  • This Melchizedek Devotional

    Hebrews 7:1

    Read the account of Melchizedek and Abraham found in Genesis 14:17–24 in preparation for our study over the next few days.

  • Source of Salvation Devotional

    Hebrews 5:9–10

    The Father, like He did with Christ, often uses suffering to set us apart for His work even though we cannot always see how He is doing this while the suffering is taking place.

  • Confidence in Christ Devotional

    Hebrews 4:14

    The book of Hebrews tells us to hold to our confession of faith not because we are able to do so but because Christ’s power will make us stand firm.

  • Sharing in Christ Devotional

    Hebrews 3:14–15

    A majority of Americans claim to be born again Christians. The sin in our country makes it hard to take these claims seriously.

Pray that God would continue to sustain your faith in Him. View Resource

  • The Faithful Son Devotional

    Hebrews 3:5­­–6

    One recurring theme in Scripture is the already and the not-yet. Christ has already laid the foundation of God’s house through His death and resurrection.

    Christ never sinned in any way, shape, or form — nor could He. His faithfulness even unto death means that we can receive salvation.

  • Made Like His Brothers Devotional

    Hebrews 2:17

    One of the greatest mysteries of the faith is the Incarnation. How Jesus could be both fully God and fully man at the same time is incomprehensible to us.

  • Unity of the Sanctified Devotional

    Hebrews 2:11–13

    The Bible tells us that Christ is at the same time both fully God and fully man.

In prayer, thank Jesus for sharing in our frailty that we might one day share in His glory. View Resource

  • Lower Than the Angels Devotional

    Hebrews 2:5–8a

  • The Witness of God Devotional

    Hebrews 2:3b–4

    In today’s church, there is often a preoccupation with the supernatural as an end in and of itself.

Ask yourself if you are in danger of seeking the supernatural in a way that is not concerned with the trustworthiness of Scripture. View Resource
