Bible Reading Challenge Week 36 Day 1

Our reading challenge for the day is Hebrews 11-13. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

Hebrews 11 - We receive life from God by faith, just like those of old did. This chapter is sometimes called the “Hall of Faith” like a “Hall of Fame.” All these lived and died in faith. They did not receive the promise.

Hebrews 12 - We also live by faith, looking to Jesus who has overcome sin and is seated at God’s right hand. We live by faith in righteousness even receiving chastisement and discipline so we can grow in grace. Again we are warned not to depart from faith in Jesus.

Hebrews 13 - Because Jesus has redeemed us we live a life which reflects his perfection. All we do is motivated by Jesus and his forgiving love for us.
