Lesson 6/Day 8 Today is a special Create & Share edition of our Bible study. We will take time to think through Hebrews 6:19-20. You'll summarize a passage then illustrate your thoughts. Use the lesson to help guide your thoughts to understand whom the author is speaking to, what the hope is that he is referring to, and what we can learn about Jesus In this passage. I look forward to seeing your create and share, so be sure to share them on social media with the hashtags: #DwellingRichly #lmccwomen #RadiantBibleStudy
Lesson 6/Day 7 Lesson 6/Days 7 & 8 The author brings his audience back to Abraham, and with that, a tender reminder of family and the sense that we’re together in this. While you, as a 21st century American Christian, might not feel the emotional tug at the mention of Abraham’s name, I believe the Hebrews hearing this message would have. The mention of Abraham would have been nearly synonymous with “promise” - the two are inseparable. Let's study more today...
Lesson 6/Day 6 What a beautiful reminder today that God wants us both sharp in the word and showing love for His name, and what a powerful reminder also that we can and should have not just assurance but “full assurance of hope until the end.” If you ever doubt your salvation or question whether you are truly inheriting the promise, look no further than Hebrews chapter six. Have you repented and shared in the Holy Spirit? Then you should be earnest for the Word and desiring to grow and teach and showing love for His name in serving the saints. Your assurance isn’t because of your works, it is demonstrated in your works because God is at work in you. If you are not assured in your salvation, then today is the day. Don’t harden your heart. Consider Jesus and give Him your heart today.
Lesson 6/Day 5 Hebrews 6:4-8 is one of the most serious passages in all of Scripture laying out the most perilous of consequences! Is the author speaking to people who weren’t ever really Christians? Is he speaking to Christians who are in jeopardy of losing their salvation forever? What about the warning? Is it that those who have fallen away – apostates – can’t come back? Will their end be “to be burned?” Believers can be burned up in the end? What?!!? Could this happen to you? It’s a frightening prospect – I hope it is. We’ll dig in to these verses today, and I’ll be addressing these questions in the online study session for this day! Remember, you can join me every day “Live or Later” as we go through each lesson together. Tune in! On Day 4 we flew over Hebrews 6:4-8. Today, let’s look more closely.
Lesson 6/Day 4 If you came across a memo that read, “You all are not meeting the expectations around here. These messes have got to stop. We’ve gone over this before and if it doesn’t change, big consequences are coming for each of you.” What assumptions would you make about the author? She knows the people she’s dealing with? She’s in charge and has influence? What assumptions would you make about the recipients? They know better? They are aware of the expectations? If you found out that the memo was a Post-It note that your friend put on her fridge addressing her toddlers...what would you think? Pretty harsh, right? Overkill for kiddos, right? She needs some decaf, right? If, however, it was a memo on the fridge in the break room at a corporate office, written from an executive and directed to senior staffers, you’d nod and think they’d better get their act together, right? Knowing the audience and the author made the difference. The same goes here in our study of Hebrews. Unlike the other epistles of the Bible, Hebrews doesn’t open with the typical greeting. With no formal greeting to a specific group of people anywhere in Hebrews, we get to play detective and collect information as we read. BEFORE YOU BEGIN: In the introduction to this Bible study I asked that you NOT use any commentaries or even the notes in your Bible. I’m going to reiterate that request as you enter in to today’s lesson. Trust the Holy Spirit. Just. Read. The. Word.
Join me for this great study through Hebrews! Lesson 6/Day 3 Yesterday we looked at the six areas that the author of Hebrews wants mature believers to be established in. How’s your understanding of these six concepts? The author of Hebrews had a warning for his audience because they didn’t have a grasp of them. Do you? Let’s look a little closer at each one and see how we are doing in our personal maturity and understanding Download the study at www.lamiradachurch.com.
