• Are Miracles for Today? Devotional

    Hebrews 2:1–4

    Dr. Sproul notes that there is no word for “miracle” in the original languages of Scripture. Our English term miracle translates Hebrew and Greek terms that are more literally rendered as “signs” or “wonders.” That shows that miracles are not merely to meet the physical needs of people but rather to point beyond themselves to authenticate a word from God. The Lord is not delivering new special revelation, so miracles are not happening. But God still intervenes supernaturally in His creation. View Resource

  • So Great a Salvation Devotional

    Hebrews 2:1–3a

    The great message of salvation revealed in Christ brings with it great responsibility. If we neglect it and fall away, our punishment will be immeasurable. In prayer, thank God for the great salvation He has given us, and confess your need for Him to give you the ability to remain faithful to the Gospel. View Resource

  • 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. Many forget that miracles were designed primarily to verify the credibility of the apostolic witness. 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

  • Lower Than the Angels Devotional

    Hebrews 2:5–8a

    In His humiliation, Christ fulfilled God’s intent for man to be the perfect ruler of the earth. Christ is highly exalted and will one day enable us to rule with Him. As you go about your daily business, thank God for this humiliation and ask Him to make you a good ruler of your present kingdom in anticipation of the ruler that you will be. View Resource

  • All Things Under Christ Devotional

    Hebrews 2:8b–9

    In His great wisdom, God has accomplished salvation for us but has decided to not yet apply all of its benefits. One of these benefits is the full and complete manifestation of His reign which is still yet to come. Seek how you can make manifest the reign of God in your daily life and pray for the kingdom to come. View Resource

  • The Founder of Salvation Devotional

    Hebrews 2:10

    The Bible teaches us that Jesus is our Prophet, Priest, and King. Sadly, many do not confess Christ because they do not understand that a suffering priest is required for their redemption. Reflect on Jesus’ priestly suffering and ask the Holy Spirit to make you continually aware of your need for this work. View Resource

  • 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. Though we cannot explain how this is so, it is unspeakably awesome that the Lord of the Universe did not think it beneath Himself to take on a human nature. In prayer, thank Jesus for sharing in our frailty that we might one day share in His glory. View Resource

  • Our Deliverer Devotional

    Hebrews 2:14–15

    Christians know that Christ has already destroyed the devil and the power of death that he held. Because of this, we know that physical death will one day be eliminated as well. Thank Christ for His victory over the devil and remember that those who follow Christ need not fear death because He has rescued us from it. View Resource

  • A True Man Devotional

    Hebrews 2:14–18

    The humanity of Christ is essential to our salvation, as only a human being can pay the price for the sins of human beings. There are other benefits as well. Hebrews 2:18 tells us that Jesus can help us when we are tempted because He, too, was tempted in His humanity. Let us rejoice that God provided an atonement for our sins, and let us turn to Jesus when we feel the weight of temptation, for He will provide a way out. View Resource

  • Abraham’s Offspring Devotional

    Hebrews 2:16

    God promised to bless the world through Abraham’s seed. Christians receive this blessing because they are in Christ. Many have not heard the Good News about God’s blessing upon the seed of Abraham. Consider your role as a member of the household of faith, and pray that God would continue to use you as a witness to the world. View Resource

  • Our Merciful, Faithful High Priest Devotional

    Hebrews 2:16–18

    Our Savior was truly tempted. Yet, He never gave in to sin. Because He succeeded, the glorified Christ, both in His humanity and in His deity, is able to give us just what we need to stand firm against the Evil One. We are united to the whole Christ by faith, and thereby we benefit both from His deity and His glorified humanity. This is a great mystery, but we can go to Him when we are tempted and trust Him for the resources to overcome sin. View Resource

  • Christ Our Priest Devotional

    Hebrews 2:17

    We find it difficult to know how to pray for ourselves, but Christ does not have that problem. He prays for us perfectly before His Father such that if we trust in Him, we cannot fail to persevere in faith. Our perseverance ultimately depends on Christ’s faithful prayers for us. If you are discouraged this day, know that if you trust in Jesus Christ, He is praying perfectly for you right at this very moment View Resource

  • 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. Though we cannot fully explain it, we know that God knows what it means to be human because He took on our nature in Christ. Praise Him for His merciful service on our behalf. View Resource

  • Helping the Tempted Devotional

    Hebrews 2:18

    Christ never sinned in any way, shape, or form — nor could He. His faithfulness even unto death means that we can receive salvation. It also means that we can overcome temptation even before we see Him in glory. Remember that Christ is able to help you in temptation and will enable you to overcome sin if you rely on Him.
