hebrews 10:24-25Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Meeting together as Christians should be one of our top priorities. It’s a New Testament mandate. But as the letter to the Hebrews tell us, even back then, some Christians made a h...

Hebrews 9:13-14For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ… purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? The blood of bulls is nothing to be compared with the blood of Jesus. So, if an animal sacrifice was enough to appease divine justice for a time, what...

Hebrews 8:10I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Is obedience a ‘have to’ or a ‘get to’? If it’s a ‘have to’ then God’s laws are simply external – chiseled on slabs of stone. But if obedience is a ‘get to’ then God’s laws have been internalized – written on heart and mind. Where do you stand today? Is obedience o...

Hebrews 7:25He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. You may have heard the work of Jesus was finished at the cross. Well, not quite. The work, in one sense, was complete, but, in another, it’s very much ongoing. This verse tells us that Jesus ever lives to make intercession for you and me. When you go to bed a...

Hebrews 5:1For every high priest chosen among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God. Prophets go to the people on behalf of God. However, priests go to God on behalf of the people. And do you know Jesus goes to God on behalf of you? That’s right! He is your high priest. He is your advocate. He is your defense attorney. He stands by your side and maintains your cause. And when...

Hebrews 2:1We must pay closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. One of the podcasts I enjoy listening to is Craig Groeschel on leadership. Recently he told his listeners, “If you’re not intentionally preparing for growth, you’re unintentionally preparing for decline.” Isn’t that the truth? Unless we choose to be intentional, we will always drift towards complacency. It’s...

Hebrews 1:3He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. Hebrews 1, John 1, Colossians 1, Revelation 1– All great books of the New Testament seem to open with a jaw-dropping revelation of Jesus. It’s essential we know who He is. And one of the greatest things you can enjoy is a total immersion in the Gospels: Matth...
