What I read today;
Exodus 21; 2 Kings 3-4; Psalm 65; Isaiah 65; Acts 3; Hebrews 5-6
Hebrews 5 and 6 offer us two glimpses into the character of God that provide us with comfort and joy for all times.
Hebrews 5 vs. 7-10 tell us about how our Savior Jesus saves us by his perfect life and obedience!
“In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.” ESV
In Hebrews 6 vs. 13-20, we hear about the God whose character will not allow him to lie. His promises are true and unbreakable! Because of that, we can always trust that our salvation is secure!
“For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise.For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
