Hebrews, Check

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I finished Hebrews yesterday, and it ends so well: 
Keep on loving each other as brothers.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Hebrews 13:1, 5, 8 and 16
And then wouldn't this be the perfect way to pray over someone, or even, for yourself:
May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Hebrews 13:20-21
I am continuing to read the Bible in my own random way. I pick a book and read it slowly. At some point I will have read them all, and probably a few of them more than once. For example, I've read Ruth a number of times, but Revelation still intimidates me. I haven't approached it yet. 

How do you read the Bible?

  1. Dear Courtney
    I want to introdoce you to James Fowler (Christ In You) ministries. He is an excellent Bible teacher and he has an incredibly good series on Revelation. i am busy with his Galatian series and find it very good. You can download most of his work as a Pdf file. He has a whole series on Hebrews too that I want to tackle after Galatians.

    1. Thank you, Mia! I look forward to checking it out.

  2. I'm reading in the Psalms, then something from the Old Testament and then something from the New. I love the book of Hebrews!

    1. That is a good way to do it, Debbie. I read Psalms last summer and it was such a pleasure to read through it, slowly. It really ties so much together, doesn't it? I can imagine that really comes through when you are reading it the way you are. Great tip.

  3. you know I have always been in that bible study or that bible study and that would be my focus. Then, I took a break from a study and at first felt lost. I then started doing the 'reading the bible in a year' thing. I have stayed caught up and can I just tell you I've been in soooooo much shock. Reading the old testament like this has been like reading a novel. I am hook lined and sinkered. It's been a very different journey and then at the end I can say, I read the whole bible, this I know! The thing is about this is that it is the Living Word so when I go to do it again it will be all different (smile)

    1. Yes, you are so right, Marlece! I also get caught up in different Bible studies, and then sometimes want to do my own thing - like read Hebrews, or whatever. I just finished a Bible study of the OT, and oh my - it is riveting. I completely agree. I keep thinking that "one day" I will do the "Bible in a year" thing, and I will. Just not this year :)

  4. Just today, I read a hunk of Hebrews and find that God brings so much to light as our hearts are ready. I love the Word, but scatter my life in and around it when I should be focused on it consistently. You have encouraged me tonight. I am grateful.
