Hebrews 13:9

Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. Hebrews 13:9 As the book of Hebrews comes to a conclusion a number of exhortations are provided. This may be one of the most important though no special attention is given to it. We are to keep our eyes and hearts focused on…

Hebrews 12:4-7

4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. 5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when He rebukes you, 6 because the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He chastens everyone He accepts as his son.” 7 Endure hardship as…

Hebrews 12:1-3

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider Him who…

Hebrews 10:15-22

15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: 16 “This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.” 17 Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” 18 And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary. 19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we…

Hebrews 8:10

This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Hebrews 8:10 The verse today comes from Jeremiah 31:33 which as you can see is virtually identical. “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will…

Hebrews 4:7-13

7 God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their labors, just…

Hebrews 3:12

See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. Hebrews 3:12 NIV Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. Hebrews 3:12 KJV Watch out, brothers, lest there be in some of you an evil, unbelieving heart, with the result that you fall away from the living God. Hebrews 3:12 LEB Today we go…

Hebrews 3:7-11

7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness, 9 where your ancestors tested and tried me, though for forty years they saw what I did. 10 That is why I was angry with that generation; I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.’ 11 So I declared on…

7 Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people. 12 I am sending him—who is my very heart—back to you. 13 I would have liked to keep him with me so that he could take your place in helping me while I am in chains for the gospel. 14 But I did not want to do anything without your consent, so that any favor you do would not…

2 Timothy 2:22 Part 2

22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 NIV 22 So, flee the passions of youth; and, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart, pursue righteousness, faithfulness, love and peace. 2 Timothy 2:22 CJB Readers’ Comments If you want my comments on this verse, go back to your Friday email or look online…

Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22 NIV So, flee the passions of youth; and, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart, pursue righteousness, faithfulness, love and peace. 2 Timothy 2:22 CJB I’m sure I am not the only one who has wondered how in the world I am to Flee the evil…
1 Timothy

1 Timothy 1:5

The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1 Timothy 1:5 NIV But the purpose of the authoritative command is love out of a pure heart and a clear conscience and faith without hypocrisy. *with the Jewish words translated 1 Timothy 1:5 OJB* What command is Paul writing about in his letter to Timothy in this verse? 3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia,…
