Open you eyes to Faith (Hebrews 11:1-7)

Posted on

What is faith? Verse one defines it: Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. For many this looks like wearing a blindfold and walking off a cliff. It’s true that some people treat faith like that, but not if you’re a Christian. From the Christian […]

We’ll review (again) the basis of relating to God. The crux of the letter is about this matter and if the writer gives that much time to the subject it is because it deserves our attention. He wants to help us see that the security and certainty of the relationship comes when we relate to […]

Really Relate (Hebrews 9-10)

Approaching God to know Him If we accept that God exists, can we know him? We return to this topic about knowing to God. Why do we keep talking about it? Because we need certainty in our relationships, even with God. Christianity affirms that we can know God personally. Religion in general does not have […]

Better than a Mirror (Hebrews 7-8)

Who can really know God? You! This week we return to the subject of priesthood. If we accept that God exists, how can I be sure that God recognises me? I know that there are people who do not believe that God exists, and other people who think that God exists but we can not […]

Don’t be lazy! Maturity doesn’t happen by accident. Look at what it says at the beginning and at the end of the reading. In 5.11: We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In 6.12: We do not want […]

The Priest that You Need (Hebrews 4:16-5:10)

Posted on

Relate to God? As I mentioned to you last week, let’s think about the concept of priesthood. Why? Because the issue is about how to relate to God. It may be that you do not believe in God and I’m glad that you are here. I’d like to know you better and know your history. […]

1. The word like a knife This section from Hebrews gives us the image of the word of God as if it were a sword or a very sharp knife. A sword that can penetrate to the most intimate part of a person. I don’t have a sword, but here I have two knives. Notice […]

Context Up to this point, the author of the letter to the Hebrews has spoken about the superiority of Jesus because he is the Creator (1:2) and that he was made like one of us (2:17). He is our source of our being and he is the one who understands what it is like to […]

Better than angels… better than humans? We have been encouraged to see that Jesus is the best messenger and message. Well, at least he’s better than angels. Is he better than another human? It’s that until now the people of God had always given that honour to Moses. For us it may not seem to […]

Hugged by a Superhero (Hebrews 2:5-3:1)

Posted on

Last week we thought about the superiority of Jesus as the messenger and message of God. Listening to Jesus gives us the voice of God in high fidelity stereo. The problem: Can you approach a superhero? But it can leave us a little uncomfortable. If Jesus is so superior, how can I approach him? Can […]
