Hebrews seems to be a book that I have in the past attempted to read multiple times, yet I have never seemed to quite get it. It is a life-giving book rooted in deep and sometimes confusing theology.
Hebrews was a book written to a large audience, mostly to believers. It was written to encourage believers to stand firm on Christ’s Divinity, rather than falling for other false doctrines.
The Thing that hits me the most is that sometimes we do not realize the power and the greatness that comes with what Jesus did on the cross. It should break us daily. The message of the gospel should inspire us to live our lives passionately following our savior and telling others about his unending grace.
The book of Hebrews goes through and proves the validity of Christ as a prophet, as a priest, and as a King. The covenant in the Old Testament was not removed through Christ’s coming, but rather it was fulfilled. The book ends with giving encouragement to stay faithful to what God has called us to do.
All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.
