• Minister in the True Tent Devotional

    Hebrews 8:1–2

    Many in our day anticipate the rebuilding of an earthly temple just like the one from ancient Israel.

Rejoice that the shadows have passed into reality and that the work in the heavenly temple is accomplished on your behalf. View Resource

  • Something to Offer Devotional

    Hebrews 8:3

    There is a price for God’s beneficence to us. But it is a price that we cannot and would not pay even though it is required of us. God’s grace to us is manifested in the price Christ paid, a price necessary to bestow God’s favor upon us. No matter how far you progress in your knowledge, never forget the simple truth of God’s amazing grace. View Resource

  • The Priests on Earth Devotional

    Hebrews 8:4–5

    Many of us have gone through times in our lives when depression has made us feel like we are abandoned. But none of us has ever been abandoned like Christ was on the cross. When you endure times of depression, ask the Lord to return your joy and remember that because of Christ, the Father will never abandon you. View Resource

  • Better Promises Devotional

    Hebrews 8:6

    In the old covenant, God was pleased to speak to His people through the mouths of others. But in the new covenant, He came to earth and spoke to us directly in Jesus Christ who is the very incarnation of the eternal God. The new covenant is better not because its promise is different but because its promise is far more direct. View Resource

  • A Faultless Covenant Devotional

    Hebrews 8:7

    It is tempting to think that old covenant saints found the life of faith much easier to live than we do. However, as we have seen, the days of prophets and kings had only an incomplete and provisional revelation. If you are tempted to think that the days of old were better, remember that we live in the day of more full revelation. View Resource

  • The New Covenant Devotional

    Hebrews 8:8–9

    We live our entire lives in absolute dependence upon God. From our first breath to our last, it is God who sustains us. This is most evident in our redemption that comes only after the old covenant points out our absolute need for a savior. Never forget your utter dependence on God for all things, especially your salvation. View Resource

  • Written on the Heart Devotional

    Hebrews 8:10

    The Law being written on our hearts reveals two important things. First, we are reminded that the essentials of the Law are not merely outward observances but are matters of the heart. Second, we know that since God will have to do the writing, we cannot do it ourselves. Thank God that by His grace He has changed our hearts. View Resource

  • Final Redemption Devotional

    Hebrews 8:11-12

    The fact that the restoration is taking longer than expected might be a surprise to us, but it is no surprise to God. He has determined that the world continue longer than we might have thought. All things are working out according to His sovereign plan. Remember that though things might surprise you, they do not surprise God. View Resource

  • Becoming Obsolete Devotional

    Hebrews 8:13

    We live in a period of overlapping ages. The old covenant has passed away and the new covenant era is becoming more and more a reality. One day we will not need the written Law because it will be completely engraved on our hearts. Rejoice in the truth that God will bring you to complete perfection at the end of this age. View Resource
