Hebrews 11:8

to obey is better than sacrifice / obedience is better than sacrifice * December 20, 2019 – Friday Hebrews 11:8  NIV 8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

Hebrews 4:9-11

to obey is better than sacrifice / obedience is better than sacrifice * December 18, 2019 – Wednesday Hebrews 4:9-11  NIV 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;  10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from His.  11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. Comments Continuing from yesterday, we see one more example of how…

to obey is better than sacrifice / obedience is better than sacrifice * December 17, 2019 – Tuesday   Hebrews 4:4-7a  NIV 4 For somewhere He has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “On the seventh day God rested from all His works.” (Genesis 2:2)  5 And again in the passage above He says, “They shall never enter My rest.” 6 Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to…

Hebrews 4:1-3

to obey is better than sacrifice / obedience is better than sacrifice * December 16, 2019 – Monday Hebrews 4:1-3  NIV 1  Therefore, since the promise of entering His rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.  2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith…

Hebrews 3:16-19

to obey is better than sacrifice / obedience is better than sacrifice * December 13, 2019 – Friday Hebrews 3:16-19  NIV 16 Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?  17 And with whom was He angry for forty years?

Hebrews 2:1-4

to obey is better than sacrifice / obedience is better than sacrifice * December 12, 2019 – Thursday Hebrews 2:1-4  NIV 1 We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.  2 For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment,  3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed…

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…
