When we think about spiritual things there is always danger that we think like men instead of like God.
Theological truth cannot enter the mind as a separate substance or as an experience complete in itself. It must be grasped by the mind in an act of response; and the response is conditioned by everything that has gone before in the learner"s life. Whether or not we are conscious of doing so, we invariably add something to the truth as it enters (or take something away) to make it...
Bible Verses: Hebrews 6:4-6
For Reading and Meditation: Psalm 36:1-12
How wonderful it is, in an age where unfaithfulness abounds, to focus our gaze on those Scriptures that point to the trustworthiness of our God. The one before us today is quite wonderful, but consider also these: "O Lord God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you" (

For Reading and Meditation: 2 Corinthians 13:1-14
As we conclude our study of the Beatitudes it is time for us to take a simple test. Ask yourself the following questions and see how many of Christ's "beautiful attitudes" have been assimilated into your life: 1. Am I trying to grasp things from God's hands or are my hands relaxed and empty so that I might...
Bible Verses: 2 Corinthians 13:1-14Ephesians 4:1-15Hebrews 6:12 Peter 3:18
For Reading and Meditation: Hebrews 6:1-12
Quietly we are coming to see that it is only as we learn to dwell at God's right hand in fellowship with Christ that we can experience true happiness and joy. Despite the clear teaching of Jesus that happiness is a by-product of righteousness (becoming more and more like Christ), there are still thousands of Christians...

For Reading and Meditation: Hebrews 6:1-20
Out of all the aspects of truth that surround the fact of our Lord's ascension, one of the greatest is surely this - Christ is our Precursor. A precursor is really a forerunner - an advance runner - and that is precisely the term which our text for today applies to the climactic ministry of our ascended Lord. The NIV...
Bible Verses: Hebrews 6:1-20Hebrews 2:10John 17:24John 17:1-26John 1:12Galatians 4:71 Corinthians 15:39-44
WHATEVER Jesus did was for His people. He is gone into heaven as our Forerunner; as the PIONEER goes before the army to remove obstacles, clear the road, and render the march more easy, so did Jesus go before us. As an interested and kind friend, He shows the practicability of the way; as a wise GUIDE, He marks out the road for us; as our example, He is gone before, and says to us, "FOLLOW ME." We have now an ADVOCATE with the Father, a HUSBAND preparing our mansions, a SAVIOUR waiting to...
Bible Verses: Hebrews 6:20
LET us inquire. What are they? Do we possess them? Spiritual life, evidenced by convictions of sin; crying to God for deliverance from sin; groaning under the weight of the body of sin and death. A tender conscience, which trembles at sin, and feels deeply for God's glory. A filial fear of God, lest we should dishonour His name, disgrace His cause, and grieve His love. An anxiety and deep-rooted concern for holiness, both in the heart and the life. Contrition or brokenness of heart for sin,...
Bible Verses: Hebrews 6:9
But he patiently endured. He did not question God's veracity, nor limit His power, nor doubt His faithfulness, nor grieve His love: but he bowed to divine sovereignty, submitted to infinite wisdom, and was silent under delays, waiting the Lord's time. And so, having patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
God's promises cannot fail of their accomplishment. Patient waiters cannot be disappointed. Believing expectations shall be realized. Beloved, Abraham's...
Bible Verses: Hebrews 6:15
The omnipotence of God means that He can do anything that is not inconsistent with His other attributes. Hear the uniform testimony of Scripture! "I am the Almighty God" (Genesis 17:1). "Is anything too hard for the Lord?" (Genesis 18:14). "I know that thou canst do all things, and that no purpose of thine can be thwarted" (Job 42:2 NASB). "There is nothing...

Sometimes words in the Christian vocabulary have a different meaning than they have in ordinary usage. "Hope" is one of those words.
As far as the world is concerned, to hope often means to look forward to something unseen but with no certainty of fulfillment. A man in deep financial trouble may say, "I hope everything will turn out all right," but he has no assurance that it will. His hope may be nothing but wishful thinking. The Christian hope also looks forward to something unseen,...
