The Ultimate Sacrifice

So I haven’t blogged for a few days but I have continued my reading in Hebrews. Today I am in chapter 10. This chapter builds upon previous chapters which talked about Jesus being a high priest and spoke to the difference between the old laws animal sacrifices and the sacrifice that Christ made. In chapter [...]

Put Down The Fingerpaints

I love how The Message states verse 1 of Hebrews 6: So come on, let’s leave the preschool fingerpainting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ! (Hebrews 6:1MSG) It goes on to talk about the fact that we know the basic tenants of our faith and [...]

Today’s reading was Hebrews chapter 5. Quite honestly, there wasn’t something that jumped out at me in the readings but I felt that God wanted me to try something different today. If you have been reading along with me or reading my thoughts I’d love to know what God is doing in your life or [...]

What’s the Point?

John starts chapter five with a familiar theme….Love. He tells us to love God, love his son Jesus and love other believers – other children of God. Which is great and happy and is something a lot of people Believers and non-believers would probably agree with. He goes on to give us the reason why [...]

Love

It’s all abut love. 1 John 4 starts out with a warning against false prophets and how to know if someone that you are listening to for advice is speaking the truth of God or the truth of the world. Do they believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God came down in the [...]
