Study The Book of the Bible – Hebrews
FYI–Wordpress.com took away my settings under my previous theme (Chateau) and would not replace them so I had to quickly choose and set up this theme. Sorry for the change…
Use the SOAP method to study a verse that speaks to you from each chapter.
Hebrews 10:23 (NIV)
(I would recommend that you read the complete chapter of each study verse so that you can put the chosen verse(s) into context.)
BIBLE (Version NIV)
SCRIPTURE: (Write it out): Hebrews 10:23 : “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who has promised is faithful.”
OBSERVATION (What I learned): The first part of Chapter 10 continues to speak about the new covenant from God and compares the new covenant to the old covenant with prior high priests. It shares the supposed conversation between God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit (The Trinity). The second half speaks about perseverance in faith for those who follow the new covenant and believe in Jesus’ sacrifice once for all for the sins of mankind so that He could be the intercessor for us who believe and follow Jesus. Verse 23 speaks specifically of Christians holding to the hope of everlasting life with Jesus because He is faithful who has promised.
APPLICATION (to my life): I can hold firmly to the understanding of Christ’s eternal sacrifice that made it possible for my sins to be forgiven. His sacrifice makes it possible for me to hold on, follow Him, become more like Him and eventually be with Him in heaven. I repeat that it is my responsibility with my salvation from Jesus Christ, to listen to Him and the Holy Spirit in my daily life as I learn to live through Christ. As I follow Christ, He leads me to testify to others of my belief and hope and faith in Him.
Prayer (use scripture as a guide): Lord God, this Chapter told me more about Your sacrifice and why it was necessary. You ultimate sacrifice of blood on the cross so that I can have eternal life with You. As I learn from Your word and the Holy Spirit, I can speak and teach others about your sacrifice for us. I praise You, Christ, for Your sacrifice for me. I praise and thank you for what You have done for countless millions like me. Thank You and Praise You. Please continue to move for an unspoken request for my family.
