Bible Challenge – Hebrews 13

December 2, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Now may the God of peace — who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, and ratified an eternal covenant with his blood — 21 may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you,[e] through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.” v. 20-21 (NLT)

What a great challenge for all of us to strive for in this new year. Could you imagine what our life would look like if we were able to live this out in front of our family, friends, strangers and enemies? For this to happen, we need to apply and protect the things that are stated throughout this letter but summarized in chapter 13. Look at them with me:

  • Keep on Loving each other
  • Show Hospitality to strangers
  • Remember those in prison and the mistreated
  • Honor your marriage and stay faithful
    • Don’t get involved in immoral acts or commit adultery
  • Don’t love money
  • Be satisfied in what you have
  • Have confidence in the Lord
  • Remember your leaders
    • Think about and apply what they have taught you
    • Follow their good examples of Faith
  • Remember Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forever
  • Don’t get distracted by new or strange ideas
  • Strength comes from God’s GRACE, not rules!
  • Jesus made us Holy by offering His own body as a sacrifice for sin
  • Share with those in need
  • Obey your Spiritual Leaders
    • they are accountable to God for the way they lead
  • Pray for a clear conscience and lives that honor God
  • Pay Attention to what you have heard, read, and seen

Today, let’s not treat this as a check list, but as a guide to live so together we can encourage one another living for Christ and leading others to Him.
